Course Overview: Fire Safety Training
Fire Safety training is a legal requirement for all employers to provide their employees. Our online training course will help employers meet this obligation and will ensure that anyone who takes the training will have an in-depth understanding of how to act in the event of a fire at work.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 covers general fire safety in England and Wales. Local fire and rescue authorities are responsible for enforcing this legislation in most premises. Under the order, anyone who has control of premises or anyone who has a degree of control over certain areas or systems may be a ‘responsible person’ for example a manager/employer, owner or occupier for instance self-employed people. By law this person has to provide information, instruction and training to employees about fire precautions in the workplace.

This course is designed primarily for people looking to fulfil their legal obligation to provide fire safety training for their employees. This course is useful for any employee in any organisation including, chefs, kitchen staff, bar managers, any office-based job, full-time and part-time staff.

How it Works
This is a general guide to how the learning management system works.
This is an online course, all the training will be taken through your browser window. There will be no face-to-face sessions with instructors nor will you receive any training material through the post.
If you wish you may print out any page of the training material and may also print the notes you took during the training. You can also revisit the training material at any time, even after you have completed the course.
The material for this course has been broken down into several smaller lessons, each lesson dealing with a specific area of the overall subject.
The lesson consists of a series of pages in which an instructor will talk you through the lesson material at a pace that suits you. Pages may also include supporting pictures, graphs, animation or extra sounds to help with the learning where appropriate. Some lessons will include challenges/quizzes to help you keep in touch and interested in the material.
Lessons can be taken in any order and each lesson may be PAUSED and RESUMED at any stage. When all lessons in the course have been completed our system will realise and automatically record that you have successfully completed the course.
The course is self-paced so you decide how fast or slow the training goes. You can complete the course in stages revisiting the training at any time, however the training and test usually take between 2 to 3 hours to complete, depending on learning speed.
