Every year, the fire service attends hundreds of thousands of fires around the UK, a significant portion of which occur in the workplace. The threat to safety is obvious, and both employers and staff have legal responsibilities to ensure that procedures are followed and all due care is taken.
Our module, set in a typical office environment, is designed to provide a detailed overview of good fire safety practice. We look at identifying potential risks, what to do in the event of a blaze and how to utilise different types of fire-fighting equipment. Fire Safety includes practical case-studies and a 12-question knowledge check section.
Learning Outcomes for this module include:
Learners will be aware of the elements that make a fire, the different types of fire and how they spread.
They will know how to identify and prevent causes as well as the responsibilities of themselves and their employer. They will understand the effects of fire in the workplace, how to tackle a fire, the different types of fire equipment and how it is used.
