Hot topic: Fire Safety in the workplace

fire-blogLast month was Fire Safety Door week, a campaign aimed to engage and educate commercial, public and multiple occupancy building owners on the critical role of fire doors.

Fire doors offer vital protection and can make a real difference to the impact of a fire. It is vital for every business to have a fire procedure in place, to check fire doors/exits regularly and to educate your staff on these safety procedures. Fire doors are often the first line of defence in a fire and their correct specification, maintenance and management can be the difference between life and death for building occupants. However, they remain a significant area of neglect, propped open, damaged and badly maintained.

It is vital for every business to have a fire procedure in place, maintaining emergency exits and to make staff are aware of what to do in the event of a fire. Here at WorkRite we offer a range of Fire safety training and E-learning courses to prepare & educate your staff should a fire occur.

Our fire safety awareness course will offer simple but useful guidance for office employees so that when they are faced with a possible fire hazard, they will be able to take appropriate action.

It also enables them to participate effectively in measures to reduce, if not eliminate, the risks to which they might be exposed.

With topics such as Fire warden training, Evacuation chair training and Fire Safety awareness (Fire safety awareness available as both face to face or an E-learning course - FireRite), WorkRite have got your fire emergency staff training needs covered!
