FIRE SAFETY TRAINING

FIRE MARSHAL TRAINING

Our Fire marshal training courses in London are delivered by professional Firefighters. Fire Marshal courses can be delivered at your venue or at ours. Attendees will receive advice and training from a real Firefighter covering the full roles and responsibilities of a designated Fire marshal. The training lasts 3 hours. 

FIRE RISK ASSESSMENT

The introduction of the “Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005”, requires a ‘responsible person’ working in any non-domestic premise to carry out a Fire Risk Assessment on said premise. We have a pool of qualified fire safety consultants who can attend your venue to relieve you of this responsibility.

FIRE EXTINGUISHER

Fire Extinguishers need to be kept in good working condition or else they are worthless. Siren Training can provide annual maintenance inspections of every extinguisher type at your workplace.   Fire Extinguisher training is either a bolt on to any Fire Marshal or Fire Awareness course, or alternatively, it can acts as a course in itself.

Fire Safety Training in the Workplace

Fire Safety Training in the Workplace

Workplace fires can have devastating effects for people and businesses. Businesses can find premises destroyed, equipment damaged beyond repair and have important data and paperwork lost forever. However important we may think these business assets are, it does not compare to the catastrophic effects of fire on people.

Most fires are preventable, and it only takes a thorough fire risk assessment to identify the hazards and implement safe working conditions to ensure fires don’t start and if they do, are contained by fire designed safety measures.

If your workforce, from senior management to the newest employee understood the basic elements of the fire triangle which highlights how fires are started, You would be able to implement preventative measures that make for a safer working environment and potentially save lives.

What can cause a fire in the workplace?

The main reasons fires start are:

  • Faulty or overloaded electrical equipment
  • Hot work practises (such as welding)
  • Cooking
  • Portable Heaters
  • Housekeeping and an accumulation of rubbish
  • Smoking
  • Arson

To prevent the causes of workplace fires, we must first understand fire behavior.

What is a fire hazard in the workplace?

A hazard is anything that can cause harm. Here are a few examples of how a fire can cause harm, even death

Smoke inhalation – This is the main cause of fire deaths. By nature we misjudge the dangers of smoke. We think because smoke is not a physical barrier we can easily pass through it unharmed. In fact, firefighters refer to smoke as ‘hot gases’ and would never move through it without specialist breathing apparatus. Its important to understand the make up of smoke.

This toxic cloud is made up of:

  • Carbon Monoxide and Hydrogen Cyanide that will make it difficult to breath, make you drowsy and is fatal.
  • Acrolein, Sulphur and Nitrogen will irritate and sting your eyes and airway
  • Phosgene and Dioxins are found in biological nerve agents and effect the central nervous system making it difficult to control basic movements.

What to do if a fire is detected or suspected?

  • Raise the alarm to warm others that there is a fire. This may be by activating a fire alarm call point, or even yelling “Fire!” or using an air horn in a small building
  • Call the fire service or make sure someone else has done so
  • Evacuate the building safely using your workplace’s evacuation procedures

What to do if you hear the fire alarm?

Do:

  • Stay calm
  • Act immediately
  • Leave the building through the nearest exit if safe to do so
  • Otherwise, use an alternative exit
  • If you re the last to leave the room, shut windows and doors (if time allows)
  • Go to the assembly point and make sure you are accounted for by the person in charge

Do not:

  • Panic!
  • Take your time to gather things or finish something before reacting to the alarm
  • Wait for someone else to react first.
  • Use the lift (unless it has been determined ahead of time to do so as part of a personal plan)
  • Attempt to fight the fire if you are not trained to do so
  • Go back into the building without being given the all-cleathat it is safe

Fire Safety Briefing at Workplace

It is a legal requirement that employers have a fire safety procedure in place and that these are made aware to all staff. Many employers choose to have this part of their induction for new employees, but all staff should be given refresher briefings to help remind everyone on what to do in the event of a fire.

All staff should be made aware of:

  • The emergency procedures
  • Where the fire exits are located
  • Where the designated assembly points are (and which one they should go to if there are multiple points for different parts of the building)
  • Fire prevention measures that are already in the building, including equipment
  • Why fire doors need to be kept shut or kept free of obstructions
  • How to report any fire safety concerns
  • Any known fire alarm tests, so  that all other alarms should be treated as real.

Visitors should be made aware of the fire safety procedures applicable to them. Also, some staff members may need additional help in getting out of the building quickly, so an appropriate personal emergency evacuation plan (PEEP) should be put in place that ensures their safety. This may include use of additional equipment like an evac-chair to assist them down the stairwell. Employees should be trained in using this type of equipment.

Alternatively, if occupants of a building require additional assistance, refuge areas are often situated in protected areas of a building with communications linked to building management. Arrangements need to be made in advance to ensure safe evacuation.

Legalities

The Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order of 2005 requires employers to ensure that employees are provided with adequate emergency evacuation procedures and suitable fire safety knowledge including Fire awareness and Fire Marshal training. To conclude, fire safety training within any working environment is a legal requirement under this order.

    5 star review  I had my 1 Day EFAW training at Old Street with Ash. He was absolutely amazing. I can often struggle with maintaining concentration for long periods of time, but he was so engaging, active and energetic that I was absorbed for the full session. He made us all feel so comfortable and at ease, and made everything easy to understand and remember. I walked out feeling confidently equipped and am really grateful for having learnt so much. Would highly recommend anyone to take this course, no matter your job.
