International Level 3 Award in Fire Safety Management

The goal of this course is to give knowledge and comprehension of key fire safety principles, as well as the technical, legislative, and practical skills needed to support the function of fire safety auditor and to provide a solid foundation for additional learning. 

To be effective, fire safety within a facility or factory must be managed. As a result, Fire Safety Management is concerned with the comprehensive study of fire prevention, fire development, fire containment, fire dynamics, fire decay and suppression, and the means by which fire safety measures are managed to limit the human, environmental, and financial effects of fire. Naturally, there is no "off the shelf solution." Every workplace is unique. As a result, Fire Safety Management and the associated Fire Risk Assessments are not academic exercises.

OSHAS Level 3 Award in Fire Safety Management training course is designed to increase fire safety rather than simply collecting and filing risk assessments. So, how certain are you? Consider what would happen if a huge fire broke out in your Section, Department, or Plant.
