Why is fire safety training in the workplace important?
Fire awareness and understanding practical fire safety is a life skill. Being able to recognise fire hazards, deal with emergency scenarios and act in a way that reduces danger and risk can save lives.
Fire safety training is an important investment that will improve safety and preparedness in the workplace. As an employer, you may feel there are more pressing issues and worthwhile outlays than fire safety training courses but the value of ensuring your staff are confident and prepared to act in an emergency doesn’t have a monetary figure. Furthermore, employers have a legal duty under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Reform 2005 to provide staff with relevant fire safety training.
Fire safety training in the workplace is important for multiple reasons and by ensuring your employees receive in-depth and honest fire safety training, you can improve multiple aspects of your business and employee welfare.
