Extinguisher Training

Knowing how to use the Fire Extinguishers available on your site, is not only essential to the wellbeing of you and your staff, it may also prove to be a life saving tool in the event of an emergency.

Our course will help you stay compliant with the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015, while also helping you with the insurance of your building.

The course is designed to give your staff an understanding of the risks associated with workplace fires, while giving them the ability to assess whether to evacuate or fight the fire. All participants use at least one fire extinguisher on a fire provided by our specifically designed safety trailer. They are then given a theory test based on information provided during the course. On completion they are issued a Fire Extinguisher Training Course Certificate valid for two years.

“Fire Extinguishers are in place for an incipient stage of a fire and if trained I strongly recommend and if safe to do so, extinguish the fire and call the brigade. We are building a resilient community, in the event the brigade is unable to respond due to a large scale incident we need our people in business to deal with these types of incidents and the only way to do this is to have those people trained”
