Fire Safety

Aims

There are a number of courses offered by Safe-Sure Care Ltd. All staff should have Mandatory Fire training as part of their induction. In the care sector there have been a number of recent fire’s in Care Homes. The CQC are concentrating heavily on fire safety compliance as part of their inspection processes.

Every industry needs to undertake a risk assessment to ascertain the level of fire training required. All businesses should train every member of staff in Basic Fire Awareness and have a number of staff acting as Fire Wardens.

There are a number of solutions that Safe-Sure Care can provide for this course. Either as an introduction 1 hr mandatory session combined in its 4 hour or 6 hour induction program.
