Fire Safety Awareness Course Overview

This course is designed for all employees as an introduction to fire awareness and is an excellent addition to include in your company induction programme for new employees.  It deals with how fires can occur and what to do in the event of a fire. The course also provides a foundation for those employees who want to develop their basic fire safety awareness in order to assist their employer by progressing to more specific fire safety roles in the workplace to manage fire risk (see our Fire Warden/Marshal course).

Fire Safety Awareness Course Content

  • The common causes of fire
  • The behaviour of fire
  • Fire prevention
  • What to do if a fire breaks out
  • How to use fire extinguishers
  • Emergency evacuation procedures

Course Benefits

The Fire Safety Order requires that fire safety training is provided to staff when they commence employment and that refresher training is provided on a regular basis.

Fire is often the biggest safety risk any businesses may have. Without fire safety training your insurances may not be valid and your staff are left vulnerable.

Don't think a fire won't happen to you, last year there were over 33,000 recorded fires in UK businesses and community buildings. Protect your staff now and give them the best chance of escape if a fire does happen.

Fire Safety Training is not only a legal requirement, it also saves lives and protects businesses.

Don't wait until it's too late!
