Under The Fire (Scotland) Act 2005, employers, property owners, landlords and other duty holders are required to assess fire risks in the workplace and implement appropriate fire safety precautions including raising the alarm and evacuating the premises.
Well trained and competent staff are the best defence against the threat of fire and the most effective way of managing alarm incidents and evacuation of your premises. This practical seminar workshop will provide delegates with a thorough understanding of fire safety issues and prepare them to confidently conduct fire risk assessments in their own workplace.
