Staff Fire Training

All employers have legal responsibilities to train their staff in case of fire – it’s found in Fire Precautions (Workplace) Regulations 1997 (as amended 1999), The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (FSO) and Health and Safety legislation. More than this, it’s generally accepted that employers have a duty of care to prevent injury to any person or employee and to preserve life.

So fire training simply has to be part of any organisation’s plans.

But effective training takes time, and can disrupt the working day. That’s why all our training is carried out on site, at your premises. It means there’s minimal disruption, no travel and your staff are trained in the very environment where they might – one day – face a real fire.

And our fully qualified trainers always try to make everything as involving and as real as possible - with staff being encouraged to use equipment on small, controlled, live fires wherever practical.

Each course is suitable for groups of fifteen and, at the end; you’ll receive a certificate showing the training has been successfully completed.
