PRACTICAL FIRE EXTINGUISHER TRAINING
Fire protection systems are in your place of work, but what are they for and how do you use them safely?
Ignis Safety Consultants start with an understanding of what extinguishing methods you will find and importantly, their limitations. We can also include your unique expectations .i.e. what your business expects of their team in the event of a fire. Having confirmed understanding, we invite customers to physically use fire fighting equipment on our custom fire rig with gas flame simulations.

FIRE DRILLS & PROCEDURES TRAINING
It is a Health & Safety requirement that all premises are to have an emergency evacuation plan in the event of fire, and that this plan is tested.
We can work with you and your staff to define evacuation procedures and document an evacuation plan appropriate for your premises. Examples of good practice are:
Marshals organise a Fire Drill
No advance warning to other staff members
Simulate one or more blocked escape routes
Fire alarm operated on instruction of management
Review your fire drill accordingly
Attending your site to supervise your fire drills
Reviewing your evacuation plan
Instructing your fire wardens/marshals on their duties
Provide advice on processes such as log books to record and document your fire drills
Providing a de-brief following your drill
Documenting the drill including details of defects, observations or recommendation
Safe evacuation isn’t just the purchase of an Evac+Chair. It is recommended that all operators carry out training to ensure the Evac+Chair is used in the correct and safe manner.
Our Operator Training course is designed to train delegates how to safely and correctly use an Evac+Chair. The course enables delegates to have hands-on experience in operating and deploying the Evac+Chair and provides guidance on the safe evacuation of persons with reduced mobility.
