The Legal Requirement for Training
The Regulatory Reform Order (Fire Safety) 2005 and the associated Health & Safety legislation place an obligation on employers to ensure that their staff receive adequate fire safety training at the time when they are first employed and on there being increased or changed risks. The level and frequency of staff fire training is determined by the type, use and risk presented.
Nicholas James will advise you on the most suitable training programme for your staff using the most advanced technology and resources available.
All courses are delivered by Nicholas James Training Staff who are fully qualified Fire Engineers with over 27 years experience. Training is carried out normally at the client's premises with all learning tools provided. All courses aim to ensure that employees feel confident in their role in a fire emergency.
A Certificate of Competence will be issued on completion of the course.
