H&S-FS Awareness Group Course Overview
This half-day Fire Safety Awareness course provides learners with an understanding of the risk of fires to the business, the reasons for following good fire safety precautions and the actions in the event of a fire.
The potential devasting impact of fire to a business in terms of loss of life, damage to property, the impact on the environment and the loss of business is massive. However, it is believed that most fires are preventable when everyone follows good housekeeping.
The course is designed for all employees as an introduction to fire awareness and is an excellent part of an induction program.
H&S-FS Awareness Syllabus
A range of topics are covered including:
- Common causes of fire
- How fire behaves
- A brief overview of legislation
- Preventing fires
- Awareness of fire extinguishers
- Actions in a fire
- Emergency evacuation procedures
The course is facilitated through group and class discussion to involve all candidates and to ensure all candidates are grasping the board topics ready for the assessment.
Candidates can wear clothing that they feel comfortable to support their learning and take part in group discussions with other candidates.
The course includes a Fire Safety handbook produced by Nuco Training to support the course.
The course includes interactive group discussion which is monitored by the tutor and a written multi-choice question paper at the end of the course.
Successful candidates will be issued with an Ofqual regulated Level 1 Fire Safety Awareness by the awarding body First Aid Awards (FAA).
The qualification does not expire.
There are no barriers to undertaking training. If candidates have any physical or learning needs for the group work or for the assessment, this should be notified as part of the booking.
We can deliver the training at your venue which has a suitable training room or we can support you in arranging a suitable external venue. Training at your venue can save you costs but at the same time risk your staff being distracted by day to day concerns that arise, which may not be suitable as they approach the assessment.
Locations will require:
- Room big enough to sit 16 candidates to sit in a horseshoe
- Tables for group work and assessment at the end of the session
- Projector and screen with computer connection, however, we can provide a projector with laptop
While we will deliver our courses across the country, we focus on supporting local businesses in south Wales from Cardigan to Haverfordwest, Carmarthen, Swansea, Cardiff and Newport.
The course will have one planned break. No refreshments are included when delivered at one of your venues, but tea and coffee will be included when delivered at a venue arranged by ourselves.
An individual can undertake the course from 14, however they cannot assume responsibility until they reach the age of 16, and then it is the employer's responsibility to ensure that the individual is suitable for the role.
If you have any additional questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
Group price for 6 is £285.00* with extra candidates £12 per person to the maximum number.
