Basic Fire Safety Awareness

Basic Fire Safety Awareness

Employers must carry out risk assessments for basic fire safety which can be carried out as part of an overall assessment or as a separate assessment in it’s own right.  Fire assessment risks must be kept up to day and employers must make sure that sufficient measures are in place to protect life and minimise the risk of injury

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 applies to all workplaces regardless of the number of employees. It requires employers to provide adequate training in fire awareness for all members of their staff. Our online fire awareness training course fulfil employers legal requirements and details how to implement fire safety measures in the workplace.
