About this course
Fires destroy property, cause injuries, and take lives.
A fire in the workplace can also mean the loss of jobs, and one of the key strategies for any organsiation must be to maintain a safe workplace and prevent fires from happening. We do this through fire safety training.
With proper training; we can eliminate fire hazards and respond quickly and efficiently if a fire breaks out. Without proper training a small incident can quickly grow to become a major incident with devastating outcomes.
Everyone is at risk if there is a fire. However, there are some people who may be at greater risk because they live with physical or mental health conditions which may challenge their ability to escape from a fire. Additionally workers may be working in an unfamiliar environment, such as Agency Nurses or Carers, and for them, having the knowledge about how the organisation they are working in manages a fire-related incident is particularly important before the start of the shift.
Fire safety training can teach workers how to recognise fire hazards, conduct a fire safety risk assessment, prevent a workplace fire, and respond if a fire occurs.
