Fire Safety & Risk Management
This four day course covers the management of fire safety including legal requirements. It also includes principles of fire and explosion, causes and prevention of fires, fire protection in buildings and ensuring the safety of people in the event of fire.
The content is designed to equip those studying it to undertake fire risk assessments in most, low risk workplaces. The syllabus is mapped to both the National Occupational Standards for Health and Safety owned by ENTO and the Fire Safety NOS owned by SkillsPlus.
No previous health and safety or fire safety knowledge is required although it should be noted that the assessment includes a requirement to write a short report.
The qualification is divided into three units, each of which is assessed separately:
Management of Health and Safety
Fire Safety and Risk Management
Practical Fire Risk Assessment
