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 requires there to be a 'responsible person' to ensure that employees are given sufficient fire safety training. 

By law, employers are required to provide fire training to all staff. It is good practice to take training annually to empower staff with the knowledge and understanding of how to act responsibly and raise awareness of risks in a fire  

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
