Course Overview

Apart from the fact that it is a legal requirement under the fire precautions (workplace) regulations 1997 amended 1999 that fire safety training is provided to all employees. It has also been proved time and time again that a well trained workforce not only reduces the risk of fire, but in the event of one, will respond quickly and effectively to minimize the damage.
Each course is tailored to suit the needs of the company in which it is held, and all courses are tutored by either experienced firefighters or suitably trained fire trainers.
Each year the correct use of fire extinguishers saves UK businesses millions, preserves lives and prevents injury. Small fires can spread rapidly and trained staff can help to prevent the escalation of minor fires.

The delegates will be taught the correct selection and use of fire extinguishers via a practical demonstration where delegates will use a variety of extinguishers in real fire situations.
