What is Covered on Fire Safety Training Courses?
Fire safety training will vary depending on the depth of information and what is required by the training. For example a company or organisation may require a bespoke fire safety training course which informs workers of information which is specific to their own procedures such as where to assemble after evacuating the building, the sound that the alarm makes, who is responsible for certain roles such as performing the duties of a fire marshal etc.
Along with bespoke training there are also accredited qualifications which have set prescribed syllabuses that have to be followed. Examples of these include the NEBOSH Fire Certificate courses which focus specifically on fire safety, whilst other qualifications such as the NEBOSH General Certificate, NEBOSH Construction Certificate, SMSTS, SSSTS and IOSH Managing Safely courses all have a unit on fire safety taught in them, such is the danger from fire in a place of work.
Whilst the depth of information and specific dangers will vary depending upon the particular course or type of training, the majority of them are likely to cover certain issues including how fires are started, how to prevent them as far as is reasonably practical in the place of work, fire risk assessments, fire evacuation procedures and the appointment and responsibilities of certain individuals like fire marshals.

Need an Accredited Course?
Along with designing bespoke health and safety training programmes, we also run the accredited NEBOSH, IOSH and ConstructionSkills (CSkills) health and safety courses as open courses at selected venues across the UK, as well as in-house for those companies who have a number of employees requiring the training, as it will be much more cost effective than sending them all onto a scheduled open course.
For more information please call 0115 984 9940 to discuss the options or send us an online contact form. Alternatively, use the "Courses" menu at the top of the page to view the courses and qualifications for the various awarding bodies.
These courses form the basis for our in-house training programmes. They can either be run as they are if the outline is exactly what you want, or can be be modified to suit the individual requirements of your organisation. Two or more can also be combined to tailor a bespoke training session for you.
