Basic Fire Safety Course
The purpose of the Basic Fire Safety Course is to develop the fire awareness of learners, to allow them to contribute to the reduction in fires and to reduce the impact of fires if they occur.
Who Should Take This Basic Fire Safety Course?
There are regulations in England and Wales which require employers, occupiers, landlords, owners of business or non-domestic premises, known as the ‘responsible person’, must by law, provide staff with the necessary information and training on Basic Fire Safety.
However, as with all Health & Safety legislation, the responsibility does not stop with the employer. Case studies reveal that should an employee cause a fire to start through lack of attention, horseplay or carelessness then they may be committing a criminal act under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
Therefore, it is reasonable to expect that an employee takes responsibility for attending and/or obtaining a course on Basic Fire Safety training. Failing this duty prevents the employer from being able to carry out their legal duties.
