Each year the correct use of fire extinguishers saves UK businesses millions, preserves lives and prevents injury. Small fires can spread rapidly and trained staff can help to prevent the escalation of minor fires. Our experienced trainers use the latest fire training equipment to demonstrate the safe use of fire extinguishers. Delegates are given the opportunity to use the extinguishers.
This course is suitable for those employees who may need to use a fire extinguisher in an emergency.
