Industries protect their property from ravages of fire with sprinkler systems, fire detection/alarm systems, fire extinguishers etc. The front line of any fire protection system is the first aid fire fighting with available fire extinguishers. Unfortunately, not all industry realizes how important it is to train their personnel in the safe operation of a fire extinguisher. Using an appropriate type of extinguisher on a small fire can prevent it from growing to a large devastating fire. A fire can destroy a business and cause significant unemployment and even death. Protect your employees and your business by training your staff in the proper use of a fire extinguisher. To build confidence of your employees in first aid fire fighting it is essential to properly train personnel once per year in the operation of fire extinguishers. We can arrange an onsite training session that will meet all the requirements for your personnel.
The actions of employees, if there is a fire, are crucial to their safety and that of other people in the premises. All employees should receive basic fire safety induction training and attend refresher sessions at pre-determined intervals.
The training should take account of the findings of the fire risk assessment and be easily understood by all those attending. It should include the role that employees will be expected to carry out if a fire occurs. This may vary in large premises, with some employees being appointed as fire marshals or being given some other particular role for which additional training will be required.
