The Fire Safety training course uses a story-telling approach in Lesson 2 to illustrate what can go wrong if people do not practice good housekeeping, and if they delay their evacuation. Learners are able to undo the mistakes made by the character in the story in order to save the day. Information is included to help learners decide if they might need a Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP), or to provide information if they have been asked to assist a colleague or visitor with a PEEP.
The Fire Safety online training provides a brief outline of fire extinguishers that might be available in the event of a fire, but is not intended to teach learners how to use them. The emphasis of the advice is to get safely away from a fire. Emergency first aid for non-specialists is included, focusing on action that can be taken while waiting for a first aider or the emergency services.
Questions and interactive exercises, such as matching tasks, are used to prompt the user to think about how to apply the lessons learnt in this Fire Safety online course.
Like all EssentialSkillz courses, this Fire Safety eLearning course can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures developed for your organisation. A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation, all at no extra cost. For example, you can add in details of Assembly area locations, information on how to contact a fire warden, or a link to a local PEEP process.
