Covered in this Course

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. 

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

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.

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

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.

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

Excellent course and very easy to follow

This is a very useful course. It is so easy to forget what colour extinguisher is for what type of fire and this information in this course is very straight forward as well as being very detailed.

Informative and easy to understand.

No summary provided

OK but includes nonsense trivia.

This is *much* better than the environment course. However it still suffers from "irrelevant crap" syndrome. I don't care whether a metal fire is "class D", and a wood fire is called "class A" etc. What I care about is what sort of fires I can use a given extinguisher on, and I believe it tells me this on the side of the extinguisher - correct?Knowing which letter of the alphabet has been arbitrarily assigned to which sort of fuel source does not help me very much when tacking a fire so shouldn't even be part of this IMO. It's OK to put it on a slide, but seems pointless to test for it.I believe there was other stuff under the same category (pretty much any numerical stats on this stuff are pointless IMO), but the class "X" thing was what I recalled.The videos of seeing the extinguishers in action were *very* useful to see.

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

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.
