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.
