Fire Safety Awareness

The purpose of the Fire Safety Awareness Course is to develop awareness of fire hazards and train participants on how to safely contribute to the reduction in fires and also to reduce the impact in case they occur. Without any doubt, awareness will reduce the risk of fires actually breaking out and therefore save lives. This course complies
with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and Health & Safety legislation.

Who Should Take This Fire Safety Awareness Course?

There are regulations in England and Wales which require employers, occupiers, landlords, owners of business or non-domestic premises also known as the ‘responsible person’, must by law, provide staff with the necessary information and training on Fire Safety.

However, as with all Health & Safety legislation, the responsibility does not stop with the employer. Furthermore, case studies reveal that should an employee’s cause a fire to start due to lack of attention, horseplay or carelessness, as a result they may be committing a criminal act under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.

Therefore, it is reasonable to expect that an employee takes responsibility for attending and/or obtaining a course on Fire Safety Awareness. In case of failing as a result this duty prevents the employer from being able to carry out their legal duties.

In this case, by completing this course you will be making much safer environment and also appreciate the fact that you can apply what you have learned at home.
