Fire Safety Training for the Office

fire safety training

Have you imagined what you would do if there was fire at your business? Is your staff capable of taking actions to control fire from spreading and/or save lives?

As a business owner you must think about this very real issue seriously. Its best to arrange fire awareness training and fire safety training for your employees to prevent loss of  life and your business. It doesn’t mean that the employees can try to be a hero and jump into a fire like it happens in the movies, but get themselves aware what materials can possibly be the source of fire, what to do if fire occurs, to whom to inform, etc. Employees are the base of a business, so you must take necessary steps to save their lives. Fire safety training is very important and employees must take fire safety training to keep themselves safe as well as reduce the effect of a fire if it breaks out at the workplace.

Fire safety videoEvery day, we read about fire accidents but do not take them seriously by thinking it doesn’t happen with you. It also has been found that most deaths happen due to lack of knowledge in dealing with fires. Fire safety training is important for you as a business owner to save your company from huge losses, the figures show there were more than 80% businesses find it very difficult to recover from fire.

Fire may occur when three elements combine – oxygen, fuel and heat. So, it is important to keep these three elements separate and in the employees must play an important role which will reduce the chances of fire. Computers, wooden furniture, papers and other ignitable materials can easily fuel any fire. A fire can occur due to small reasons like an open flame, a cigarette, etc. Visible warning signs with instructions and smoking zones at the premises can be very helpful to keep employees aware. Fire safety alarms and fire extinguishers should also be installed at the workplaces to minimize loss.

Make sure the employees see our fire extinguisher training video and other fire safety videos, as they go through practical lessons and manuals. Its best to keep a fire safety training DVD for future fire safety trainings as a refresher, say once every few months to refresh both new and veteran employees. Its obvious that the average employee is not a fire fighter however they do need to be trained to protect their selves and the company the best way possible.

Employees without proper fire safety training will result in immediate chaos and increase the chances of huge loss of lives. Its a good strategy to enable the staff to get proper training from a professional trainer.
