Delivery method



Around 20,000 small fires occur in workplaces across the UK each year. It is important that staff know what to do in the event of a fire - and that includes knowing how to use fire extinguishers. Face-to-face training gives staff the confidence to act quickly and safely in an emergency situation.

Our two-hour course is led by experienced fire and safety professionals. By the end of the session, delegates will have the confidence to successfully extinguish a small fire in the workplace. They’ll get a chance to operate a fire extinguisher themselves, gain necessary knowledge about fire chemistry, learn the different fire classifications and get to grips with the different types of fire extinguisher.
