The Fire Awareness Training course is broken down into 5 sections.
1) Fire Awareness Training: The Nature of Fire
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.
2) Fire Awareness Training: Fire Signage
Health and safety signs can save lives – they 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.
3) Fire Awareness Training: Fire Hazards
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.
4) Fire Awareness Training: Emergency Procedure
This section explains what action to take in the event of an emergency. This step-by-step process includes raising the alarm, calling emergency services, and an evacuation procedure. We also explain what you should do if you’re unable to escape in an emergency, including a demonstration of the “Stop, Drop & Roll” technique.
5) Fire Awareness Training: Portable Fire Extinguishers
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.
Fire Awareness Certificate
Each of our courses ends with a multiple choice test to measure your knowledge of the material.
This Fire Awareness Training course concludes with a 20 question multiple choice test with a 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.

Very good length and pace with the Fire awareness training course. The way it is set out is easy to follow and helps you remember pertinent points. The demonstration of how to use the fire extinguishers is excellent and provides a constant reminder of what to do and how to do it. Overall, this course is very well thought out with very relevant content and not too long to follow.

A very well organized lesson that it really gives all the appropriate information about fire. If it's possible, I would like to have these pdf document in my file folder
The wording of some of the questions were misleading, but I suppose that is actually, the point.
This is a really good program, and covers the broad spectrum of FLS, and for the wide range of staff we have here with either a different understanding or role to do with FLS it is very suitable.
The information is delivered in a logical order and at a level that is required. The questions ask are well thought out and put in a way that make the person think about the information they have been provided with.
Legislation relating to Fire Safety
It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work. Take a look at relevant legislation below.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) order 2005
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 a fire.
