FIRE MARSHAL TRAINING
Designed for individuals either stepping into the role of a Fire Marshal for the first time or for existing Marshals looking to refresh their knowledge and understanding of the following:
Causes of fire and fire spread
Hazard ‘spotting’ and knowing who is at risk
Fire Marshal ‘routine’ in house checks.
Evacuation techniques and strategies
Actions to take in the event of fire
FIRE DRILLS & PROCEDURES TRAINING
It is a Health & safety requirement that all premises should have an emergency evacuation plan for use in the event of a fire and that the plan should be tested.
An example of good practice would be to carry out ‘fire drills’ such as:
Simulate one or more of the escape routes from the building being obstructed
No advance warning of the drill should be given to staff other than specific staff for safety purposes
The fire alarm should be operated on instructions of management
We can work with you and your staff to define evacuation procedures and document an evacuation plan appropriate for your premises.
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 recommendations
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.
Ensuring that you choose the correct equipment
Limitations of portable fire-fighting equipment
Basics on how to inspect & operate
What you should expect with fire
Practice on our live fire rig
This course is primarily presentation based but does involve and number of group discussions regarding their own place of work, experiences and procedures.
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.
This can be fuels, chemicals, increased ignition risk and/or high fire loading (large storage of combustible materials).
Our course involves a focused presentation on the fire risk specific to your environment(s) followed by practical use of fire extinguishers at a professional firefighting venue where attendees suppress real fires in a safe way under one-to-one guidance and tutorship.
