Fire Training – a Legal Requirement

Current legislation requires that staff should be trained in the actions to be carried out in the event of a fire.

This applies particularly to those with a special responsibility, such as senior executives, fire marshals, reception and maintenance staff.

The Health and Safety at Work regulations also place a duty on employers and the selfemployed to carry out an assessment of the risks to health and safety of staff and visitors.

On completion of a fire training course, participants will:

Have developed a greater awareness of the hazards of fire

Understand the nature of fire and how it spreads

Recognise the threat fire poses to people and property

Appreciate the need for effective fire emergency procedures

And participants will be able to:

Distinguish between different types of extinguishers and the fires for which they are
suitable

Tackle small fires with confidence as a result of “hands on” training

Communicate the fire safety message to their colleagues
