Fire Safety Training
We know running a business takes a lot of time and effort.
We know taking your staff away from their everyday roles for half a day upsets the workflow.
But 1) fire safety training can save lives if the worst happens and 2) it’s the law!
Can you honestly say that if a fire broke out now, your staff would know how to tackle it?
Would they know which extinguisher to use?
Would they know when to make that call between being able to tackle a fire or evacuating the building?
How an employee acts during the stress of a fire outbreak is crucial to their safety and the safety of other employees around them. As an employer, it is YOUR responsibility to ensure they receive the correct fire safety training to ensure they can deal with a fire in the correct way.
Fire Safety Training Course
We don’t mess around. We don’t skip bits. This is serious stuff. That’s why our fire safety training course covers everything your employees need to know so they’re comfortable in dealing with a fire appropriately.
The fire training course covers:
Fire Prevention, Precautions and Procedures
Fire Hazards and how to identify them
Components of the Fire Triangle
Sources of Fuel and Ignition
Fire Spread - Conduction, Convection and Radiation
Fire Safety Legislation and why it’s important
Means of Escape and Evacuation Procedures
Classification of Fires
Fire Extinguishers including the different types and how to identify them
Practical experience of using fire extinguishers on live fires
How long does the Fire Safety Training take?
The fire safety training takes 2-3 hours.
This can vary depending on the number of attendees on the course. If there’s quite a few, the practical training element will take a little longer. That’s expected.
It may also take a little longer as we like to make sure all attendees are confident in using fire extinguishers. There’s little point training someone how to use an extinguisher if at the end they’re still afraid to use it.
So it may take a little longer to make sure everyone gets to the final stage.
