Fire Risk Assessment Training

This training course is for people who have been designated by the employer to carry out assessments within the company. The duration of this course varies depending upon the level of qualification required and the type of assessments to be carried out. In accordance with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 fire risk assessments must be carried out by a “responsible person” on a regular basis; as a result of this assessment a fire management plan must also be enacted. Fundamentally the assessment must include an identification of the fire hazards, the persons at risk from fire and ways in which to minimise the risk.

Introduction

This Three day Fire risk assessment training course is intended to provide delegates with the practical knowledge and skills to carry out fire risk assessments and prepare fire safety procedures to prevent the risk of fire occurring in the workplace.

Who should attend the Course?

This course is aimed at those who have responsibility for undertaking fire risk assessments and who wish to receive further certification in this subject in order to demonstrate competency.  Delegates will be expected to have some background knowledge of fire safety but may have little or no experience in undertaking fire risk assessments.

Where Can I attend the Training Course?

We can deliver ‘in house’ training at your Business venue and can provide you with a competitive price for group training. We can deliver any of the above courses at your place of work. The ‘on site’ training option is particularly cost effective for Companies that have several people requiring training at the same time (usually 6 or more people). In addition to this there are many other benefits to arranging a first aid training course ‘on site’:

  • Choosing your own venue gives greater convenience.
  • Travelling and accommodation costs can be reduced or removed.
  • A greater choice of course types are available.
  • The course content can be tailored to your exact requirements.
  • Businesses and Organisations can choose a suitable time to run their course.
  • Courses can be run anywhere in the UK.

Course Aims

The Course aims should identify hazards and take steps to prevent fire in order to protect the safety of occupants, visitors and those in the immediate vicinity.  This course is designed to offer practical hands-on experience in this area and allows delegates to gain experience in this field in the workplace.
