Fire Safety Course FAQ
What is Fire Safety?
Fire safety information saves lives. It’s as simple as that. Fire safety refers to precautions that are taken to prevent or reduce the likelihood of a fire that may result in injury, property damage or even death. It prepares people to alert those in a structure about the presence of a fire in the event one occurs and better enables those threatened by a fire to survive, or to reduce the damage caused by a fire.
Is there a need for fire safety training?
Yes, fire safety training is important, not only because it is mandated by governments for schools and offices, but also because the training will make them better prepared in case the worst happens. Fires are unpredictable at best, with over 60% being caused by accidents.
Why go online for Fire Safety Training?
Occupational Health & Safety Training is a benefit to all companies but at times it is also legislated. Training on-line will cut training costs, minimize time lost, and reduce the cost of training by having your money spent on actual training (no travel costs). Companies, through Administrative Control, can track training, create reports, have access to employees training records and all employees receive the same high standard of training.
Who needs a Fire Safety training course?
Every business needs to have a structured approach towards Fire Safety. This is much more than placing fire extinguishers and performing an annual fire drill. The online Fire Safety Training course should be taken by every employee to mitigate the effects of either a minor or a catastrophic fire.
What is a Fire Safety Plan?
A Fire Safety Plan is an internal system established by employers to prevent and respond to man- made and natural emergencies. All employees should be fully trained in Fire Safety to ensure that all employees are able to defend themselves against the hazards of fires.
