Fire Safety (Level 2)
In 2014/15, fire and rescue services in England attended approximately 496,000 incidents (source: Home Office). Most fires can be prevented by those responsible for workplaces and other buildings taking a proactive approach to adopting the right behaviours and procedures.
This level 2 accredited, nationally recognised course is designed for employees who want to develop their fire safety awareness in order to assist their employer by undertaking more specific fire safety roles in the workplace (e.g. as fire wardens/marshals/stewards etc).
