Fire safety training is not just a legal requirement for all businesses in the UK – it is also extremely important in saving lives and protecting a business from the damage of a fire. All staff within a business should be well informed on how to deal with and reduce fire risks, while exercising knowledge of how to evacuate a building safely in the event of a fire.

At RES Fire Protection Engineers, we offer detailed and informative fire and safety training for all employees within your business. Our courses investigate the potential causes of a fire, how fire behaves and spreads to other areas of a building, and what you can do to prevent this from happening. We talk delegates through important steps they must take if a fire breaks out, how to use fire extinguishers and other emergency evacuation procedures. All courses are designed to be engaging, interactive and informative.

The Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order 2005 states that all staff should receive a course in basic fire safety training and attend regular refresher sessions. We have fire safety training courses that can be provided at your business premises for your convenience. We can also schedule courses to take place when annual servicing of your fire extinguishers is required.

We offer various safety training courses, including:

Hands-on practical extinguisher training

We provide basic training on how to use an appropriate fire extinguisher in your premises. In this course, delegates will be provided with an explanation on how each piece of equipment works. Training sessions last no more than 30 minutes, with capacity for up to 20 people per course.

Pricing:  £175 + VAT per course

Fire awareness training

Our comprehensive fire awareness training course lasts up to 2 hours and covers the RRFSO 2005, the law, duty of care and fire risk assessment, causes of a fire, what to do when discovering a fire, the Fire Triangle, fire safety checks and how to carry them out, use of fire extinguishers, British and European Standard fire safety signage legislation and fire prevention. There will also be an opportunity for delegates to ask our trainers any questions they may have.      

The course is followed by a live practical portable extinguishers training session to give delegates some experience. Suitable clothing should be worn.

Pricing: £360 + VAT per course.

This course gives delegates practical and engaging fire extinguisher training, along with additional information on how extinguisher use relates to your company’s fire marshalling procedures.
