Employers have always been required to ensure employees are aware of Fire Precautions at their place of work. OHeap offers a choice of training courses, tailored to meet the majority of our customers’ needs. We also offer bespoke courses, designed in conjunction with a customer to meet specific requirements. Examples include specialist training in Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations (1996) and Fire Precautions (Work Place) Regulations (1997).
All our courses count towards CPD and may be required as part of a Fire Risk Assessment.
For premises that hold a Fire Certificate, details of staff training may be specified. Staff training may also be required under the Fire Precautions (Work Place) Regulations (1997, amended 1999). A Fire Risk Assessment will detail the exact training employers are obliged to provide by law.
In England and Wales, if you’re an employer, owner, landlord or occupier of business or other non-domestic premises, you’re responsible for fire safety and are known as the ‘responsible person’. (The rules are different in Scotland and Northern Ireland – please ring us for specific advice).
You could get fined and/or go to prison if you don’t follow fire safety regulations. Minor penalties can be up to £5,000. Major penalties can have unlimited fines and up to 2 years in prison.
If you need advice on your training responsibilities then please give us a call.
