Introduction to Fire Safety in the Workplace

Introduction to Fire Safety in the Workplace

According to government statistics, there are 15,000 fires in workplaces and places where people gather in England every year. That’s 40 fires a day.

The costs associated with fire are significant from physical costs including destruction of property, loss of income and increased insurance premiums, through to immeasurable, profound costs including loss of life, severe injury and reputational damage.

However, fire is preventable.

The course
