fire safety training 

Fire safety training is a requirement of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. "All staff should receive basic fire safety induction training and attend refresher sessions at predetermined intervals".

 

Staff expected to undertake the role the fire Marshal (or fire Warden) require training to a level appropriate for their duties. Fire Marshals are usually responsible for ensuring the evacuation of a workplace in case of fire, however this should not expose them to undue risk. In order to assess the level of danger from fire, it is important that such staff have a thorough understanding of fire and how it behaves INSIDE a building. This sounds fairly obvious, but in reality very few people actually know what it is like to be in a building that is on fire. On top of this, where staff are responsible for members of the public, they should also know how people are likely to behave in an emergency situation.

 

Where employers expect employees to tackle a fire, additional training is required to ensure those employees are equipped with appropriate knowledge of fire fighting techniques relative to the equipment available.

 

We provide a range of fire safety and other training courses, see below.

 

We can supply a range of LPG fire training simulators.

 

We also stock a wide range of FIRE SAFETY, HEALTH & SAFETY and CONSTRUCTION SITE training videos and DVDs.

 

If the fire safety course you require is not listed, we may be able to design or adapt a course to suit your needs.

Fire risk assessment for building designers

A basic Fire Risk Assessment seminar is available for Architects & Building Control Officers etc. The seminar highlights problems with building design which manifest themselves after completion, and how knowledge about human behaviour should play a vital role in building design. Approved Document B also comes in for 'scrutiny'.

 


D.S.E.A.R. Training Courses

The 'Dangerous Substances and & Explosive Atmosphere Regulations 2002' require a risk assessment to be carried out where any significant quantities of dangerous substances are used or stored in the workplace.

We can provide in house or open training courses, that will cover the legal duties, and how to carry out a risk assessment. Examples of dangerous substances to which the regulations apply will be included (this includes natural gas supplies except to domestic-type equipment, also petrol when used in the workplace).

 

Control and mitigation measures will be discussed for a variety of workplaces. The course will explain when hazardous area classification is required, and refer to published models that can be followed in simple cases. The basic requirements for selecting appropriate equipment for use in hazardous areas will be explained.

 

Who should attend?

Managers and safety managers of companies using:

  • highly flammable solvents and gases (including LPG and acetylene);

  • paint spraying;

  • reactive chemicals;

  • combustible materials that can form dust clouds (e.g. flour, wood).

Managers of warehouses storing chemicals classified as flammable or oxidising (e.g. peroxides).

Laboratory workers.
