What Is Fire Safety?

4th December 2020

Fire safety training is key to maintaining a safe workplace environment. Through comprehensive training courses, you can minimise the risk of a fire within your organisation and ensure that all members of staff are aware of fire prevention methods.

In this blog post, we take a closer look at fire safety training, reveal the types of courses available and what you can expect to receive from an accredited fire safety workshop.

Why Is Fire Safety Training Important?

Fires can be devastating. They can destroy properties, cause serious injuries and take lives. With this in mind, it is no surprise that businesses have a legal obligation to provide adequate fire safety training for their employees.

In fact, under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, organisations are legally required to nominate a responsible individual to carry out a fire risk assessment, create a fire emergency plan and implement a fire risk management system.

To minimise the risk of a fire occurring within your workplace, it is essential that employees understand the causes of fire and what actions they need to take in the event of a fire. Ultimately, fire safety training helps to safeguard and protect staff, visitors and residents.
