E-Learning: Fire Safety Basics

Course Overview

As one of nature’s most devastating elements, fire can consume indiscriminately, with enough ferocity to destroy property and take lives.

The best defence against such a force is to prevent fires from starting in the first place. This is only possible if we can understand the hazards and circumstances that lead to fire, and manage them appropriately.

But what if the worst does happen? Knowing how to respond in the event of a fire is vital in safeguarding your own safety, as well as your colleagues. Would you know what to do if the fire alarm sounded in your workplace right now?

This course addresses the importance of fire safety and will help you recognise and reduce workplace fire hazards.

We’ll explore the steps to follow if a fire breaks out, and look at some of the equipment required under fire regulations.
