When it comes to fire safety in the workplace, everyone has a shared responsibility to ensure that major incidents can be avoided. However, this requires a dedicated approach to risk management across all levels of an organisation.

Anyone assigned fire safety responsibilities, including managers, supervisors, and employees, has a duty of care for those around them. Despite this, many of these individuals lack sufficient Fire Safety and Awareness training.  

By completing this training, individuals can become more attentive towards hazards in the workplace and ultimately save lives.

Our Fire Safety and Awareness Training Course

At AHR Consultants, we specialise in providing Fire Safety and Awareness training which is tailored to specific organisational needs. 

We can create a course to meet every need, with modules covering all theoretical and legal elements of fire safety. We also support knowledge with practical techniques for evacuation.
