FIRE AWARENESS

 

Fire Awareness CourseFire Awareness course online designed for all staff.

Across the UK there are around 10,000 workplace fires each year causing devastation to the people that suffer.  These fires don’t just happen!

Usually, they are caused by people in one or more of the following three ways:

  • Meaning the wrong actions.
  • Through omission. Meaning not taking the right actions.
  • And thirdly due to arson.

This online Fire Awareness course provides the knowledge your staff need to reduce the chance of all three of these causes.

In addition, the CPD-accredited certificate helps employers meet fire safety training requirements and evidence due diligence.
