Fire Safety

‘Fire that’s closest kept burns most of all’

William Shakespeare

Fire is one of the scariest events that can happen in anyone’s lifetime. The speed and damage that can be caused by a fire can be both life changing and financially damaging. One of the simplest things that can be done is to take a training session, our Face2Face Fire Safety course den allows learners to be together in a group to discuss this important aspect of workplace.

Our Fire Safety e-Learning course den although aimed at the workplace will provide important information for members of the public not trained by their employers to help them stay safe at home.

VideoTile Learning Fire Doors e-Learning Course

Why this course?

Did you know, property owners are required by law (The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005) to make sure premises reach required standards of fire safety.

Fire doors are an important element of your fire safety strategy. Used correctly, they stop fires from spreading through a building, giving people time to escape and the Fire Brigade time to attend and potentially save your premises. If a fire door is properly made by a BWF certified manufacturer, with compatible parts, and certified by an accredited third party, it should hold back a fire for 30 minutes or more.

Getting the right fire doors in place is an important responsibility, though you will also need to consider fire detection and sprinklers.

The components of a door – hinges, seals, handles and glazing – are as important as the door itself. This is because, in a fire, doors can warp, move and allow smoke and fire through the opening. The seals and the gaps between the door frame and the wall are vital too. They also stop smoke and fire spreading as quickly.
