In addition to our comprehensive range of Fire Safety Training Courses we also offer a number of bespoke course options. These options range from the creation of a specific course for your individual needs or simply tailoring a standard course to make it more relevant to your company or organisation, for example the use of customer specific documentation and imagery can often increase delegate engagement significantly as the experience becomes much more relevant to them.
Our courses are generally provided on-site at your location anywhere in the UK, but we do also operate from a number of training centres, including our own state of the art training facility at our Head Office in Worcestershire. Tutors are all former or serving Fire Fighters with a relevant training qualification, so you are safe in the knowledge that you are receiving the right advice from people that have actually done the job.
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.
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.
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 marshal’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.
At UK Fire Training, our services are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Whatever your training or support requirements, we will endeavour to meet your needs.
