Fire Awareness Training is a crucial aspect of workplace safety that provides employees with the necessary knowledge and skills to prevent and respond to fire emergencies. This training program is designed to ensure that workers are aware of the risks associated with fire, understand the necessary precautions to prevent fire hazards, and know what to do in case of a fire outbreak.

The primary goal of Fire Awareness Training is to equip workers with the knowledge and skills needed to prevent and manage fire hazards in the workplace. By educating employees on fire safety, they will be able to recognise the risks associated with fire and take necessary precautions to prevent fires from occurring. This includes identifying potential fire hazards such as faulty electrical equipment, flammable materials, and improperly stored chemicals.

In addition to preventing fires, Fire Awareness Training also includes the proper use of fire extinguishers and other fire suppression equipment. Including how to use different types of extinguishers and the proper techniques for extinguishing different types of fires. They will also learn how to identify the different classes of fires and which extinguisher is appropriate for each type of fire.

Fire Awareness Training teaches you what to do in case of a fire outbreak, and helps you in the development of an emergency evacuation procedure and fire risk assessment. Employees must know how to evacuate the building quickly and safely. Fire drills are an essential part of fire safety training, as they allow employees to practice emergency evacuation procedures in a simulated environment. This ensures that they are well-prepared and know what to do in case of a real emergency.

Who is our Fire Awareness Training for?

Our Fire Awareness Training is for anyone in any care or non-care sector having knowledge and skills of how to prevent and put out a fire when needed to reduce loss of life and damage.

Employers are responsible for providing fire safety training to their employees. Training should be conducted on a regular basis and can be tailored to the specific needs of the workplace. For example, a manufacturing plant will have different fire hazards than an office building, and therefore the training can be tailored to address the specific risks associated with each workplace.
