Why all staff need school fire trainingschool fire training

So why do all staff in educational premises need school fire training? After all, most school have regular fire drills and they are carried really quickly!

School fire training needs to cover a range of issues not just fire drills. So what should your school fire training include? Classes of fire and also how to use fire extinguishers are a must know for all staff. Some other key staff will need to know what maintenance checks need to be carried out and also how often.

All school staff need to know the contents of the fire emergency plan. This is not just how to get out in an emergency, it is about all fire safety issues in the building. For example, all schools carry out fire drills during normal school days, but drills are also needed for breakfast and after school clubs. They are also required if the building is hired to third parties. Head teachers should also consider fire drills during break and lunch times to see how efficient their fire plan is.

Why train all staff though? We have teachers everywhere!! Some schools believe administration staff and catering staff may not need such comprehensive training. However, many administration departments and catering have regular contact with pupils, so must react immediately putting plans into place if a fire occurs.

Who needs workplace fire extinguisher training?

So who needs workplace fire extinguisher training? This is a common question on our fire marshal and also manager courses. The fire law requires responsible persons to have a fire emergency plan for their workplace. The content of the fire emergency plan should also be the basis for staff fire training.

Government guidance covers the contents of fire emergency plans for different types of workplace. Since each guidance note says that staff must know about fire fighting equipment in the workplace, the inference is clear! All staff should know about fire extinguishers in their workplace.
