FIRE SAFETY COURSE CONTENT
UNIT 1| RESPONSIBILITIES
We begin by detailing UK fire safety regulations and what fire safety management is. In this context, we outline both employer and employee responsibilities.
UNIT 2| HOW FIRES START
Secondly, we look at how fires can start and develop in the workplace. This covers the 3 fundamental elements needed for a fire to exist, fuel, oxygen and heat. Known as the fire triangle. And the 4 stages of fires.
UNIT 3| FIRE PREVENTION
Thirdly, we look at fire prevention, and the measures you can take to ensure a high standard of fire safety. Because, fires don’t just happen. They are mostly caused by people due to accidents, omission, carelessness or deliberately.
UNIT 4| HEARING A FIRE ALARM
Next, to save crucial seconds in an emergency we learn about the procedures for an emergency evacuation. Because, once the fire alarm sounds, there is a small window of opportunity for everyone to escape safely. If staff delay, they risk inhaling more smoke and toxic fumes, reducing the chance of escaping safely.
UNIT 5 | TACKLING SMALL FIRES
In unit 5, we look at the information you need for fighting fires. For example, the different types of extinguisher. However, we emphasise staff should only fight fires if you’ve been trained to do so, and the fire is still in the early stages.
UNIT 5 | QUIZ
Finally, you progress to the 15 question multiple choice quiz.

Fire hazards pose a significant risk in the workplace. So, a lack of preparation can be devastating to human life and property. Consequently, this course provides information on safe and active fire prevention.
Legally, every business must undertake a fire safety risk assessment. After that, ‘appropriate’ equipment and training must be provided. This course helps meet these training requirements. And, therefore aids compliance to legislation.
