Fires & Explosions in the Workplace Certificate

Every year, hundreds of people in the UK are injured by fires and explosions at work. These injuries are not restricted to stereotypically “dangerous” industries – fires and explosions can occur in almost any workplace.

Furthermore, the majority of these incidents are preventable. In this course, you will learn about the UK legislation that underpins best practice with regards to preventing fires and explosions at work, and the practical steps you can take to ensure a safe working environment.

You Will Learn:

  • Why fire safety and the risk of explosions should be of concern to all business owners, regardless of industry or type of business
  • The five steps employers should take to identify and manage fire and explosion-related risks in the workplace
  • The main points of the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmosphere Regulations 2002 (DSEAR) and how you can use a hierarchical approach to prevent fires and explosions
  • How the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 and other legislation can help you prepare for an emergency
  • Why combustible dust is dangerous and how to store it safely
