Fire Marshall Training NDST Ltd

Fire Marshall Training from NDSTS

What would happen if your company had a major fire?

Do you have sufficient procedures in place to ensure that all personnel are safe, your business premises are protected and to ensure that if you do have a fire that the insurance company will pay out?

  • Do you have trained Fire Wardens in place?
  • Do you have sufficient people trained to cover leave and holidays?
  • Do your staff know what to do in the event of a fire?
  • Do you have correct test and recording proceduresin place?
  • Do your staff know what extinguisher to use on which type of fire?
  • How many of your staff have actually operated a fire extinguisher in a real fire scenario?
  • Why should you train your employees?

Apart from the fact that it is a legal requirement under the new Regulatory Reform Order (Fire Safety) that came into force on the 1st October 2006 it has also been proven time and again that a well trained workforce not only reduces the risk of fire, but in the event of one, employees will respond quickly and effectively to minimise the damage.

How people learn:

Our trainers understand that people learn through their five senses sight, sound, touch, smell and taste. Generally people have a preferred learning style i.e. visual (reading), auditory (listening to tapes) and kinaesthetic (hands on). Traditional classroom learning styles previously taught, may only have covered the visual and auditory learning styles. However, we have designed our courses to maximise the learning for all students that attend.

Our practical fire extinguisher element of the course is specifically designed to give your personnel the opportunity to operate fire extinguishers in a real fire scenario. This course will encourage personnel to take an active role in the protection of their livelihoods and your business.
