Benefits of attending:
Fire Safety Training is a legal requirement. If you are an employer, landlord or an occupier of a nondomestic building you are classed as the ‘responsible person’ for Fire Safety. As the ‘responsible person’ there are certain obligations you must fulfil that are outline in the Fire Safety Order. This course will cover these requirements for you.

Here are examples of your legal obligations under the Fire Safety Order:-

  • Compile and regularly review the Fire Risk Assessment for the premises.
  • Inform staff of any risks that you have found when carrying out the Fire Risk Assessment.
  • Implement, review and maintain fire safety measures to wholly remove or reduce the risk of fire to those in the premises.
  • Plan, and make your plans available for other, for an emergency.
  • Adequately train staff in fire safety and provide necessary information as outlined above.

Among other legislation, for example The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, there are three main regulations and acts that cover fire safety in England, Wales and Scotland. These are the following:-

Fire safety law and regulations are outline in the The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 for England and Wales.
However in Scotland, these requirements are highlighted in Part 3 of the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 along with The Fire Safety (Scotland) Regulations 2006.

Finally, The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 requires employers to assess, reduce and if possible remove entirely the risk of fires or explosions for work activities that involve dangerous substances.

This training course can be tailored to include details of your company-specific materials and if desired previous company related case studies. In this case, our health and safety consultant will require details of your system and sample forms for inclusion prior to the course.
