Fire Marshal for Care Homes

All care homes must provide appropriate fire awareness training for all their members of staff, regardless of the size of the business. This is in accordance with The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

Our online fire safety training course is the most cost-effective way to provide employees with the necessary fire awareness understanding and for employers to meet their legal obligations of proving training.

This course covers the same content as our Fire Marshal course but features additional content tailored specifically for care homes. Every employee should be given fire awareness training as per the above regulation. This course provides everything employees need to know, from common causes of fire through to how to perform fire drills and evacuation procedures.

What are the benefits of this course?

This course is recognised by RoSPA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) and the CPD (Continuing Professional Development).
