Congratulations, you are about to embark on a course in a subject that is important to all of us.
You will, no doubt, be well aware of the potentially devastating effects of fires in the workplace in terms of lives lost, injuries, damage to property and the environment, and to business continuity. You may also be aware that it is believed that most fires are preventable. The importance of fire awareness in the workplace is underpinned by health and safety legislation that places a duty on employers to ensure their employees receive appropriate training on procedures they need to follow, including fire drills.
From cause to prevention and response, this course provides an ideal introduction to fire safety awareness and foundation for more in-depth training in fire safety.
