About Course

The aim of this fire safety course is to raise all employee’s awareness and to look at ways in which a fire can become a hazard in a variety of environments. Identifying the presence of certain elements and substances, which can start a fire, can help to minimise or remove the risk of a fire starting. A fire can start and quickly get out of hand where there is a lack of appropriate control measures in place. This course covers fire regulations and compliance and looks at what can happen when fire safety rules are ignored.
