International Level 2 Award in Fire Safety

Most fires are avoidable. Every firm is responsible for doing a comprehensive evaluation of the risk of fire, deciding on adequate fire measures, and developing an action plan in the case of a fire. Assigning Fire Warden duties to a responsible individual who has received Level 2 Fire Safety training helps guarantee that your business maintains excellent health and safety standards. It will also demonstrate your concern for your employees' health and safety. The tasks of a Fire Marshal or Fire Warden include recognizing and reporting any fire dangers at the workplace to the proper person. A Fire Marshal or Fire Warden ensures that the premises are evacuated in a timely way in the case of a fire.

This training is intended for managers, supervisors, and other employees who are in charge of dealing with fire-related rules and crises. It may be utilized as an induction or refresher course for fire marshals and wardens, as well as anybody working in a fire-risk setting.

This course provides best practices in fire safety, including an overview of fire safety, fire characteristics, laws, and risk assessment. As a result, it is ideal training for a designated fire marshal. It is also appropriate for anyone pursuing a level 2 Fire Safety certificate. It may also be employed as part of the new apprenticeship standards' on-the-job training to assist trainees in efficiently integrating into the workplace.
