Fire Safety Training Courses for your Employees
Our Fire Safety courses are available as part of the Health and Safety eLearning Suite in one great package.
Fire Safety Training
In our Fire Safety course, learners will look at the common causes of workplace fires, how to prevent fires from starting, the correct firefighting equipment to use, safety responsibilities and which safe evacuation procedures to use in the event of an emergency. At the end of the course, learners are invited to test their fire safety training knowledge to check levels of understanding and retention rates.
Complementing this course are our two shorter Fire Safety eLearning courses, Don't get Burnt and Fire – Can you Handle It?. These are 5 minute bursts of specific information presented in a way which will maximise engagement and knowledge retention.
Don't get Burnt presents an immersive-style challenge whereby learners must identify the correct steps to ensure personal safety as they evacuate a building due to a fire. Choosing the correct and safest steps will ensure they make it out of the building and away from harm's way.
Fire- Can you Handle It? presents learners with a variety of different fires that could realistically happen in the workplace (waste paper, electrical, kitchen equipment). The aim of the course is to correctly identify which type of fire extinguisher should be used to safely put out the fires and prevent them from spreading further.
All our fire safety training courses are available off-the-shelf for ease of use; we can also work with your subject experts to tailor the approach and information to suit your organisation's requirements. Using the Adapt Authoring Tool you can even modify our courses yourself.
Fire safety in the workplace
Fire safety is everyone's responsibility at work since fire presents a significant risk to the livelihood of organisations, the equipment they own, and the staff that work for them. Particularly vulnerable organisations include those who operate from a single place of business, those with poorly maintained or out-of-date equipment, and those who stock flammable materials such as liquids or gasses. However, without proper fire safety training for employees, the risk of a fire starting, injuring, or even killing is greatly increased for everyone.
What is required from your business with fire risk assessments?
Under health and safety legislation, those responsible should carry out a fire risk assessment on the workplace and take measures to reduce the impact a fire could have on the building and the people contained within it. Safeguarding human life is the number one priority of all fire safety training, and that's why organisations are required to provide information and training on their company's fire safety policy to all their employees.
