Fire Safety - off the shelf elearning courses.

It is a legal requirement that all employees undergo a basic fire safety training, and it is an employer’s responsibility to ensure staff are aware of how to act in the event of a fire. This includes providing employees with proper training on fire safety in the workplace.

After carrying a fire risk assessment, employers need to ensure that adequate and appropriate safety measures are in place to minimise the risk of injury or loss of life in the event of a fire. 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 in the workplace.

At Sponge, we have created the Fire Safety elearning Course, suitable for anyone in a low-risk environment. The course will enable the user to recognise potential fire hazards in an office setting, different types of fires and appropriate fire extinguishers. For the designated Fire Warden personnel, specific online training would need to be taken, and Sponge also provides that module.

Fully online and interactive, available 24/7 on any device, with no time limits, thanks to Sponge state-of-the-art LMS. It has an assessment at the end of the course and a certificate can be downloaded upon successful completion of the course. This elearning course has been assured by RoSPA Qualifications.
