The course was clear and explanatory. I think the first few sections were very slow and I felt talked-down to. By far the best bit was the last section, about the different kinds of fires and extinguishers (and, surprisingly, I found the fireman much more engaging than the professional presenter!)Would it have been possible to show what happens of the wrong kind of extinguisher is used?(Just one real objection: the fire "tetrahedron" - what on earth was that about??)
The programme for Fire warden was very enlightening. i could learn many things from this section specially the responsibilities, kinds of fire extinguishers to be used during emergency. I would rate the programme to be very good and knowledge based.
It made me consider points such as where are the fire extinguishers? what type are they? What is the best escape route? In many other areas it was very informative such as classes of fire, the type of signs etc..
after working offshore for over 5 years and being exposed to a variety of training packages this was very good, and made excellent use of videos shopwing how to extuingish fires - which we would normaly go to a site to experience.
Good quality but suggest extending to risks away from the normal place of work e.g. when visiting another office or when travelling on business the importance of assessing risks in a new environment should be emphasised. For example in an unfamiliar office identifying the fire exits and when staying overnight in a hotel walking the path from your room to the nearest exit so that you could find your way if the corridor were to be filled with smoke.
