Fire Training

Article 21 of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 makes clear that it is the duty of the responsible person to ensure that all employees receive adequate fire safety training upon recruitment and on exposure to new or increased risks.

There are certain core issues that employees need to be trained on such as regulation, rules and procedures, fire prevention, what to do in the event of a fire, equipment and good practice, and action to be taken upon an alarm sounding.

Prevention of fires is certainly better than cure and adequate training means that your staff can be an invaluable part of preventing fire and it's causes.


The frequency and depth of training will depend upon the specific duties of employees and site conditions. Generally this should be annually (six monthly for certain staff) and commensurate with duties and responsibilities.

Aside from being a legal requirement, safe evacuation procedures should be second nature to staff and those expected to operate an extinguisher must know how to use them and be comfortable in doing so before they ever encounter a fire, for then is not the time to learn!


Our fire courses can be held on site at your premises or at our training facility in Essex. The focus is on ensuring delegates understand the why behind the rules and theory with free discussion and practical examples.  This allows attendees to think about and understand the principles 

Subscribers to a qualifying package can include the training they require as part of their package.

Fire Warden

Fire wardens are an essential part of business. Such competent persons must be appointed by the responsible person to assist them in protective and preventative fire measures. 

Their duties are both for emergencies, for example during evacuation and day to day, which may include essential checks.
