Online Fire Safety Courses

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires that a fire risk assessment is carried out in order to identify and reduce the risks of fire. One of the key requirements is that all staff are provided with suitable fire safety training.

Why is Fire Safety Training important?

In 2018 the UK Fire Service attended 11,226 primary fires in non-domestic buildings with industrial, retail and food & drink establishments topping the table. Fires occur in all types of buildings including schools, colleges, churches and factory units and so it is important to appreciate that fire is a real and present danger. Commercial and non-domestic fires are a real risk for all businesses and organisations. Without adequate fire safety policies, procedures, risk management and training for many organisations the number of fires would be much greater. It is shocking to know how many organisations do not have adequate fire risk management procedures in place. These organisations are breaking the law and are putting people’s health at risk. Many of them are being prosecuted as the UK works to improve fire safety.

A comprehensive fire safety policy is not just about what to do in the event of a fire but also (and more importantly) how to prevent a fire in the first place. Fire Awareness Training and Fire Marshal Training are all vital components in ensuring safe work environments. An informed workforce reduces the chance of fire significantly protecting them, your visitors, clients and your business from harm.

What is the goal of Fire Safety Training?

Fire safety laws require businesses and organisations to have one is known as a ‘Responsible Person’. This person is responsible for completing a fire risk assessment, identifying risks and ensuring employees are trained about the risks and precautions of workplace fires. Usually, ultimately, the RP is the managing director but it could include headteachers, GP practice managers and the like. It is important that the RP is supported by a professional fire safety advisor. JCH Safety provides such services to many clients across the midlands. The goal of fire safety awareness training  is to provide your employees with the knowledge, training and experience to enable them to evacuate the building as quickly and carefully as possible in the event of an emergency. It is also vital in preventing fires happening. Anyone who has experienced a fire will know how terrifying it can be. Fire moves fast, spreads quickly and engulfs areas in thick, toxic smoke. People can panic and react in unexpected ways when under severe stress. Having a comprehensive evacuation process which is known by all employees will vastly increase the chances of a safe exit. Not only is fire safety training a legal requirement it truly saves lives.
