Video Fire Awareness
Watch a short demonstration video and review the course content below:
1. The Nature of Fire
In order for an employee to participate in the process of keeping the workplace safe from fire, they must have an understanding of fire and how fire behaves. This section explains "The Triangle of Fire", "Fire Growth and Development", and "Fire Spread''.
2. Fire Signage
Signs are used to communicate an important message to prevent disaster in an emergency, and even save lives. This section illustrates the different types of signage used and helps employees to understand their meaning and the importance of following their instructions.
3. Fire Hazards
Following an explanation of potential fire hazards that can occur in the workplace, employees are invited to explore two interactive workplaces in order to identify 10 fire hazards within each.
4. Discovering a Fire
This section explains what action to take in the event of an emergency. Information includes "Raising the Alarm", "Calling the Fire Service" and "Evacuating the Premises".
5. Portable Fire Extinguishers
When most fires start they are very small, but if left to develop, they will grow and spread, causing a great deal of damage and threatening the occupants of the building. This fire extinguisher training shows how to operate common fire extinguishers and the importance of using the right type of extinguisher on each type of fire.
6. Taking the Test
After completing the fire training employees sit a 20 question multiple-choice test, which is evidenced by a certificate.
