Online Fire Safety Training

The online interactive course

Current legislation, The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, applies to all workplaces regardless of the number of employees and requires employers to provide adequate training in fire awareness for all members of their staff.

Module 5 – What to do if a fire occurs
