Fire Safety Training For Employees

Knowledge saves lives. If you are the responsible person in your workplace, it’s important that you provide fire safety training for employees.

Why provide fire safety training for employees?

  • It can help save lives in the event of a fire
  • It’s a legal requirement
  • Prevention is key, and training can potentially stop fires from happening in the first place
  • If a fire occurs, training will instil confidence in your employees throughout the evacuation procedure and could also potentially reduce building damage

The actions of staff in the event of a fire are likely to be crucial to their safety and that of other people in the premises. As such, all staff should receive basic fire safety induction training and attend refresher training sessions at pre-determined intervals. Those nominated to use the different types of fire extinguishers should receive additional training.

You’ll need to have some staff trained as fire wardens. The number you need will depend on the level of risk on-site, and the number of employees you have on the premises at any one time. A comprehensive fire risk assessment will determine the level of risk, and how many fire wardens you should have.

It is also recommended that fire drills are carried out twice per year to ensure that the emergency evacuation plan is fully understood, and that staff fire safety training has been effective.

How are the courses delivered?

Our range of courses can be delivered either on-site (which we recommend) or at an alternative training location if on-site isn’t feasible. We will ensure that everyone who needs fire safety training receives it – regardless of working hours, shift patterns or locations.

Our courses vary in length but typically last between 2 and 4 hours – depending on which course is selected. The number of attendees per course is between 15 and 20.

Are your training courses accredited?

Our Fire Warden training course is recognised by The Institution of Fire Engineers (IFE). Founded in 1918, the IFE assesses knowledge of fire and professional experience, awarding internationally recognised membership grades and fire-related qualifications.

On completing any of our training courses, delegates will receive a certificate of attendance.
