This does not mean that each and every person in the business needs to have training and a full comprehension of fire safety, but it does mean that selected employees can act in the case of a fire.
Ideal people to train in fire safety include security personnel, as well as those people who might be working the closest to any fire safety equipment. The fire safety equipment might include fire extinguishers, hoses, fire blankets, safety belts and other pieces. Of course, if the fire is completely out of control then you’ll probably need to follow evacuation procedure and wait for fire fighters to arrive and control the fire properly.
When it comes to basic training, this can be given so individuals can learn how to use the fire equipment.
Fire training does not just include learning how to use the fire instruments. It also might include learning how to deal with people who are in a state of fear or panic, often experienced when there is a fire. They can be taught how to best gauge the fire exits, and how to quickly and efficiently encourage individuals to leave the building. Evacuation procedures can be put into place so that in an emergency situation, lights or visibility can be enhanced to make navigating to the nearest fire exit easier.
As well as complying with fire safety laws, having fire safety training can be life-saving and a real practicality in most workplaces. Even if a fire can be brought under control, having these proper fire safety training measures to prepare the right individuals will allow your company to take better precautions and have peace of mind and to act quickly if there really is a fire hazard.
