Safe Use of Fire Extinguishers

Purpose:
Our fire extinguisher training course enables you to manage fire situations in the workplace. Our bespoke training provides you with all the knowledge and practical experience needed to contain a fire at work.

Duration:
1/2 day

Method of delivery:
All our fire extinguisher training sessions have a theory session and a hands-on session - our fire safety training expert will bring a range of portable extinguishers for you to use. A “live fire” practical using a gas simulator training unit can also be provided.

Note - Training will be relevant to the potential hazards identified in your workplace and the scope of the training will depend on your role. Training should take place during normal working hours and be repeated periodically. A ‘live fire’ practical will help create a more realistic session and will improve everyone’s learning experience.
