Under the Fire Safety Order, employees must receive adequate fire safety training as required by their role and fire safety responsibilities. Responsible persons can be penalised for non-compliance. National Fire Safety Guidance documents recommend that an employee should be trained upon induction, or on being given new responsibilities, and then provided with regular refresher training.
In addition to ensuring compliance with the Fire Safety Order, fire safety training enables staff to respond swiftly and appropriately in the event of an emergency, improving the efficiency of evacuation and reducing the risk of injury or worse threat to lives.
