It is important, everyone in your business knows what to do in the event of a fire. For businesses with smaller premises this may simply mean pointing out the fire exits and explaining the evacuation procedure. However businesses operating out of larger commercial premises with a higher number of staff need to provide more comprehensive fire safety training.
For these kinds of larger organisations, the Fire Industry Association’s guidelines say that fire safety training must include what to do on discovering a ﬁre.
For example, how to raise the alarm, to alert staff, members of the public and visitors and how to call the emergency services.
Staff must also know the full evacuation procedure and you may want to train them to use fire-fighting equipment, such as fire extinguishers.
UK fire safety legislation guidelines say that training must be kept up to date, which means making sure new employees are fully inducted, Fire Marshal training is refreshed regularly (usually once a year), and new training is carried out if there is a significant change to your commercial premises.
