Is Fire Safety Training a Legal Requirement?
UK employers of one or more people are legally obliged (under the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order 2005) to ensure staff are trained about fire precautions in the workplace. Failure to provide training means you will fall foul of the law. As a result, you could be prosecuted resulting in a fine or prison sentence. Furthermore, you will be placing your property and staff in danger.
No one thinks a fire will happen to them, but fires do happen, therefore it is essential you are prepared for the worst-case scenario.
What Does Fire Safety Training Involve?
We offer training in your own workplace. Training on your premises is beneficial because the training is tailored to your business environment. As a result, your staff will become familiar with what to do if a fire breaks out in your building. Our training includes the following:
- General fire safety awareness
- Current fire safety legislation
- Causes of fire
- Evacuation protocol

Prevention is the best form of protecting your business against fire hazards. In addition, training will ensure that your legal obligations are met. Furthermore, having trained staff will safeguard your business and employees while mitigating fire risks.
