Fire Safety Training

Employers are legally required by The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 to provide information, instruction and training to employees about fire precautions in the workplace at the time they are first employed and repeated periodically where appropriate.

Staff training in fire safety is also a very important part of your business continuity arrangements and we offer a variety of cost effective training courses designed to meet your requirements.

We offer general fire safety and fire warden/marshal courses for groups of staff, delivered by fire safety specialists either at your premises or premises or ours. Bespoke training for specific occupancies or employers is also catered for e.g. evacuation training for residential care homes using phased evacuation - learning in a classroom only provides information, however practical application, during our "drill" sessions, brings it all together - making your teams safer!

Our training courses start from as little as £25 per person and certificates are awarded on completion.
