Course Introduction

The EssentialSkillz Emergency Evacuation online training provides clear instructions for your workforce on your emergency evacuation procedures. Given that evacuation procedures are most likely to take place in an emergency situation, it is crucial that your workforce have a clear understanding of what they should do if they discover a fire or hear an emergency alarm.

Course Content

Ensuring that your workforce is prepared for an emergency could be the difference between life and death, especially when it comes to fire emergencies. The damage done to human life and property by fire and smoke can be immense, and taking immediate, considered decisions is essential to grasp the small windows of opportunity that characterise many emergencies.

The EssentialSkillz Evacuation Essentials eLearning course can give you this comfort. It outlines the key steps your employees should take if an emergency strikes, and specifically how to evacuate your building if a fire starts. The online course explains what to do if a fire is discovered, how to raise the alarm and who to contact. It also provides clear instructions on evacuating the building by the safest and most direct route and proceeding directly to the emergency evacuation assembly point.

The course also explains what to do if you are unable to leave a building, who and how to help others leave the building and what action should be taken if you or others are trapped in a smoke-filled room. Importantly, the online course emphasises that all evacuation alarms must be treated as genuine, even if you suspect it to be a false alarm. It is designed to be delivered in tandem with regular practice evacuations, so routes can become familiar and alternative ones identified.
