Fire Safety Training

keeping employees safe from the danger of fire

What is fire health and safety training?

Fire Safety TrainingFire health and safety training is a legal requirement enforced by the UK Fire Legislation which stipulates that all employers need to ensure that their employees have adequate fire safety knowledge and training for their working environment.

Our two main courses we offer are:

Apart from the legal duty, it is also good practice to make sure that your employees are safe and know what to do in the event of a fire as this can prevent a small incident escalating or even save lives.

At Fire and Safety Solutions we are able to offer a range of fire health and safety training solutions, for companies large or small, from first time fire safety training though to refresher courses or bespoke training for your specific environment. As well as the theory, we also provide ‘hands on’ training with items such as fire extinguishers, showing the attendee’s the correct type and method for extinguishing fires.

Key Points:

  • Range of courses from basic fire safety awareness through to Fire Warden training
  • Hands on demonstration of equipment and their use, such as fire extinguishers

Fire Warden Training Course

We will also establish a chain of command and run through theoretical situations of emergencies that could occur in your building type, asses how the fire warden responds and advise where more effective fire control and evacuation methods could be used.

Fire wardens are not only a practical aspect of fire safety, it is also written in law (The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005) that you must have enough, trained and appointed fire wardens to perform evacuation procedures in an emergency situation. The number of fire wardens will vary depending on how many people you have in the building and the size of the building, a fire risk assessment would need to be carried out by Fire and Safety Solutions to determine the correct number of fire wardens.

The Fire Warden course lasts approximately 2.5 hours.
