With the introduction of the Regulatory Reform Act 2005 (RRO), more specifically the legislation concerning the Fire Order, companies are now required to implement personnel fire safety training regularly. The RRO – stipulates that the organization or company should conduct these training sessions for newly hired personnel immediately. In addition, the preexisting members of the company staff should undergo an annual training course with a licensed, competent instructor who is up to date with the legal/practical details of fire safety.
The role of the classes comprises of teaching the employees relevant skills and procedures with direct application in the event of a fire. FireCare provides companies with the aforementioned training and their proficiency in teaching the staff how to avert disasters has been proven time and time again.
The two types of fire safety training
It is necessary to point out that there are two levels of fire safety training, namely:
- Basic fire awareness
- Fire Warden and Fire Marshall training
While the former courses teach your employees the very basic safety and survival protocols in case a conflagration breaks out in the building, the latter constitute advanced training and the individual who completes them will be the designated responsible persons for the safety of their colleagues and the implementation of fire protocols.
The good news is that not all the employees of a company have to be trained as Fire Wardens or Fire Marshalls. In general, the number of staff members who require advanced fire safety training depends on the total number of people on the premises. To put it simply, you will normally have to designate reasonable amount of Fire Warden/Fire Marshall for your workers. However, additional factors including the propensity of work-related fire accidents, the dimensions of the building, the number of regular visitors, etc. should also be taken into account.
Basic fire awareness courses
The basic fire safety classes mainly teach your staff about the legislation covering the fire safety protocols, the potential result of a fire breaking out in the building, chemical substances that are generated by combustion, the factors that determine fires and the proficient methods of evacuating the premises. In addition to that, your employees will also learn about the best ways to react to a fire and the proper way to select an extinguisher. A test is utilized to evaluate the knowledge accumulated by the personnel at the end of the class.
Fire Marshall/Fire Warden courses
The employees who are designated to undertake the role of Fire Marshal or Fire Warden will need to complete a more advanced course that incorporates all the aforementioned training, but also a great deal more. Considering that it will be the job of these employees to provide assistance with the personnel evacuation, fire mitigation and ensuring the safety of critical staff members, their training will be considerably more complex.
Both the staff members who successfully complete the basic training and those who qualify as Fire Marshalls/Fire Wardens will receive a legal certification attesting their competence. The certificate is only awarded to those who successfully pass the final test that determines the level of understanding of fire safety protocols.
Retraining the personnel
Because after the training your personnel will not be confronted with fires on a daily basis, the knowledge as well as the skills accumulated during the training period will begin to fade. Therefore, in order to maintain competence in the field of fire safety, the training classes should be taken on an annual basis.
