Fire safety is an important topic to understand, as fire can cause extensive damage and even loss of life. In order for a fire to ignite, it needs three elements: oxygen, fuel and heat. Once a fire starts, it can be extinguished by removing one of these elements. For instance, covering a fire with a fire blanket removes the oxygen supply, therefore putting the fire out. It is important to be familiar with fire safety procedures in case of an emergency. Fire safety training can help individuals to understand how to prevent fires from starting, and what to do if a fire does occur. By being prepared, individuals can help to keep themselves and others safe from the dangers of fire.

Fire Safety Training as an Employer in Newport

Fire safety training is an essential part of UK fire safety legislation. Anyone who has some control over premises must take reasonable steps to reduce the likelihood of fire and make sure people can safely escape if there is a fire. The regulations apply to virtually all non-domestic premises in the United Kingdom; in England and Wales the communal areas (common parts) of blocks of flats, are also included.

If you are an employer or have control over the premises or activities that take place on the premises, then you have responsibilities under fire safety legislation. It is your duty to ensure the safety of the people in the premises. Fire safety training will help you to understand your responsibilities and how to reduce the risk of fire. It will also give you the skills and knowledge you need to safely evacuate people from the premises in the event of a fire.
