The Fire Safety Regulation Order 2005 requires businesses to provide their staff with fire safety training as part of their fire risk assessment. Adequate fire safety training can make a big difference in saving someone’s life, after all.
Know-How Training Ltd’s fire safety training course in Chester keeps you fully compliant under the terms of the 2005 order, as well as prepares your employees in case a fire breaks out. Our programme improves your staff’s awareness of fire and how they tackle fire.
Our fire safety training is a one-day programme that equips trainees with the requirements needed to become a qualified fire warden. By the end of the training, our trainees will possess the following:
- An in-depth understanding of fire and the causes behind fire-related emergencies
- Recognition of the legal duties of a fire warden
- Knowledge of fire safety requirements
- Familiarisation with fire hazards
- An idea of emergency evacuation procedures in the workplace
We aim to prepare individuals for unprecedented fires. The skill and knowledge trainees will gain from the programme will help them promote workplace fire safety, as well as equip them to protect their colleague’s well-being in case of an emergency.
To achieve our aim, we developed a substantive fire safety module that will tackle the following:
- Fire risk assessment
- Fire prevention
- Evacuation strategy
- Types of fire extinguishers
- How to use fire extinguishers
- Roles in the event of a fire
- Fire drill activities
- Key fire legislation in the area
Our programme takes trainees through the subject of fire safety on a step by step basis. We begin with basic knowledge on ways fire develops to more advanced modes of protection. We also offer training on evacuation procedures. Our instructors teach participants how to gauge the safest exits, how to cope with panic and fear, and how to help vulnerable individuals.
Anyone who wishes to be a fire warden in their organisation can take our fire safety training course in Chester. We do not require previous knowledge of fire safety. Anyone is free to train as long as they are 14 years old and above.
We also welcome trainees with a medical condition or a learning disability. Our instructors will adjust the training according to the participants’ learning needs.
How We Assess Trainees
We gauge a participant’s viability for fire marshal qualification with a written assessment. At the end of every programme, trainees must successfully pass the 30-minute assessment by achieving a minimum of 15 questions out of 20.
Upon completion, they will receive a certification for Fire Safety Level 2 RQF or Level 6 SCQF.
Why Fire Safety Training Matters
Protect Workers and Clients
Worker safety is the primary reason to embrace fire safety training. A fire in the office is deadly, especially if your employees do not follow fire safety protocols and have no training. By training them, you’ll have a team of fire wardens who know precisely what to do in case of a fire emergency.
Improve Your Fire Risk Assessment
Businesses must conduct regular fire risk assessments to determine the premises’ safety, as well as demonstrate their compliance with government regulations. Our fire safety training in Chester minimalises the impact of a fire on your business by improving your staff’s fire risk assessment.
Boost Employee Skills
Your team will learn life skills that they can continue to use in the future. They’ll know how to evacuate in case of an emergency, how to identify potential hazards, and how to use fire fighting equipment properly.
Abide by Government Legislation
Fire safety training is a legal requirement. By training your staff and formerly logging their certification, you prove your dedication to minimising the risk of fire and protecting the team.
