Overview

Everyone has a shared responsibility when it comes to practicing fire safety in the workplace. To ensure that major incidents are avoided, there should be evidence of a dedicated approach to risk management across all levels of an organisation. Knowledge and understanding can go a long way in achieving this, with fire safety training laying the foundations for a positive safety culture amongst employees.

Our training consists of multiple modules which can be tailored to meet the specific needs of delegates and their organisation. We can create a course to meet every need, with modules covering the theoretical and legal elements of fire safety, whilst supporting knowledge with practical techniques for evacuation.

Using an array of real-life examples, we encourage individuals to be attentive towards potential hazards within their working environment. This is accompanied by in-depth guidance on equipment and signage, which helps to reduce the risk of issues escalating in the future.


Very useful and practical training. I feel the team and myself have really benefitted from the session.
