The Regulatory Reform Order (Fire Safety) 2005 and the associated Health & Safety legislation place an obligation on employers to ensure that their staff receive adequate fire safety training.
This fire safety awareness training course provides participants with the fundamental knowledge of what to do in the event of a fire, general fire prevention as well as the use of a fire extinguisher.
The fire safety awareness training course has been designed to allow you to meet your legal duties by providing all employees with appropriate fire safety training. Fire safety training needs to be completed by all employees joining an organisation and refresher training is to be provided on a regular basis, or where the workplace risk has changed. This course is fully accredited by the Institution of Fire Engineers (IFE).
