In Britain, fires in the workplace cost hundreds of millions of pounds every year. According to statistics, 80% of businesses never recover after a serious fire. This is why fire safety staff training is vital, as knowing how to deal with a fire can mean the difference between saving your business and losing it or the loss of human life.
The Fire Precautions (Workplace) Regulations 1997, as amended, state that places of work with five or more employees must have a written fire risk assessment, highlighting any precautionary measures taken against fire, and any preventative action required.
Fire safety staff training can help your company comply to UK law
Many companies have their staff undergo online training as opposed to a real demonstration. This is often a waste of time, as an online test is based around only one workplace, or is far too vague to be of any practical use in the real world. Our fire safety staff training is available throughout the London region, including Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire and is tailor made to suit your business, your staff and your requirements.
Fire Guard Services offer comprehensive, professional fire safety staff training to educate all members of staff on the dangers of fire, what preventative measures there are and what to do in the event of a fire. Our engineers are all IOSH (Institute of Occupational Safety and Health) certified, and have over ten years experience in the fire service. They have first hand knowledge and experiences of what dealing with fire is really like, and are therefore in the best position to train your staff for this situation.
We offer information in the form of a slideshow, so that you and your staff can learn the facts. Then, our engineers offer training aimed specifically around your place of work, be it an office, shop, factory etc. This gives your staff in-depth, practical knowledge of how to deal with fire in the workplace.
