One of the best defences against a fire is well-trained staff. 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 to meet specific requirements.
For premises that hold a fire certificate, details of staff training may be specified. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states that employees should receive adequate fire safety training. A fire risk assessment will detail the exact training employers are obliged to provide by law.
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.
