The Fire Safety Order (2005) requires by law that construction sites have a person responsible for the general fire safety practices. This includes carrying out tasks such as up to date risk assessments and implementing appropriate measures of fire prevention, to minimise risk to life and property.
The Fire Safety and Awareness course covers the following:
Definition of the responsible person
Duties of a competent person
Introduction to fire risk assessment
Basic fire prevention
Chemistry of fire
Classes of fire

How fire spreads
Managing people with special needs in your building

Live fire training and use of fire extinguishers can be added to this awareness course. Contact us for details.
The Fire Awareness course aims to ensure delegates are aware of how fires start, spread and are controlled and to gain a better appreciation of the threats posed by fire to themselves, others and property at the workplace. By the end of the course delegates will:
Understand their duties relating to fire safety under law
Identify how to prevent fire and limit the spread of fire
Acknowledge the importance of effective evacuation
Understand the requirements of an effective fire action plan.
