We offer fire safety training for fire marshals and employees in London, Surrey & the whole of the South-East, so your team knows what to do if there’s a fire.
Fire safety training is important. Everyone in your business must know what to do in the event of a fire. For businesses with smaller premises this may simply mean pointing out the fire exits and explaining the evacuation procedure.
However businesses operating out of larger commercial premises with a higher number of staff need to provide more comprehensive fire safety training.
For these kinds of larger organisations, the Fire Industry Association’s guidelines say that fire safety training must include what to do on discovering a ﬁre. For example, how to raise the alarm, how to alert members of the public and visitors and arrangements for calling the emergency services.
Staff must also know the full evacuation procedure and you may want to train them to use fire-fighting equipment, such as fire extinguishers.
UK fire safety legislation guidelines say that training must be kept up to date, which means making sure new employees are fully inducted, Fire Marshal training is refreshed regularly (usually once a year), and new training is carried out if there is a significant change to your commercial premises.
If you have a lot of people in your commercial premises, you must appoint Fire Marshals, also known as Fire Wardens. Fire Marshals have proactive day-to-day duties, as well as reactive duties, should there be a fire.
