The EssentialSkillz Fire Safety Online Training Course covers the prevention of fires and the behaviour expected in the event of a fire. The fire triangle is used to help the learner understand how fires are started, and how to spot fire hazards. Examples of measures required to prevent common fires are explained. The importance of maintaining clear exit routes is also covered.
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 the course.
All our courses provide technically accurate training which keeps your organisation in line with best practice. We include the latest techniques in learning which ensure learners are engaged throughout. Our courses are also:

On successful completion, learners receive a personalised certificate which includes the learner’s name, score and date of completion. Certificates can be viewed, downloaded and printed off at any time to serve as a record of compliance.
Create your own question and answer bank to test your users on the key information that they need to know to be fully compliant. Set core questions to appear in the test section that users are required to pass so that crucial learning points are reinforced.
Generate 10 random questions from a bank of 20 to test your user’s retention and understanding of key content.
As training administrator, you can configure the passing score that users need to complete the course. Set your own grade boundaries to ensure your training complies with the standards set out by your organisation.
The course is suitable for all staff as an introduction to fire safety or as a refresher course. It could be used to prepare non-specialists for more specific training, such as the online Fire Warden course.
