Fire Safety Training

Figures show that over half of all companies affected by fire never resume trading and that the majority of business loss caused by fire can be attributed to human error, demonstrating the importance of effective fire safety training. If you are looking for fire safety training in and around Wigan and across the UK, make sure you choose an accredited professional company that will deliver your fire safety training in accordance with the latest guidance and regulations. At Elite Fire Equipment Services we understand the importance of fire safety training, and how it can benefit your business. All our training is bespoke and designed for your business. Our fire safety training is designed to help prevent fires, by educating on risk, as well as training your employees on what to do should a fire break out. As a responsible employer, you have a duty to protect your employees. Providing them with professional fire safety training will help to keep them safe in the workplace.

Customised Fire Safety and Emergency Training

There is no one-size-fits-all model for good fire safety training. As such Elite Fire Equipment Services have developed a range of fire safety training courses tailored to meet a variety of customer needs and suitable for all levels of delegate experience. Each industry has different risk points, and it is important that the fire safety training delivered is relevant to your industry. Our training courses are reviewed regularly to include the latest legislative changes and are delivered to a guaranteed standard by our qualified and experienced professional instructors.

We tailor our courses to suit the specific needs of each customer, in particular reflecting the nature of the premises and environment in which they work. This ensures training is more interesting, engaging, effective, and relevant to the individual. This helps with the retention of the information, which improves the chances of people remembering their training in the event of a fire. Knowing what to do in the event of a fire, reduces panic and can help to reduce damage to property, people, and business.

Our delegates receive course notes and handouts and are awarded certificates on successful completion of the course. It is important that you keep a record of the training courses that your employees have attended, as it shows due diligence on the part of the employer.

Fire Safety Training Courses

We run a variety of different fire safety training courses, dependent upon your business needs. If you are considering arranging fire safety courses for your company, speak to our time to discuss criteria such as price, duration, date, and location.

We use the latest equipment to simulate practical hands-on training, whilst of course ensuring the safety of delegates and consideration to the environment. Hands-on training is an essential part of helping people to remember and retain what they have learnt during their fire safety training.

With the introduction of The Fire Precautions (Workplace) Regulations 1997, amended in 1999, employee safety training is more essential now than at any other time in the past. The objectives of training courses are:

  • To prevent the outbreak of fire and to minimise damage if one should occur.
  • To safeguard employees, the workplace, and the business from the danger and destruction of fire.

Fire Awareness Training

This course is suitable for all employees. The fire awareness training course teaches people how to prevent fires, with safe practices in the workplace. This will be relevant to your business, industry, and local environment. It also teaches people what to do in the event of a fire. Having fire awareness training can reduce panic in the event of a fire, and can help people to remain safe during the evacuation process.

Fire Marshal/Warden Training

It is your duty as an employer to protect and safeguard all of your employees. Having a designated fire marshal or fire warden can help to do so. Your designated fire marshal will need fire marshal training to ensure they know what to do in the event of a fire. This fire warden training will be based around the business needs and will include areas such as how to effectively use different fire extinguishers, as well as detailed information into how to prevent fires.

Fire Extinguisher Training

Many people have never used a fire extinguisher. Giving your employees training in how to correctly use a fire extinguisher, will increase their likelihood of being able to successfully tackle a fire in the event of an outbreak. Quick thinking and reactions to fires, can help reduce the damage caused to property and people.

Evacuation Practice

While some establishments, such as schools, carry out regular fire drills to ensure that the building can be evacuated in time, not all businesses do this. Having an evacuation practice means that people know what do to in an emergency. This training can be invaluable in the event of a fire.

Fire Safety Adviser Course

Our comprehensive courses are fully accredited and delivered by our qualified and experienced trainers. Our fire safety adviser course gives individuals a higher level of understanding and knowledge.

First Aid, Health & Safety Training

Health and safety covers a multitude of areas. From risk assessment training to moving and handling, your employees will benefit from the specific areas of training that impact their working day. Due to our tailor-made courses, we can design your health and safety training to cover the most relevant topics for your employees including categories of fire safety signages. Each industry has different areas of risk, and first aid health and safety training can help to reduce the risk points.

Who Needs Fire Safety Training

As an employer, you have to protect and ensure the safety of your employees. Under The Fire Precautions (Workplace) Regulations 1997, amended in 1999, you have a duty of care towards your employees. All employees will benefit from fire safety training. A fast response towards the outbreak of a fire can make a huge difference. People who have received training in how to use a fire extinguisher will be more likely to react correctly when needed. Fire training can also reduce the likelihood of fires occurring as it highlights risk areas and teaches best practices. Your fire marshal or warden will benefit from the extra training to support with the additional responsibility. Fire safety training is an investment in your building, employees, and business.
