Our mission is to help as many people as we can to understand fire and the potential risks and hazards attached to it. We believe everyone should have at least a basic understanding of fire safety because you just never know when it might come in handy.

There are certain regulations in place that mean certain roles and responsibilities must be allocated to certain people so that if there was a fire, there would be some reasonable action taken, promptly. 

We undertake most of our fire safety training in person because we see the best results doing it this way. Due to the serious nature of the topic, we want to make sure every participant is engaged and taking in what we’re saying. There’s a lot of information to consider but there’s also a lot at stake if a fire was to break out.

Fire Safety Training Barnsley- Course Content

Introduction – As the name suggests, the introduction will ease you into the course with information about who we are, what we are here to do and all the headings of the course ahead. We’ll also emphasise the importance of fire safety training. 

Understanding Fire – This section goes into detail about the different types and classes of fire as well as how to identify each one through some distinct differences. This is very useful to know because if you know what you’re looking at, you’ll know how to deal with it more quickly.

Fire Risk Assessments – Fire risk assessments are a legal requirement for all businesses and organisations so including a section about them in our training was paramount. It’s one of our specialist areas so you’ll get to know what they are, why they’re needed and how we go about doing them.

Evacuation Routes – You need to know where all the evacuation routes are in your building and where they’re likely to be in other buildings.

Emergency Plans – One of the last parts of our fire safety training in Barnsley is to do with emergency plans. What does the plan look like when a fire breaks out and what actions should you take? This is where you know your roles and responsibilities when it comes to getting out of a building safely.

Fire Warden Training Barnsley - Key Points

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 also states that a fire warden or fire marshal is a legal requirement for all buildings with more than five regular occupants.

This therefore means that training is required for these people which is something we do for many of our clients. The fire warden will carry out a set of key roles and responsibilities when a fire breaks out to ensure there is order and processes to get people into a safe position, away from the fire.

Our training will provide you with knowledge and information to give you confidence in the role. We’ll also provide demonstrations and role place scenarios to give you ‘real-life’ experience. In essence, our fire warden/marshal training will entail learning about and being tested on; fire legislation, fire risk assessments, emergency plans, use of fire equipment, the role of a fire warden and much more.
