Fire Safety Awareness
Recently the two directors of TwoLet Properties Management attended the Fire Safety Business seminar at the Fire Station in Standground, Peterborough. “We like to keep ourselves up-to-date on all regulations and legislations relating to buildings and properties. We found the fire safety training very informative and we were able to apply the knowledge we gained that day”, said Ronna. The course raises awareness of the dangers associated with fire and the practical steps that can be taken to minimise and control the risks that fire presents.
Knowledge on fire safety is very important, as failure to comply with government fire safety regulations could potentially lead to prosecution, fines or legal claims. Fire safety training is therefore compulsory for all organisations.
The seminar covers a wide range of subjects. This include:
- Explanation of the Fire Safety Order
- Threat of fire in a workplace and behaviour of fire
- Applicable legislation
- Risk assessment
- Fire prevention and awareness
- How to minimise the effect of fire
- The importance of fire doors
- Signage and fire exits
- Key responsibilities of the individual
The training equips the directors with a better understanding of their responsibilities under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (FSO) and learning the process of conducting a fire risk assessment in a commercial building.
