Project Description

It Is Better To Be Safe Than Sorry

This training is designed in accordance with the legislative requirements of the Fire Service Act 1981 & 2003 plus the Safety Health and Welfare at Work Act of 2005.



The Safety Health and Welfare Act 2005 Act requires that “sufficient information, training and supervision is provided to ensure the safety of employees, and also that such instruction, training etc. must take account of any employees with specific needs, to ensure their protection against dangers that may affect them”.

In order to ensure compliance with fire safety and health & safety legislation, emergencies, including fire, should be planned and prepared for on an ongoing basis in the form of a Fire Emergency Plan. Fire Wardens are designated the responsibility of executing this plan in an emergency situation. We provide trainees with an understanding of fire safety and how that links to their individual role within their own organisation. 

On completion, trainees will have the knowledge and skills required to recognise and maintain a safe working environment. It will train staff to effectively manage an evacuation in the event of an emergency and to deal with an outbreak of fire in its early stages.
