Fire can be devastating for a business and some may never reopen after a major fire. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires employers to have a strategy to evacuate all occupants within a building. The legislation requires a risk-based approach to fire safety in community industrial and business premises, and requires the responsible person (usually the employer or occupier) to carry out a fire risk assessment an implement appropriate fire precautionary and protective measures. Businesses are recognising the importance of having fully trained fire wardens as part of their emergency evacuation strategy.
The course aims to provide delegates with suitable and sufficient information to assist them act proactively in identifying fire hazards and dangers before a fire occurs, and to assist in the emergency evacuation of occupants from buildings if it becomes necessary.
