Approved by RoSPA & CPD

Current legislation, The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, applies to all workplaces regardless of the number of employees and requires employers to provide adequate training in fire awareness for all members of their staff.

Our online fire safety training course is aimed at all employees working in care homes to assist them in identifying and reducing the risk that fire presents in the workplace. This course will provide candidates with a general understanding of basic fire awareness  including what should be done in the event of a fire, how to prevent a fire occurring and a basic introduction of the protocol of extinguishing a fire.

Fire marshals (sometimes known as fire wardens) are civilians trained to assist in emergency fire evacuation procedures at businesses and other organisations. It is a legal obligation that workplaces must have a sufficient number of fire marshals to deal with fire emergencies.

This course provides extensive knowledge of fire prevention, evacuation protocol and using fire extinguishers.
