Is Your Company's Fire Protection Legal?
1st July 2011
... Comments

If your company employs 5 or more staff it is now a legal requirement to ensure that your staff are sufficiently trained in how to raise the alarm, evacuation and the use of fire fighting equipment.

Do you or your staff know your legal responsibilities?

  • Has the role of fire wardens in your workplace been defined? 
  • Do you know how to identify fire hazards to reduce the likelihood of a fire starting?
  • Does everyone in your company know their individual responsibilities in ensuring good housekeeping, reporting observations and keeping up to date records?
  • Is everyone aware of the appropriate action to take if a fire occurs?
  • Are staff familiar with their escape routes, fire prevention measures and safety equipment?
  • Does your company have a evacuation procedure and a contingency plan?
  • Are you aware of the different types of extinguishers and how to identify which is which?
  • Would you know which extinguisher to use in an electrical fire and which to use on a cooking oil fire?

If the answer is NO to any of the above then anyone nominated as a fire warden in your company should be attending one of our Fire Warden Training Courses. Be assured it is important!

Our next course is on Wednesday 27th July from 9am - 12.30pm (approx)

£55.00 per person

All delegates receive a hand-out of the power point presentation along with pocket guides for identifying the different types of fire extinguishers and escape route signage. All delegates on successfully completing the course will receive a certificate.
