You can find our full range of fire safety courses at the bottom of this page.
Fire Training Legal Requirements
It is a legal requirement that employees take part in a certain amount of fire safety training. The exact level and type of training which is required depends on the results of your fire risk assessment, which we are also able to perform and discuss with you if you require.
Guidance on the fire safety training required by law can be found in the provisions of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. Please get in contact with us for advice on your specific fire training needs, and will be able to provide you with a bespoke fire safety training solution that will help you comply with the current legislation.
It is essential that all fire safety training is repeated on a regular basis. Our fire training courses are certificated for up to 3 years, depending on your company policy on the topic.
On-Site Fire Safety Training Advantages
Fire training courses should be delivered at the location where your delegates are based, if possible. This ensures that they reflect the fire risk profile of your premises and take into account your specific fire procedures, including your emergency plan.
All UK Fire Training courses are delivered at our client’s sites, and we use a pre-course consultation phase to ensure all aspects of the fire training meet your expectations.
Which Fire Safety Training Course do I Need?
All employees need a certain level of fire training and information. As a minimum, new starters need a basic induction which covers the alarm system, emergency procedures, and means of escape from the building.
Staff also need to know what type of fire fighting equipment you have on the premises and the safety considerations of their use. Fire extinguisher training for instance is essential and legally required wherever a fire extinguisher is present, as improper use of these can be dangerous. Fire training must also take account of the role that each person performs and the level of fire safety responsibility they are given.
The role of the fire marshal (or fire warden) carries a number of specific responsibilities which can vary from one company to another. Specific fire marshal training tailored to these roles should be given to all fire marshals and this should include practical fire extinguisher training and practice. The fire warden’s role in an evacuation is vitally important to the safety of all building occupants and this topic must be explored in detail with reference to company emergency procedures.
