Fire Awareness

There were over 11,000 accidental non-residential fires attended by the Fire and Rescue services in England during 2018/19, with fire accidents being responsible for 1 in every 12 workplace deaths in that year – consistent with recent trends.

Fire Training

By law, fire awareness training must be given to all employees – regardless of organisation size. Following fire safety training, all records should be retained by the organisation with training refreshed periodically. This is a mandatory requirement under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRFSO).

Fire Awareness Training

Alongside a frequent and thorough fire risk assessment, fire awareness training for all employees will ensure that each individual becomes fully aware of their personal and collective responsibilities in regards to preventing fire accidents from occurring.
