FIRE SAFETY TRAINING

MANDATORY FIRE TRAINING

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, 1974 Health & Safety Act and the Management of Health & Safety regulation require staff to receive appropriate fire training / instruction.

AN EMPLOYERS OBLIGATION TO THEIR STAFF IS:

  • What hazards are present and what level of risk could they be exposed to
  • Be repeated periodically where appropriate
  • Be adapted to take into account of new or changed risks to health and safety of the employees concerned
  • Be repeated periodically where appropriate

A BASIC FIRE TRAINING PACKAGE SHOULD INCLUDE:

  • Theory of fire
  • Action in the event of fire
  • Action upon hearing a fire alarm
  • Fire prevention
  • Basic fire safety awareness

OTHER PERSONS WHO REQUIRE SPECIFIC TRAINING ARE:

  • Fire Marshals
  • Fire Managers

Premises with a large number of occupants would require to have trained fire marshals who would oversee building evacuation, fire prevention, and carry out first aid fire fighting. It may also be necessary to nominate a senior person e.g. a safety officer or senior manager, to be responsible for all aspects of fire safety including training, overseeing fire contracts (e.g. fire equipment maintenance) and record keeping. The “senior person” would ensure fire drills and fire training is implemented at the correct intervals.
