Course Overview

Training is an essential part of proactive Fire Safety Management on every premises and in all organisations. This training is essential in order to protect employees, property and the environment.

There is very little practical purpose to providing Fire Extinguishers if no one on the premises can use them or any other fire equipment if they are not trained to use them.

Lack or no training in this regard could have devastating consequences for employees and the work environment.

At the end of the training employees will be able to identify the different types of fires, explain and practice fire prevention and perform basic fire fighting procedures.
