In the UK over 1000 people are injured each year, due to workplace fires. Each workplace is therefore required to undertake a fire risk assessment. This assessment will aim to identify the potential causes of a fire in the workplace and establish controls to reduce the risk of a fire starting and reducing the risk of how it may affect people.
Employers are also required to ensure that their staff have suitable training. All staff should have some form of fire awareness training. In some workplaces there will be a requirement for trained fire marshals.
QNUK has developed two fire qualifications in order to meet this training need.
