Fire Awareness Training
The Nature of Fire Fire Signage Fire Hazards Emergency Procedure Portable Fire Extinguishers To begin, we cover the nature of fire – how it works, and the different ways in which it can spread; we also cover smoke and the dangers it poses. This introduction is important for users so they understand what behaviour to expect from fire and smoke. It will help in the process of keeping the workplace safe. Health and safety signs are used to communicate important messages to prevent injury or give instructions in an emergency. This section identifies the different types of signs you may see in the workplace; we define what they look like, what they mean, and our Traffic Light System provides a simple way to remember the different types. In this section, we discuss the potential fire hazards that can arise in the workplace – covering ignition sources, flammables and combustibles. We also discuss certain working practices that need to be implemented to avoid creating fire hazards. This section explains what action to take in the event of an emergency. This step-by-step process includes raising the alarm, calling emergency services, and an evacuation procedure. We also explain what you should do if you’re unable to escape in an emergency, including a demonstration of the “Stop, Drop & Roll” technique. To conclude our programme, this section teaches users about when it’s safe to fight a fire, and when it’s NOT. We provide demonstrations on how to use the five common types of fire extinguisher, as well as fire blankets. Users learn about the different “Classes of Fire”, and which extinguisher to use on each class.
