Care home fire training
Proper care home fire training together with fire drills will help keep persons safe in the event of a fire. It is essential that staff know what to do and also start fire plans immediately.
Fire training for care home staff needs to match the risk and circumstances in their building. In this article we look at the various options for managers when selecting fire training.
General fire marshal training is not suitable for care home staff. Most fire marshal courses promote general evacuation and not delayed and progressive evacuation which is employed in most care homes.
In house care home fire training is possibly one of the best options since this can include your care home plans. Our care home fire training is an approved course and is based on government and fire service advice. It is also includes some British Standards advice. Furthermore, it can include fire drills to support any classroom training. Finally, this course can include live fire extinguisher training too!
Online care home training should be selected carefully. Only pick online training that is based on UK government guidance. Fire training must mirror what happens in the workplace and should not just be a tick box exercise! Remember, the fire service may check the type of fire training and its content.
Site specific online care home fire training is a new and innovative idea. This type of training is web based and allows staff to complete an online course. The online course is based on individual care homes and includes their procedures, risk spotting and also safety checks in the staffs care home. This option sounds expensive but as many staff from that home can use the training course for the same fee and therefore can be one of the cheaper options overall.
