About Fire Extinguisher Training:

Fire extinguisher training is essential to equip individuals with the knowledge and skills necessary to fight fires safely and effectively.

This online fire extinguisher training course teaches trainees how to recognise different types of fire and select and operate the right extinguisher to tackle the blaze.

Why is Fire Extinguisher Training Important?

Fire extinguisher training online promotes workplace fire safety and gives trainees the knowledge and skills to fight fires effectively and responsibly.

Trainees will develop the ability to respond quickly in an emergency and tackle small fires safely, which can help limit the spread of a workplace fire and its potential to harm people and property.

Knowing how to effectively extinguish fires also lets trainees create safe escape routes in the event they are obstructed by flames during an evacuation.

Are You Aware of Your Responsibilities?

As an employer, you are responsible for fire safety within your workplace. Your duties are to:

  • Conduct comprehensive fire risk assessments to identify potential hazards
  • Implement necessary preventive measures
  • Develop effective fire evacuation plans
  • Maintain fire-fighting equipment and systems in safe working order
  • Review and improving fire safety measures regularly
  • Train employees to respond to fire incidents safely

As part of your fire safety training programme, further training should be given to any employee with additional fire safety responsibilities. Employees with additional responsibilities, known as fire wardens or fire marshals, should be given instruction on the safe use of fire extinguishers as part of their enhanced training.
