Every year, people die or are seriously injured as a result of a fire at home or in the workplace. Fire costs businesses vast sums of money, sometimes causing them to close permanently.
You must ensure that your premises meet fire safety regulations, while ensuring all your employees and visitors know what action to take in the event of fire or emergency.
The danger of losing your business should be incentive enough to ensure you meet Fire Safety requirements within your business but failing to do so can have serious legal consequences as well.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (FSO) requires the responsible person (employer, occupier or owner) to take reasonable steps to reduce the risk from fire and ensure safe escape for both employees and visitors.
In addition, you are required to carry out a fire safety risk assessment and implement and maintain a fire management plan.
If you fail to meet your legal obligations not only could you lose your business and risk imprisonment, you could also be responsible for someone’s death.
You can prevent of all this by ensuring you and your staff have received Fire Safety training.
There are a number of different ways that Envesca can help you meet your obligations and give you peace of mind that you are doing everything you need to do.
Whether you would prefer your staff to attend one of our Open Fire Safety Training Courses or you would like us to carry out In-Company Fire Safety Training whereby bespoke Fire Safety training can be provided at your premises and all your team can be trained at once.
Our non-accredited Fire Safety Awareness course is ideal for all your staff, but is particularly useful as part of an induction programme for new starters in any workplace. It provides a basic understanding of fire safety and ensures that your employees have the knowledge and skills required to protect your business from the risk of fire.
If you would prefer your staff to undergo an accredited Fire Safety Awareness course then our CIEH Level 1 Award in Fire Safety Awareness course is the perfect option. Whilst this incurs a small additional cost, you have the peace of mind that the candidates have understood and retained everything they’ve learnt because they undergo an exam at the end of the course. Not only does this give them a nationally recognised qualification but you also have further evidence that you have taken reasonable steps to ensure complete compliance.
If your company requires Fire Wardens or Fire Marshals then our CIEH Level 2 Award in Fire Safety Principles is the perfect training solution for them. It provides them with the knowledge and skills required to carry out their duties relating to fire safety and emergency procedures.
As we have previously mentioned, you, the business owner, is responsible for conducting Fire Risk Assessment within your business. Our CIEH Level 3 Award in Fire Risk Assessment and Control course will not only teach you why you need to carry out Fire Risk Assessment but it shows you exactly how to do it. You will learn everything you need to know when it comes to completing Fire Risk Assessment in your business. If you are a caring and responsible employer, why wouldn’t you do this course?
If you are unsure of what level of training you or your staff should undergo then please call Shelley on 01452 898180 and she will happily help you assess the best way forward to ensure you are meeting your legal obligations.
