FIRE EXTINGUISHER TRAINING
Midland Fire can assist you in providing all of your training needs, from a basic Fire Drill and Route Plan, to a Hands-on Fire Extinguisher Appliance Training Course. We can also co-ordinate a Fire Warden and Fire Marshall training course, as well as various First Aid courses to suit your budget and needs. All of the courses we offer, can be completed on site at your establishment.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 came into force on the 1st October 2006 - it states that; "The responsible person, must ensure that their employees are provided with adequate safety training — either at the time when they are first employed; or on their being exposed to new or increased risks because of their being transferred or given a change of responsibilities, within the responsible person’s undertaking. The introduction of new work equipment into, or a change, respecting work equipment already in use within, the responsible person’s undertaking; the introduction of new technology into the responsible person’s undertaking; or the introduction of a new system of work into, or a change respecting a system of work already in use within, the responsible person’s undertaking. This is essential to enable you and your staff to know how and when to use fire equipment".
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Persons who have had fire awareness or fire warden training, but without any practical experience.
Persons who may be required to use fire extinguishers at work.
WHAT DOES THE COURSE COVER?
The course consists of an in-depth briefing on fire precautions regulations and legislation, chemistry of fire and how it spreads, types and classifications of fire, common causes of fire, hazard spotting and hazard reduction, and fire extinguisher recognition.
LIVE FIRE TRAINING USING VARIOUS TYPES OF FIRE EXTINGUISHERS
Our fully qualified service engineers will demonstrate how to use a fire extinguisher in the event of a real emergency and they will invite you and your staff to have a go and get hands-on experience by setting off fire extinguishers in order to see how the appliances perform. There is nothing like practical experience to reduce the fear of dealing with fire.
We always try to bring some equipment along with us for the purposes of demonstration but this is strictly subject to availability and cannot be guaranteed, if we do not have any to bring, we can utilise your existing equipment and refill upon completion.
HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN ATTEND THE SESSION?
To maintain the best levels of focus on the training event we prefer to restrict training sessions to groups of no more than ten people. If you have more than ten people we are still able to accommodate you by having more than one training session.
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Following the practical demonstration, your staff will be invited to ask questions about any elements of the training.
Upon completion Midland fire will issue you with a Certificate of Fire Training, including the names of the atendees.
Our Fire Warden and Fire Marshal Training courses are held periodically throughout the year and can be standalone or shared courses.
The Fire Warden Course Identifies and allows the candidates to handle and use a live fire extinguisher. The candidates receive more in-depth knowledge regarding the risks of fire and its outcome, if left unchecked.
The course material contains a Fire Warden checklist which can be easily adapted to the workplace and act as a memory aid for checks which should be regularly carried out.
Course materials include a workbook with detailed information. Each candidate receives a “Fire Warden” High Visibility Vest.
