Level 1 Award in Fire Safety Awareness

COURSE OVERVIEW

This qualification will help any business or organisation to meet its duties under current fire safety legislation by giving employees essential knowledge about fire safety, helping them to understand how to prevent a fire from starting as well as what actions to take if a fire does break out.

It is ideal for employees undertaking induction training, for those with no specific fire-safety role and also as an introduction for those employees who will be embarking on further fire safety training (for example the Level 2 Award in Fire Safety Principles).
