Fire Awareness Training Course Contents
1. Fire Health and Safety Training: The Nature of Fire
In order for an employee to participate in the process of keeping the workplace safe from fire, they must have a good understanding of fire and fire behaviour. This section explains “The Triangle of Fire”, “Fire Growth and Development”, and “Fire Spread’’.
2. Fire Health and Safety Training: Fire Signage
Signs are used to communicate an important message to prevent disaster in an emergency, and even save lives. This section illustrates the different types of signage used and helps employees to understand their meaning and the importance of following their instructions.
3. Fire Health and Safety Training: Fire Hazards
Following an explanation of potential fire hazards that can occur in the workplace, employees are invited to explore two interactive workplaces in order to identify 10 fire hazards within each.
4. Fire Health and Safety Training: Discovering a Fire
This section explains what action to take in the event of an emergency. Information includes “Raising the Alarm”, “Calling the Fire Service” and “Evacuating the Premises”.
5. Fire Health and Safety Training: Portable Fire Extinguishers
When most fires start they are very small, but if left to develop, they will grow and spread, causing a great deal of damage and threatening the occupants of the building. This fire extinguisher training regime shows how to operate common fire extinguishers and the importance of using the right type of extinguisher on each type of fire.
Test & Certificate
This Fire Awareness Training course concludes with a 20 question multiple choice test with printable certificate. In addition, brief in-course questionnaires guide the user through the sections of the training, and are designed to reinforce learning and ensure maximum user engagement throughout. As well as printable user certificates, training progress and results are all stored centrally in your LMS (Learning Management System) and can be accessed any time to re-print certificates, check and set pass marks and act as proof of a commitment to ongoing legal compliance.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) order 2005 states that the responsible person must ensure that their employees are provided with adequate safety training:
The responsible person must ensure that his employees are provided with adequate safety training . [this must] (a) include suitable and sufficient instruction and training on the appropriate precautions and actions to be taken by the employee in order to safeguard himself and other relevant persons on the premises; (b) be repeated periodically where appropriate
Fire and Health and Safety legislation requires employers to provide fire training for ALL staff by law. It's good practice for employers to train staff at least every 12 months. Empowering your staff with the knowledge and understanding of how to act responsibly in the event of a fire and raising awareness of potential risks and hazards will ensure you operate within the law and protect your workforce and business against significant losses as a result of fire.
