Effective, engaging and interactive fire safety training!

Everybody in your workplace must have training in fire prevention. Failure to train your staff in the basics of effective fire prevention means that you are breaking the law set within the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order 2005. Such negligence on your part, as an employer, can lead to a criminal conviction.

This course mainly focuses on fire prevention and the assessment of potential risks within your workplace, as these are fundamental points listed in the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order 2005 legislation. Participants of the course will gain sufficient basic knowledge in using fire fighting equipment, evacuation procedures, and the importance of limiting false alarms in the workplace.
