Fire Safety Training Course
Managing Fire Safety has to be a priority in all places of work and in every home. House fires cause 30 - 40 deaths per year in Ireland with chimneys and cooking being the most common causes of fires in Irish homes. Many businesses will never recover from the loss of assets and damage to property as a result of a fire in the workplace. Arson is a major cause of fires in Irish homes and in places of work, a simple Fire Risk Assessment can highlight potential fire hazards such as bad housekeeping which often provides an opportunity for arson. With hazards identified fire prevention controls can be implemented. Relevant to the home, the workplace and any premises, our Fire Safety Course gives trainees the knowledge, skills and attitude to be able to deal with fire safely, identify hazards, perform a fire risk assessment and put fire prevention measures in place.

Fire poses a significant risk in the workplace. The Health & Safety Authority has a role in monitoring employers' management of fire risk. Much responsibility for fire safety rests with the Local Authority.
A fire needs three elements - heat, oxygen and fuel. Without heat, oxygen and fuel a fire will not start or spread.
