Fire Safety Training Overview
Heat, fuel and oxygen are required to produce combustion which is the process of burning. This is often referred to as the fire triangle. Normally if one of the points of the triangle is removed, combustion will stop. For example, smothering a fire with a non-combustible material such as a fire blanket or foam from an extinguisher, limits or cuts off the supply of oxygen. Smothering in ineffective on substances such as wood where the fire may be deeply seated. By ensuring that you have fire safety awareness training under your belt through this online course you will be sure to have the awareness needed to identify and make assessments of risks.
Why Do You Need Fire Safety Training?
Statistics from the Department of Fire and Emergency Services and from fire prevention agencies around the world tell us that when there is a fire, it can spread rapidly. In fact, you typically will have under five minutes to get out of the building if a fire takes place. Small fires, even in a residence, can spread very rapidly. In a business or factory, with many substances that may have potential danger to life of their own accord, a fire can spread far more rapidly.
When or if a fire takes place at your business, do you know how to react? Does your business have a fire safety plan so that everyone knows what to do and where to go in the event of an emergency? Low rise buildings may be very large, spread out over a large area. When a fire breaks out, making sure that everyone knows the nearest exit and how to respond to the fire on an individual and a group basis will make the difference between saving lives and property and suffering untold damage.
It is a common myth that low rise buildings don’t offer the same kinds of danger that might be faced elsewhere. In fact, the most common place for injury and loss of life is in a low rise building because low-rise fires are often underestimated as a cause of death. In many cases, when a low-rise fire breaks out, the employees do not know what to do, where to go and how or if to attack the fire. They may not even know the closest exit through which to escape from the danger.
Fire safety training will help to ensure that your company and your employees are as safe as it is possible to make them. Fire prevention and fire response are two things that every business needs to know. Training your employees in the proper way to respond to a fire will help to mitigate the loss and maximize their chances of responding correctly by planning in advance for a fire emergency.
Employees will learn more about:
- Preventing a fire from taking place
- Detection of a fire
- Extinguishing a fire
- Evacuation procedures to get employees and visitors out of the building safely
These are aspects of a fire that can cause real danger and may cause the closure of your business. Plan ahead in order to save lives and property. No business should be without some level of fire safety training. Make sure you have the right planning to keep your employees safe.
