What is fire safety awareness?

Fire safety awareness refers to the knowledge and understanding of the precautions and measures that individuals can take to prevent fires from occurring and to minimize the damage caused by fires. This includes being aware of general fire safety precautions, such as having an escape plan, understanding the leading causes of home fires and injuries, and being prepared to respond to emergency situations.


What is fire safety awareness training?

A fire, or similar emergency can happen at any time in your workplace. This three-hour course will ensure that your staff and their managers all know what to do to maximize safety in the event of a fire or a gas leak.

You should choose this course if you want to learn how to respond in the event of a fire or of hearing a fire alarm.


Why is fire safety awareness training important?

Fire Awareness Training is a legal requirement for all staff under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and current HSE regulations. This course covers basic fire safety, including evacuations, the use of extinguishers and legal responsibilities.

The course is important for your team and your company, since the law states that, as an employer, you must ‘ensure that your employees are provided with adequate safety training’.

This training is designed both to protect your team and fulfill your legal obligations under relevant health and safety and fire laws.


What do you learn on the course?

Put simply, this course could save your life. In just three hours, you can learn how to respond positively and proactively in an emergency situation, making the right decisions that will protect yourself, your colleagues and company property.


What does the course cover?

Your course will cover the basics of fire safety, from prevention to special needs staff, including:

  • General fire precautions to be observed in all workplaces
  • Truth about fires
  • Causes of fire and ignition sources
  • The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
  • Use and maintenance fire extinguishers
  • Use of other fire fighting equipment
  • Emergency evacuation procedures
  • Action to be taken on hearing a fire alarm
  • Location of Assembly points
  • Special arrangements for staff with disabilities and visitors
  • Where possible, we will deliver practical training in the use of your organisation’s fire extinguishers and other fire fighting equipment, with live demonstrations possible by prior arrangement.

How long does the training take?

Fire Awareness Training takes just three hours, and can be arranged at your convenience to fit in with staff schedules and shift patterns.


Is there an assessment?

You will be continually assessed throughout the training to make sure that you have understood both the principles being taught and their practical application in your own workplace. At the end of the course, you will undertake a Fire Risk Assessment project to demonstrate your understanding.


Do you receive certification?

You will not receive formal certification for this course, since fire safety is the responsibility of your employer.


How often should fire safety awareness training be carried out?

Fire safety awareness training should be provided to individuals at regular intervals to ensure that they are equipped with the latest knowledge and skills to prevent fires and respond to emergency situations.  he frequency of training should be based on a number of factors, such as changes in the workplace, new equipment or processes, or the results of fire drills and incidents. Generally, it is recommended that fire safety training be conducted at least annually


Where is the training held?

Since fire safety applies to everyone in the workplace, Fire Awareness Training is normally done in-house to allow everyone to attend. In-house training makes the course more practical and relevant, as we will be able to tailor the training to the actual equipment and evacuation procedures of the buildings in which they work.

In-house training is more convenient, covering the whole team in one session, more cost-effective, as there are no travel costs, and more efficient, as your staff will only be away from their jobs for the three-hours of the course.
