Who Should Take This Fire Safety Course?

Under UK government legislation, all employees are required to take adequate fire safety training, regardless of the industry they work in. This online Fire Safety Course provides suitable training for all levels of employees, including managers, supervisors, full-time and part-time staff.

Employers are required to ensure that all new employees undergo fire safety training when they first start work and that existing employees have their training refreshed if any new fire risks are identified by the risk assessment.

Do You Comply With Fire Safety Regulations?

Duties are imposed on employers by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, the Fire Safety (Scotland) Regulations 2006 and the Fire Safety Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2010.

These Regulations state that all employers, owners, landlords or occupiers of business or non-domestic premises are known as the ‘responsible person’ and are required, by law, to provide staff with information and training on fire safety.

Regulation 21 of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 specifically states that 'the responsible person must ensure that his employees are provided with adequate safety training (a) at the time when they are first employed; and (b) on their being exposed to new or increased risks'.

The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR) also place duties on employers to ensure their employees are protected from risk and receive suitable training on the appropriate precautions to be taken in order for the employee to safeguard himself and other employees in the workplace.
