Training is important to make sure all the risk assessments and plans that have been made by a business will then be put into force by the employees in an emergency.

Training needs to be given to nominated people to act as fire wardens and fire marshals.  These people will be responsible for checking fire safety compliance and getting people safely out of a building in the event of a fire. How many nominated people are required will depend on the risk assessments carried out, but allowances will need to be made to always have enough people trained to ensure that holiday or sickness absence, does not leave a business with no cover in the event of an emergency.

Having regular training within the general workforce is also a good idea, to make sure everyone fully understand fire safety.  They will learn things like evacuation, how the alarms work, fire prevention and what to do in the event of a fire.

It’s a necessary to have regular fire evacuation drills to ensure everyone can exit the building safely and quickly.

Ensuring staff have a basic understanding of fire awareness can make sure that in the event of a fire emergency, they know exactly how to get out of the building safely and we can reduce any possible risk.
