The Importance of Fire Safety Training:

Fire safety is everyone’s responsibility at work. Without proper fire safety training for employees, the risk of a fire starting and possibly injuring someone is greatly increased.

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. 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.


If you have any questions that are not covered here, please get in touch.

The most common cause of workplace fires is faulty or misused electrical appliances. Other causes of workplace fires include arson, smoking on the premises, poorly guarded premises with little fire detection equipment, and the incorrect storage of flammable materials. Almost every workplace fire is avoidable with the right control measures.

If a fire starts in the workplace, you should evacuate as quickly and safely as possible, without stopping to pick up belongings. Remember your fire safety training and follow your workplace’s emergency evacuation procedures. It is important not to panic but to take the fire alarm seriously, even if you suspect it is a false alarm.

You prepare for an emergency evacuation in your workplace by making sure everyone knows the company process and follows it. Pay particular attention to employees who need a specialised plan due to mobility issues. Good quality fire safety training makes an orderly evacuation likely by ensuring everybody knows what they are supposed to be doing.
