Every year, thousands of businesses in Australia are damaged by fire. Fires in the workplace and on job sites can do millions of dollars of damage. They can also take people’s lives. Being able to supply your team with comprehensive fire safety training can be invaluable in the event of an emergency.
Do you have confidence that your employees know what to do in the event of a fire? Does everyone know how to recognize common fire hazards, assess a fire, use your fire extinguishers, and respond accordingly?
Our fire safety training course teaches your employees how to best prevent fires at work and exactly what to do if one arises.
What is fire protection training?
Fire safety training involves teaching your employees about various aspects of small workplace fire safety as they relate to your building and location.
Our training begins with “raising the alarm”. We look at where fire alarms are located on your premises and we show people how to use them. You would be surprised to learn how many employees often don’t know how to set off the alarm! That’s why we start with the basics.
Next, our Brisbane fire safety training looks at fire safety diagrams and discusses the best evacuation routes available at your workplace. Our training covers how to identify different classes of fires in Australia including classes A to F. We cover everything from fires related to general combustibles to flammable gases, metals, electrical devices, and appliances, along with cooking fats and oils. We teach your employees about fire triangle theory and discuss what a fire needs to grow even bigger and how to best prevent this from happening.
When it comes to putting out a fire, no doubt, a professional team of firefighters is best. In some situations, however, property and lives can be saved on the spot with quick thinking and reactions. We teach learners how to attack a fire from multiple directions, using various tools such as a fire extinguisher or a fire blanket. Fire extinguishers come in various forms depending on the type of fire, and we train your employees to be comfortable using any extinguisher in multiple scenarios. Fire protection training benefits us all!
How can your business benefit from fire protection training?
It’s a fact that a fire extinguisher is most often your first line of defence when fire strikes. It may be disturbing to know, however, that many people don’t react quickly in the event of a workplace fire, resulting in lost time and increased danger as well as damage. When someone doesn’t know how to use a fire extinguisher, they may hesitate to even try.
Oftentimes, automatic sprinkler systems activate in a building when smoke is present even though a small fire may be readily extinguished by hand. This can cause your business thousands of dollars in damage and repairs that can be avoided.
More importantly, proper training on what to do in the event of a fire and how to use a fire extinguisher can not only save your business money but also potentially save lives.
