About Fire Safety Courses

Every workplace is vulnerable to fire, so all employees must undertake adequate fire safety training regardless of their industry. 

Our fire safety courses train employees to reduce fire risks and improve workplace safety. Courses also prepare employees to act accordingly should a fire break out, including how to safely extinguish small fires and evacuate. More detailed courses are also available on fire risk assessment, fire safety inspection, fire door inspection and fire warden training to prepare duty holders for additional fire safety responsibilities. 

Why Are Fire Safety Courses Important?

There were around 10,000 workplace fire incidents in England alone in 2021/22. Fires can start in seconds and take only minutes to spread through entire buildings, preventing safe evacuation and causing catastrophic property damage. 

Fire safety training gives employees the knowledge and skills to reduce fire risks and respond effectively in an emergency, protecting lives and property. Trainees learn to spot potential fire hazards and implement prevention strategies as well as safe evacuation and firefighting techniques. The courses also support legal compliance, helping organisations meet regulations and avoid penalties. 

Are You Aware of Your Responsibilities?

Employers must give employees adequate fire safety training. They must also establish effective fire prevention measures and work to eliminate or control fire risks.

These responsibilities are enforced by the following legislation:

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005: This is the key piece of legislation governing fire safety in England and Wales. Under the Fire Safety Order, all employees must receive sufficient fire safety training.

Employers must also conduct and review a comprehensive fire risk assessment of their premises. The risk assessment should then be used to implement fire safety measures and plan for a fire emergency. Any findings from the risk assessment must also be shared with employees.

The Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022: Introduced new duties under the Fire Safety Order for responsible persons of high-rise residential buildings, including the need to provide information about their building/s to the local fire and rescue service.

The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974: This legislation mandates all employers create a safe work environment.

Employers must also conduct frequent refreshers to ensure employees retain the knowledge gained during initial training. Failing to adhere to these regulations can result in legal repercussions such as fines or prosecution.
