Who should take this Fire Extinguisher Awareness course?

This course is suitable for anyone who wishes to increase their awareness on the difference between fire extinguishers, their correct use and which type of fire they should be used on. It is also suitable for those learners who are qualified and wish to refreshing their theoretical knowledge, and for learners who wish to combine this online course with practical fire extinguisher training.

In the workplace, it is the employer’s legal responsibility to provide Fire Safety training to all staff at any level: from managers to employees of all departments, both full-time and part-time, as well as contractors. If an organisation has one or more employees or volunteers working in the business, there is a moral and legal duty for the employer to provide fire safety training. Moreover, the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states that employees should receive adequate fire safety training; to ensure that staff remain familiar with emergency procedures, refresher training should be carried out annually and can be achieved by completing this course.

Although Fire Extinguisher Awareness can benefit anybody in the workplace, some of the positions that require more regular fire safety training include:

  • Department heads
  • Fire marshals or fire wardens
  • Firefighting teams in large workplaces
  • Floor supervisors
  • Central control room staff
  • Security staff (including night security patrols)
  • Attendants
