Fire Awareness Training

Course Description

Fire Awareness training is in line with The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and should be given to anyone in the workplace who needs be aware of the risks associated with fires and the procedures to be followed in the event of a fire.

You should take the Fire Awareness training before doing the Fire Marshal training. To do Fire Marshal and Fire Awareness together, please see our Fire Safety Level 2 training.

We use an audio and visual presentation and training can count towards your CPD. You will be issued with a course certificate after the successful completion of your training.

Fire Awareness training introduces the following:

  • calling the fire service
  • evacuation
  • fire doors
  • fire equipment
  • good housekeeping
  • regulations
  • risk assessing and precautions
  • smoke alarms
  • the fire triangle
  • the law
  • training requirements

What the HSE say

Employers (and/or building owners or occupiers) must carry out a fire safety risk assessment and keep it up to date. This shares the same approach as health and safety risk assessments and can be carried out either as part of an overall risk assessment or as a separate exercise.

Based on the findings of the assessment, employers need to ensure that adequate and appropriate fire safety measures are in place to minimise the risk of injury or loss of life in the event of a fire.

To help prevent fire in the workplace, your risk assessment should identify what could cause a fire to start, i.e. sources of ignition (heat or sparks) and substances that burn, and the people who may be at risk.

Once you have identified the risks, you can take appropriate action to control them. Consider whether you can avoid them altogether or, if this is not possible, how you can reduce the risks and manage them. Also consider how you will protect people if there is a fire.

  • Always ensure good housekeeping e.g. avoid build-up of rubbish that could burn
  • Always keep fire exits and escape routes clearly marked and unobstructed
  • Avoid accidental fires, e.g. make sure heaters cannot be knocked over
  • Carry out a fire safety risk assessment
  • Consider how to detect fires and how to warn people quickly if they start, e.g. installing smoke alarms and fire alarms or bells
  • Ensure your workers receive appropriate training on procedures they need to follow, including fire drills
  • Have the correct fire-fighting equipment for putting a fire out quickly
  • Keep sources of ignition and flammable substances apart
  • Review and update your risk assessment regularly
