Enrol on to our Fire Safety Awareness training course to go into more depth and help increase your understanding and develop your knowledge/skills in fire safety.

What are the fire safety precautions? It takes only 3 minutes for a room to catch on fire, so it's vital you know fire safety precautions and top tips!
  1. Install a smoke detector or fire alarm and test it every month
  2. Ensure a safe way for people to escape. This is one of the first rules of fire management - a significant escape route out of the building
  3. Suitable fire safety signs and clear pathways to emergency routes and exit doors
  4. Fire extinguishers with a guaranteed shelf life and the knowledge to use one
  5. Have a fire escape plan and practice the drill twice a year
  6. If a fire does occur, ensure everyone is out, stays out and call for help.
  7. Training your staff to assist in an emergency is essential for fire safety in the workplace
What are the types of fire? There are 6 different types of fire classes and several types of fire extinguishers to help attack the fire.

Class A - Ordinary combustibles. In other words, solids materials such as wood, plastic, paper, clothes and clothing. The most common fire extinguisher to use is the water extinguisher, but you can also use foam, wet chemical and dry powder extinguishers.

Class B - Flammable liquids e.g. petrol, alcohol, oil and paints. It's best to use foam, CO2 gas or dry powder extinguishers for this class of fire.

Class C - Flammable gases such as hydrogen, butane and propane. A dry powder fire extinguisher is the only type you should use, but you should also shut off the gas supply.

Class D - Flammable metals including magnesium and lithium. The best type of fire extinguisher to use is a dry powder extinguisher.

Electrical - Fires caused by electrical equipment e.g. faulting wiring or frayed cables. CO2 gas or dry powder fire extinguishers are best to use for this class of fire.

Class F - Cooking fats and oils. The only fire extinguisher to use for this type of fire is a wet chemical extinguisher.
Why is fire safety important in the workplace? Fire safety is of the highest importance in any building and can affect any business at any time.

As an employer, you are responsible for fire safety in the workplace and meeting all required health and safety standards to ensure the safety and protection of your staff.

If a fire does occur and you aren't prepared or have adequate training, it can cause serious problems for your business and endanger everyone.
What is the purpose of fire drills? The purpose of a fire drill is to ensure that everyone knows what to do in an event of a fire. If they didn't, serious injuries could occur.

By completing fire safety training courses and doing fire drill practices with those who may be in danger means a fire evacuation can be carried out in a calm and orderly manner and those with fire responsibilities can complete their tasks confidently. Whether it's for fire safety in a care home, school, pub, office or any workplace, it's important to practice fire evacuation procedures.
Is fire safety training a legal requirement? Yes, fire safety training is a legal requirement. All employees need to undergo basic fire safety training at induction and refresher training expected annually. This should be carried out by a competent person with suitable and sufficient skills and knowledge of fire safety.

It's also crucial that employees should receive adequate fire safety training, as stated in the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. Our online fire safety course will teach your staff the necessary skills and knowledge in fire safety and fire evacuation procedures. Suitable for care homes, offices, restaurants, schools or any type of workplace.
Can I do a fire risk assessment myself? You can do a fire risk assessment yourself as long as you have the help of standard fire safety risk assessment guides. However, if you don't have the expertise to do the fire risk assessment yourself, you need to appoint a 'competent person' to help.

As an employer, you are the responsible person and you must carry out and regularly review a fire risk assessment of your premises, but that doesn't mean the employer has to do it themselves. They can appoint a competent person to do so. Our online fire safety awareness course will cover risk assessments and how to conduct one.
What does PEEP stand for in fire safety? PEEP in fire safety stands for Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan. It is an individual escape plan for anyone who may have difficulties evacuating a building to reach a place of safety without any help or support from others.

Under The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, the employer or business owner is the responsible person and should provide an evacuation plan for all people in the building, including those that need a PEEP.

A PEEP may be required for someone with:
  • Mobility impairment
  • Sight impairment
  • Hearing impairment
  • Cognitive impairment
  • A medical condition or injury
