Basic Fire Safety Awareness: what is covered?

This course covers a range of different fire safety elements.

A general introduction gives students the chance to broadly understand the nature of fire and why fire safety is important.

You’ll learn about what is needed for fire to take hold, the different types of fire that can arise in workplace settings, and the key conditions that enable fires to spread.

You’ll also learn about the dangers of smoke inhalation.

The course also goes into detail about how to spot and reduce fire risks and fire hazards in the workplace, as well as best practices around evacuation routes, fire exits and what to do in the event of a fire.

You’ll also learn about effective health and safety signs in professional environments.

Finally, the course introduces you to fire extinguishers and the five most common types of extinguisher found in the workplace.

You’ll see demonstrations of each of the extinguishers and begin to understand when it is safe – and, crucially, when it is not safe – to use them to tackle ongoing fires.

The positive impact of fire blankets will also be covered.
