Fire Safety

Basic Fire Safety

All employees need sufficient fire training to prevent the outbreak of a workplace fire. 

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 applies to all workplaces and requires employers to provide adequate fire awareness training. That’s why ETD has developed its highly effective online Fire Safety Course for all workers. This training delves into the fire triangle, fire safety tips and information about who is in charge when a fire breaks out. 

All members of staff must understand these principles to keep everyone safe. ETD has designed this simple training to help you avoid workplace fires, which can destroy premises and lead to the devastating loss of jobs and revenue. In fact, fires cost businesses millions of pounds from loss of income and damage to property each year. Prevention is key to avoiding the destruction that comes with fire. ETD’s course will help you to ensure the safety of all employees, contractors and visitors.
