This course provides an employee with a thorough explanation and understanding of why fire legislation, precautions and procedures are so important in the work place and an insight into lessons learned which have changed legislation.

It will provide a thorough explanation of the duties of a Fire Marshall and will cover all areas in relation to fire and the responsibilities placed upon an individual in both a non-fire and more importantly a real fire situation as well as managing people in an emergency situation.

It includes practical hands on training to assist all candidates to act efficiently and appropriately before, during and after an incident to deal with all aspects of managing people and fire quickly to safeguard people and extinguish a fire.

This could make the difference in between experiencing a small fire which is extinguished quickly or facing the consequences of a fully developed fire affecting personnel and also possibly causing severe damage to your building or your business.

(*All courses meet the requirements of the Regulatory Reform (fire Safety) Order 2005!)
