Why Do I Need Fire Safety for Education?

Whatever kind of business or organisation you work for, fire training is a legal requirement and one that you shouldn’t be ignoring. 

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

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) order 2005, Section 21

If you work in a Nursery, School, College or University, our Fire Awareness and Fire Warden titles for Education will help you fulfil your legal requirements quickly and easily. Our online training courses concisely but comprehensively cover everything you and your staff need to know to stay safe and legally compliant – from general information about the nature of fire, to fire signage and emergency procedures.

Keep your eyes peeled for the arrival of these two titles, or register your interest here.
