Fire safety is a crucial concern for any facilities or compliance manager or business owner. Paying attention to fire safety prevents damage to your property, prevents personal injuries, and ensures compliance with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order of 2005.
As an employer, building owner, or property manager, you may be regarded by the regulatory authority as a “responsible person” and tasked with the responsibility to ensure fire safety in a facility.
However, a responsible person requires cooperation from all staff members to carry out their responsibilities. Staff members have to receive training on:
- The legal aspects behind fire safety
- The physics behind a fire (or “fire triangle”)
- Equipment training, especially on fire extinguishers and the alarm system
KJ Fire Safety offers extensive fire training to facility staff members. We can help you train your staff to understand the critical roles they have to fulfil in fire safety.
Why Train Your Staff How to Use Your Fire Alarm System?
Some organisations are required by the legislature to provide staff members with training on fire alarm systems and other fire safety measures. The most prominent regulation that governs fire safety in the workplace is the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order of 2005.
Regulatory training doesn’t only pertain to alarm system use, but also general safety, evacuation procedures, and hazard reporting. According to these regulations, staff should receive training after employment and every time they are exposed to new risks in the facility.
In addition to regulatory requirements, staff should also be trained to ensure congruency and efficiency whenever there is an emergency. For example, an employee that doesn’t understand the evacuation process can get in the way of others or endanger themselves.
Fire training establishes a safety culture that promotes prompt action that can save lives, prevent injuries, and mitigate the risk of property damage.
Important Roles in Fire Safety
In addition to staff training, there are several important steps you can take to ensure optimal fire safety. These include:
- Carrying out routine fire risk assessments
- Having a suitable fire safety system installed
- Carrying out routine service and maintenance on your fire system
If you don’t have extensive experience or knowledge on fire safety, it is worth outsourcing these roles to a fire safety specialist. KJ Fire Safety can deliver all these functions to ensure that your facility is safe from fire damage.
We provide staff training that meets all regulatory requirements, and we go to great lengths to ensure that every member of your team understands the safety equipment and knows exactly what to do in the case of an emergency.
