Fire is probably the biggest risk to life that most people face in the workplace. It is, therefore, amazing that many people have little or no idea about the common causes of fire, how to prevent them from starting and how to escape safely from the scene should a fire occur. This course deals with all three of these vital subjects, and successful completion of the course could literally be the difference between life and death.
Employers are responsible in law for both fire prevention and the safe evacuation of employees in the event of a fire. This course will ensure that employees have the necessary knowledge to play their part in cooperating with their employer in the implementation of fire safety in the workplace.
