Who Should Take This Fire Safety Course?
Under 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.
People in charge of fire risk assessments and fire evacuation procedures require fire warden training, as well as practical training in using firefighting equipment.
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 a 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.
The Fire Safety Order states that, in England and Wales, 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.’
On successful completion of the course you will be sent a quality assured certificate through the post the next working
day. This can be used to provide evidence for compliance and audit.
All of our courses are accredited by the CPD Certification Service as conforming
to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines.
This course is also approved by RoSPA, the Royal Society for the Prevention of
Accidents, as providing quality and content-approved training.
