What's it about?

This  fire risk assessment is ideally suited to any responsible person in charge of a building including directors, managers, supervisors, landlords and letting agents as well as members of the security industry who wish to have a better understanding and working knowledge of current legislation.

Current Fire Legislation puts the onus on employers as the responsible person to assess and respond to fire safety risks and this qualification will help organisations to meet their responsibilities under this legislation by providing training in how to conduct a fire risk assessment in a low- or normal-risk premises, how to organise and implement a fire risk assessment programme or contribute to an existing programme, how to participate in the identification of specific fire safety training needs through fire risk assessment and assisting employers in meeting legal requirements and promote improved standards of fire safety in their workplace

Where will I learn?

Learn in a realistic training environment

Fires can occur almost anywhere within the workplace, so, why not learn in a realistic environment which includes a staff room with kitchenette and office environment; no more having to imagine a fictitious setting!

Whether discussing potential risks or taking part in a scenario with smoke and simulated fire, the realistic nature of the environment aides the learning process as well as making for more active and engaging training.

Where will I learn?

Learn using modern and sophisticated equipment

At The Practical Training Hub, it isn’t just the venue that’s cutting edge. A selection of simulated injures, technology and fire rigs as well as actors can be utilised to create an even more practical, engaging and beneficial training session.

Learning about fire and especially how to put it out without actually having the opportunity to do it is like learning to surf using online videos, you might understand the theory, however, you can’t understand the ‘feel’ of what is required.
