Frequently asked questions about fire extinguisher training London sessions
How many people can attend an in house fire extinguisher training London course?
You may place as many persons as you wish on an in house fire extinguisher training London course. However, we do try to limit the numbers taking part in an outside session to about twenty persons. This is so we can keep everyone safe and keep an eye on everyone! However, if you need more than twenty persons to have hands on fire training we can do two sessions.
All persons up to twenty persons will get a personal fire training certificate. We also provide a group training certificate on request or for groups with more than twenty attendees. If you have a group certificate we can add the list of names on the back of the training certificate.
We only want to train a couple of persons on fire extinguishers. What are our options?
We hold open courses so those just need one or two staff can attend. Courses are held every month but usually book up fast. Therefore we do recommend that you book early to get your places. Keep an eye on our website so you know when the next courses are programmed.
What type of fire extinguishers do we use on a fire extinguisher training London session?
Your staff can use water extinguishers, foam extinguishers, CO2 extinguishers and wet chemical fire extinguishers if you have a commercial kitchen. We bring enough fire extinguishers so that up to ten of your staff can have hands on training. If you would like more persons to have hands on fire training, we charge a small supplement for each fire extinguisher that is used during the training.
Remember, we use an environmentally friendly fire training rig that burns liquefied petroleum gas through water. Therefore, we need a safe outside space away from a main road and any place where there is public access. The space needs to be about five car parking spaces in size. It must also be away from combustible materials, flammable sources, air intakes and windows. Lastly, the outside space needs to be on hard standing and also a space owned or controlled by your organisation.
Who needs to be trained in the use of fire extinguishers?
We are often asked “who needs fire extinguisher training in a workplace”. The answer is quite simple. Everyone must have fire extinguisher training.
Government guidance for types of workplace details what should be included in a fire emergency plan. These plans include fire fighting equipment in the workplace. As all workplaces must have fire extinguishers, then all staff must be trained on how to use them.
A further question on our courses is “How often should staff be trained in the use of fire extinguishers?”. This will depend on the level of risk in the workplace. Workplaces such as care homes have frequent fires and the live risk is high. Therefore persons staff in care homes will have regular and frequent fire training which should include fire extinguishers.
There is no requirement to have live fire extinguisher training though. However, there are many benefits of opting for a course with live fire extinguisher training. As most persons have not used a fire extinguisher before or if they have, they have done it very infrequently. Using a fire extinguisher, knowing how to hold it, how to direct the fire media onto the fire, how close to stand and when it is and is not safe to tackle a fire will be very useful when tackling a real fire.
If you or your staff want fire extinguisher training London courses, you can come on an open course or book an in house session. Our open courses all include live fire training. Our in house courses can also include live fire training too.
