Fire safety training is one of the most important health and safety programs in the workplace. We can assist with training for your staff.
Fire is a major hazard in the workplace and ensuring your staff know what to do in the event of a fire is very important. Our fire safety online training courses will equip your staff with the right level of information to allow them to act in a manner that will minimise the risk of being injured should a fire occur. Our training also meets current legislative requirements.

Do I need to offer fire safety training to all my employees?
Yes, you are required by law to ensure that your employees are provided with adequate fire safety awareness training to allow them to understand fire risks in the workplace. This includes what they should do if there is a fire in the workplace, and how they can control fire hazards inherent in what they do.
You need to supply this information when an employee is first recruited and when there are new or increased risks, for example:
- A job change or new responsibilities
- New or changed work equipment
- New technology
- New or changed systems of work
You’ll also need to train others who will have a more detailed role in relation to fire safety responsibilities. These individuals are known as fire marshals or fire wardens. One of their key roles will be to assist in the safe evacuation of staff from the building in the event of a fire. The number of fire marshals/wardens you need will depend on the number of employees and the complexity of your activities. Your fire risk assessment should detail these arrangements.
What does the fire safety training consist of?
Fire Safety Awareness Training (All Employees)
This fire safety awareness training will teach your employees what they need to know about fire safety risks in the workplace and the controls in place to keep them safe. There are five main course modules:
- The chemistry of a fire and how it can start
- The most common causes of fires and how to prevent them
- Basic safety features in buildings
- Introduction to fire extinguishers and their use
- What to do in the event of a fire
Fire Extinguisher Training
Fire extinguisher training is an important part of fire safety. Our optional extension courses help you learn everything you need to know about the different types of fire extinguisher and how to use them safely and effectively. This course teaches you:
- Which type of fire extinguisher to use for each type of fire
- How to properly set up a fire extinguisher
- How to effectively use a fire extinguisher without risk
Fire Marshal/Warden Training (Only for nominated employees)
The fire marshal/warden training is a more in-depth training course than the fire safety awareness training course. It allows the employer to demonstrate that they have trained staff to assist them in preventing fires, assisting with evacuation from the building and where required fighting fires with the use of fire extinguishers.
This training follows on from the fire safety awareness training and therefore the additional modules are listed below:
- Fire Statistics
- Current Fire Safety Legislation
- Fire Risk Assessment
- Preventative Measures
- Safety Features within Buildings
- Role of the Fire Marshal/Warden
- Action on Fire Discovery
- Fire Drills & Evacuation
