The course includes discussion and sessions about fire drills, safety checks and also hazard spotting.

Will my fire marshals be qualified?

The managers of a workplace must have fire evacuation plans for all times the building is occupied. They are also need a sufficient number of trained persons to implement the plan. Persons working as fire marshals must be competent and be able to perform the role. This means you should select fire marshals carefully, since they will need to give clear instructions in an emergency.

The law also requires fire trainers to have suitable experience, knowledge and expertise to teach fire safety. Our tutors have all worked for the fire service safety partnership and provide many fire training courses in Kent. We can provide excellent references from other clients.

Fire training course post -Who needs fire training in care homes?

Care home fire training

Because residential care homes are a high fire risk, this post will look at care home fire training. Since London Fire Brigade reported ten care home fires each week, we have had many calls from managers.

Care homes care for  vulnerable persons, therefore must have good fire plans and correct staff fire training. Common questions to us include:

  • So, how often should our fire training course be?
  • Who should be trained and also what should the training include?
  • Do we need to have live fire extinguisher training and also do you provide it?

The simple answer is fire training is based on risk? If the building is a high risk building, therefore the training should be more often than other workplaces. If a plan involves moving a high number of elderly persons more not less people will put the plan in place. Finally, there is no requirement for live fire training but some hands on fire extinguisher training may be useful to staff.

Care homes use delayed evacuation, progressive horizontal evacuation, vertical evacuation and sometimes full evacuation of occupants. With a large number of persons in a care home, all staff will have a role in the evacuation plan.

Most care homes have annual fire training and also regular fire drills. It is also important for different training for early and late shifts. Since there are many staff on in the day and only a small number at the night, staff will need different procedures.

Fire safety training post – How frequently should staff receive fire training?

Fire safety training

Government guidance does not detail the frequency  of fire safety training, refresher training or fire drills.

The frequency of fire training will depend on the level of risk in a workplace. In a building with high risk, training should occur more often than premises which are low risk. For example, a large building with dangerous chemicals and many staff would have more complex plans and training than a single storey building with ten employees.

A good fire risk assessor will be able to provide guidance on how often staff have fire training. For example:

  • A large care home may have annual fire training.
  • A high risk chemical plant should have at least annual training.
  • A small building and low staff numbers could have fire training every two or three years.

So what should an organisations staff fire training cover? Government guidance booklets provide good advice and recommend that the fire emergency plan should be covered.

This will include:

  • Action on discovery of a fire.
  • Action on hearing the fire alarm.
  • Arrangements for calling the fire brigade.
  • Fire fighting equipment provided.
  • Evacuation plans including those particularly at risk.
    • Disabled fire procedures.
    • Procedures for those working in remote areas.
    • Procedures for persons working alone.
    • Plans out of office hours.
    • Regular hour fire procedures.
  • Location of escape routes.
  • Persons with specific responsibilities in the fire evacuation plan
  • Location of assembly points.
  • Frequency of training.

General staff fire training

We provide accredited fire safety courses and these can be provided at your workplace or at one of our venues. We also run open courses in London and you can send staff for basic fire safety training.

Each attendee will receive a certificate of attendance and online fire safety booklet links. For details of this course go to our General staff fire training page.
