The Importance of Fire Safety Awareness Training

Fires are extremely dangerous; every year there are thousands of workplace fires where people lose their life or get seriously injured. So staff in the workplace need to be able to react quickly and properly if a fire breaks out. Online fire safety training helps to avoid the possibility of injury and death, as well as the loss of property.

People can make mistakes due to ignorance when it comes to fighting fires or escaping a dangerous situation. That’s why fire safety knowledge can help staff to keep calm instead of panicking when a fire alarm sounds. If all employees are confident about what to do and where to go in the event of a fire, people will be safer. Fire safety awareness training can literally save lives.

The law requires all employees to receive adequate fire safety training. Our training course is an effective way to train employees in any type of business, including office environments, schools, nurseries, GP practices and dental surgeries.

What does the Fire Safety Awareness course cover?

The course contains the following 6 topics:

1 – Employer and Employee Responsibilities

The first topic is about employer and employee responsibilities. It outlines the purpose of the fire safety regulations and the fire safety risk assessment. The topic identifies what is meant by the term responsible person. It also identifies what an employer must do, and what employees must do, with regards to fire safety.

2 – The Three Essential Elements of Fire

The second topic identifies the three essential elements of fire and it also describes what happens when you remove any one of these elements.

3 – How Fire Spreads

The third topic describes four ways that fire can spread. You will learn about why smoke is such a serious threat. The topic also identifies practices that increase the risk of fire and smoke spreading throughout a building.

4 – Raising and Responding to a Fire Alarm

Topic 4 is about raising and responding to a fire alarm. You will learn about the actions to take if you discover a fire. You will also learn when you should attempt to extinguish a fire. The topic covers three things you must NOT do if you hear the fire alarm sound.

5 – Minimising Injury

Topic 5 describes what you can do to minimise injury from fire. It identifies three ways to defend against smoke inhalation. You will learn about the STOP, DROP and ROLL technique to use if your clothing catches fire.

6 – Fire Prevention and Best Practice

The final topic explores the difference between fire prevention and fire protection. It also presents examples of prevention and protection measures.


Once you have completed the six topics, you will be allowed to take the assessment. The course generates an assessment from question banks so that the questions change each time a candidate takes the assessment. This makes the training suitable for initial and refresher training.

There is no limit on the number of attempts at the assessment. In addition, the course gives useful feedback so learners can learn from incorrect responses.
