About Fire Awareness Training

Relevant for workers in both office and industrial environments, trainees will understand their role in fire prevention and learn how to identify and control fire hazards.

These fire awareness training courses are suitable for general fire safety induction training and for regular refresher training, both of which are legal requirements.

Participants also learn proper fire safety evacuation procedure and how to handle firefighting equipment – all essential knowledge that protects lives in the event of a fire.

Why Is Fire Awareness Training Important?

There are around 22,000 workplace fires in the UK every year. This means around 423 businesses face the devastation of a fire every week, with some never recovering from the destruction fire can cause.

Workplace fire safety training is critical for effective fire prevention. Our fire awareness courses address the general fire risks and safety tips that every employee must be made aware of.

And in the event of a fire emergency, employees with the right awareness are more likely to act rapidly and appropriately. Individuals trained in the use of fire extinguishers can potentially stop fires from spreading, limiting potential harm to property and people. It’s also vital all employees know proper evacuation procedures to enable a safe, swift exit from the premises.

Are you aware of your responsibilities?

Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (the Fire Safety Order), employers are responsible for protecting their employees and the public from fire risks. Part of this requires employers to provide adequate training to staff.

Adequate training means employers must:

  • Include general fire safety training as part of the induction process for all new employees
  • Provide regular fire safety refresher training for all staff
  • Provide additional training if workplace fire risks change
  • Give workers with additional responsibilities, such as fire wardens, the necessary training to fulfil their role

And records of every employee’s training history must be maintained to prove compliance.

In addition to providing training, employers must also ensure premises meet the required safety standards and complete fire risk assessments.

Fire safety awareness training helps employees remain vigilant and committed to fire safety. Robust workplace fire safety awareness also means all workers can contribute to the process of completing a fire risk assessment, making the practice more straightforward and meaningful.

What does the course cover?

  • Fire safety legislation: Gives a summary of fire safety laws, including the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, and the implications for employers and employees in promoting fire safety.
  • Fire prevention: Creates awareness of the typical workplace fire risks and how fires spread. It also includes correct electrical equipment usage, safe storage of flammable materials and good housekeeping procedures.
  • Fire detection & warning systems: Provides an overview of the various kinds of fire detection and warning systems.
  • Emergency procedures: Gives instruction and guidance on what to do in the event of a fire emergency. It also covers the use of emergency exits, escape routes and how to raise the alarm and evacuate.
  • Firefighting equipment: Explores various types of firefighting equipment that are available in the workplace. This includes how to safely and successfully use fire extinguishers.
  • Fire safety responsibility: Outlines the duties that responsible persons, including fire marshals and fire wardens, and workers have in supporting fire safety.

Employees will have a thorough understanding of the fire risks in their workplace by the end of the fire and safety courses, as well as the knowledge and skills necessary to act appropriately in the case of a fire emergency.

Trainees also receive a fire safety certificate upon completing the course.
