Workplace Fire Safety & Fire Management
Fire safety precautions and measure must be put in place in all workplaces in the UK. Legislation put in placed by the FSO, states that at least one member of staff must be nominated to be the responsible person for workplace fire safety. Fire safety duties of Fire Marshals / Fire Wardens / Fire Safety Managers include fire safety risk assessments that enable them to implement and maintain an effective fire management plan.
To eliminate and manage the risk of fire in your workplace your staff must be adequately trained in how to assess the fire risks within your working environment and have put into practice fire precautions and safety procedures. Certifications in fire safety prove that your organisation is taking responsibility for fire safety, as staff have the relevant qualifications.
Fire Safety training courses are designed for a variety of workplaces and working environments and cover the following general fire safety areas:
- Fire safety in the workplace
- Fire safety awareness
- Fire safety risk assessment
- Fire marshal / warden
- NBOSH Fire Safety and Risk management
As the Fire Safety legislation changes annually, existing delegates that are responsible for fire safety require frequent update training to ensure their qualification are valid. Additionally, with the frequent changes in the law, people who may not have been affected by fire safety laws previously, may find that they are required to put safety measures against fire in place. Fire risk assessment training courses will help you decide the nature and extent of the general fire precautions which you need to provide. Sometimes it's important to choose an accredited fire safety training course to support your working environment. The IFE, Institute of Fire Engineers, approved fire safety courses to ensure they comply with safety rules.
Some of the fire precautions that you may be required to put in place are:
- means of detection and giving warning in case of fire;
- the provision of means of escape;
- means of fighting fire; and
- the training of staff in fire safety.
