What does Fire Safety training consist of?


There are 2 Ofqual-regulated levels:




Level 1 Award in Fire Safety Awareness Course


Half Day (4 Hours) You will, no doubt, be well aware of the potentially devastating effects of fires in the workplace in terms of lives lost, injuries, damage to property and the environment, and to the business continuity. You may also be aware that it is believed that most fires are preventable. ​ The importance of fire safety in the workplace is underpinned by health and safety legislation that places a duty on employers to establish policies and procedures and ensure their employees receive appropriate training. ​ This course is designed for all employees as an introduction to fire awareness and is an excellent ingredient in the induction programme of new employees. It deals with how fires can occur and what to do in the event of a fire. The qualification also provides a foundation for those employees who want to develop their basic fire safety awareness in order to assist their employer by undertaking more specific fire safety roles in the workplace to manage fire risk (e.g. as fire wardens/marshals/stewards etc). ​ Successful candidates will be awarded a national level 1 qualification (Level 4 in Scotland). ​ Syllabus A range of subjects are covered including:

  • The common causes of fire

  • The behaviour of fire
