Periodic fire training in the UK & Ireland.

A business must ensure that all employees are provided with fire safety training applicable to the needs of the business. The fire service as a matter of course do inspect business premises to ensure that the “responsible person” has carried out a fire risk assessment and acted upon any issues raised impacting on safety .

Fire safety training undertaken as a matter of course in a business includes:

  • Induction training for new employees and where fire risks change as a result of business changes

  • Periodic refresher training for all employees and “responsible persons”

  • Fire safety training covering specific areas such as fire risk assessment, fire extinguisher use and the role office wardens.

This ongoing training should be documented so that the business can show that it has met the legal obligations as laid down by the authorities. If you would like more information on the periodic fire training provided DPD Fire & Safety please contact us today
