Fire safety is vital in any professional workplace. As part of the company's safety procedures, head office personnel were recently taught about the risks that fire poses to health and safety.
The importance of fire safety in the workplace is underpinned by health and safety legislation that places a duty on employers to establish policies and procedures and ensure their employees receive appropriate training.
This course provided an overview of how to quickly identify a fire and the safest way to respond to different classes of incident.
Basic fire safety awareness is an essential part of any emergency plan, and ensures employees have a working knowledge of their evacuation procedures.
The subjects covered as part of the fire safety awareness training were the below;
- Fire risk assessment
- The triangle of fire
- Sources of fuel
