An employer's responsibility is to ensure staff are aware of how to act in the event of a fire.


It is a legal requirement that all employees undergo basic fire safety training. After carrying out a fire risk assessment, employers need to ensure that adequate and appropriate fire safety measures are in place to minimise the risk of injury or loss of life in the event of a fire. This includes providing employees with proper training on how to act in the event of a fire.

We created the Fire Safety eLearning Module for all those employers that want to ensure their staff is compliant with the most up to date fire safety regulations. The Fire Safety training will enable the user to act appropriately and safely in the prevention of fires and in the event of a fire at a workplace, recognizing different types of fires and appropriate fire extinguisher.

The Fire Safety eLearning module is suitable for anyone in a low-risk environment. However, for those people with designated fire warden responsibility or use of fire extinguisher responsibility, further specific online training would need to be undertaken for this. We also provide a Fire Warden eLearning module, read more about it here.

The Fire Safety eLearning Module is a fully online interactive course and assessment, accessible on any device, 24/7, with no time limits.  A certificate can be downloaded upon successful completion of the eLearning module.
