The first section of our Fire Awareness Training looks at the nature of fire.
SECTION 1

To begin, we cover the nature of fire – how it works, and the different ways in which it can spread; we also cover smoke and the dangers it poses. This introduction is important for users so they understand what behaviour to expect from fire and smoke. It will help in the process of keeping the workplace safe. 

Signage is a very important factor in preventing a fire and even saving lives.
SECTION 2

Health and safety signs are used to communicate important messages to prevent injury or give instructions in an emergency. This section identifies the different types of signs you may see in the workplace; we define what they look like, what they mean, and our Traffic Light System provides a simple way to remember the different types.

The third part of our Fire Awareness Training course features an interactive office where you spot possible fire hazards.
SECTION 3

In this section, we discuss the potential fire hazards that can arise in the workplace – covering ignition sources, flammables and combustibles. We also discuss certain working practices that need to be implemented to avoid creating fire hazards.

Looking at the different types of fire extinguishers and what types of fires you should use them on.

To conclude our programme, this section teaches users about when it’s safe to fight a fire, and when it’s NOT. We provide demonstrations on how to use the five common types of fire extinguisher, as well as fire blankets. Users learn about the different “Classes of Fire”, and which extinguisher to use on each class.

Why is this training important?

COMPLIANCE

It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work.

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

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

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 a fire.
