For staff members to gain full benefit from training we ensure that the course is suited to their relevant job role. Such an example would be the fire extinguisher course which would be ideal for any staff members who may be expected to tackle small fires using portable extinguishers. On hiring new employees it is critical that their existing fire knowledge is assessed. This may not always be possible and thus the utilisation of our dedicated instructors is essential. Some businesses will also need to appoint Fire Marshalls as part of their procedures, these will require additional training in order that they can both understand their role and carry out their duties. Our courses will provide the full knowledge necessary for these roles pertaining to effective evacuation and methods of fire prevention.
