For businesses in the UK it is a legal requirement to ensure that fire safety training has prepared staff fully for their individual roles. For many businesses this has presented a number of challenges.
United Kingdom, August 2010 - Many businesses in the UK are still struggling to come fully to terms with the fact that fire safety training for staff is now a legal requirement in the UK under the Fire Safety Order 2005. This places a range of legal requirements on businesses, with fire safety covering a multitude of important aspects that each needs to be covered. Although most businesses are now fully aware of the change in the law and the introduction of the FSO, it has proved difficult for many businesses to know who to turn to for fully reliable fire safety training and fire risk assessment. UK Fire Training is a nationwide fire safety training service which can provide a range of services which will enable UK businesses to be fully trained and prepared under the requirements of the Fire Safety Order.
One of the challenges facing a number of businesses is the fact that under the FSO it is often necessary to have a range of different fire safety training courses, for members of staff who may require different types, or different levels of fire safety training and experience. Most members of staff will be required to have a good understanding of both fire prevention as well as handling minor fires which will usually involve fire extinguisher training. At the same time there may be other members of staff who are appointed as fire marshals, and they will require a higher level of fire safety training. One of the requirements of the Fire Safety Order is that every business or building has a designated responsible person, and this member of staff, landlord or property owner will be required to undertake a higher level of fire safety training skill, including how to properly and effectively carry out a full and thorough fire safety assessment that is fully compliant with the law.
UK Fire Safety Training is the leading service provider for fire safety courses, as well as offering a range of services covering fire risk assessments. With 50 ex-Fire Service tutors training over 10,000 people every year and an ISO 9001:2000 Quality Management System, businesses can be confident that by enlisting the help of UK Fire Training they will not only be fully compliant with current fire safety legislation, but confident that in the event of a fire they really will be fully prepared.
