Why is this practical Fire Safety training important? The training is inline with recent guidance from the National Fire Chiefs Council and Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service, “Fire Safety in Specialised Housing”. In order to comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (FSO), the ‘responsible person’ (employer, occupier or owner) should take reasonable steps to reduce the risk from fire and ensure safe escape. Skills for Care fire safety guidance, BS 9999:2008 code of practice, annual fire training, and parts of standard 13 of the Care Certificate will also be covered on this essential fire safety course. We look at how fires may start and what to do in the event of a fire.
Who needs this training? Anyone working in a care environment including family carers and volunteers. Practical fire safety for home carers is designed to help an organisation to meet its duties under current legislation and recent guidance. The course provides essential knowledge and builds confidence about practical fire safety.
