Fire Safety Training

 

 

Why do we require Fire Safety Training…?

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states all staff should receive basic fire safety induction training and attend a refresher session at pre-determined intervals.

BS 9999:2008 Code of practice for fire safety in the design, management and use of buildings states:

“Fire safety training should be continuous, commencing with induction training on the first day of appointment of new staff and continuing in the form of regular refresher training by a competent person.

Thereafter, staff should receive sufficient training at regular intervals (at least once a year) to make sure that they remain familiar with the fire precautions for the workplace and are reminded of the action to be taken in an emergency. Training should be more frequent where there is a high turnover of staff or where there is a high risk of fire”

We offer 3 levels of training to suit most premises staff training requirements and budgets.

Cost effective training - Why pay twice!

Most staff training courses or the demonstration of equipment can be planned in advance or coincide with the annual servicing of your extinguishers due to them requiring regular test discharging and recharging under British Standards.

Rather than the engineer just discharge testing and recharging your premises extinguishers during the annual service visit and putting them back into service, your staff can benefit by having the equipment demonstrated to them by the engineer or gain first-hand experience by discharging them themselves under the engineer’s supervision.
