Fire Safety Services
Good fire safety management not only helps avoid fires in the first place but also makes sure that no individual is put in danger.
On average, there are approximately 350 fire emergencies in businesses every week. Of these 70% are accidental and the other 30% were deliberate (arson). The main cause of business fires is faulty appliances and leads, closely followed by misuse of equipment.
If your premises have been designed and built in line with modern building regulations (and are being used in line with those regulations), your structural fire precautions should be acceptable. You will still need to carry out a fire risk assessment and make sure that you keep up all fire precautions and maintenance routines.
We offer a full range of services to help you manage risks around fire. They include:
• Fire Risk Assessments
• Practical Fire Extinguisher Training
• Fire Warden Training – Face to Face
• Fire Awareness Training – Face to Face
• Fire Warden Training – Online
• Fire Awareness Training – Online
• Fire Logbook documentation
• Emergency Planning
An essential part of Health & Safety management is the delivery of sensible, to the point, professional training to those that require it. Unfortunately, this aspect of risk management is often overlooked and ignored.
Suitable and sufficient training is a legal requirement, and the level of training will differ depending upon what your Company does, and what levels of risk are involved.
We develop and deliver both Face to Face training and e-learning courses. Please click here to explore our 40+ e-learning courses.
Face to Face Training
We run the Institution of Occupational Safety & Health Courses:
- IOSH Managing Safely (four day course) &
- IOSH Working Safely. (one day course)
We also develop client specific IOSH tailored courses and work with IOSH to get such courses officially accredited.
These Courses are run at a number of locations around the UK and are recognised by a number of interested third parties, such as enforcing bodies, insurance companies and clients. All Courses are delivered by our team of highly and experienced Consultants.
We also deliver a number of shorter face to face Courses designed around client specific needs and requests. Examples of these include but are not limited to:
- Fire Safety
- Manual Handling
- Asbestos Management
