Fire Safety Awareness FAQs
What is fire safety?
The majority of fires in the work place can be prevented by a responsible approach to health and safety. Fire protection looks at aspects of potentially destructive fires and ways to mitigate their effects.
Is fire safety training mandatory?
Under government legislation, ell employees are required to take adequate fire safety training. Typically this is done upon induction at a new company but is also necessary as and when new risks are identified after a risk assessment.
What are the main differences between the in-house training and e-learning versions of the course?
While both versions of the course will discuss how fires start and behave, the in-house version of the course is likely to be more specific to the premises the delegates work in. Both will discuss preventative measures, whilst the former will involve practical exercises.
Who should attend this course?
All staff should attend the fire safety awareness course so that they know how to reduce the risk of fire, deal with fires if appropriate, and understand how to safely escape a building should the worst happen.
