FAA Level 1 (RQF) Fire Safety Awareness
This course will be delivered by Group TrainingYou will, no doubt, be well aware of the potentially devastating effects of ﬁres in the workplace in terms of lives lost, injuries, damage to property and the environment, and to the business continuity. You may also be aware that it is believed that most ﬁres are preventable.
The importance of ﬁre safety in the workplace is underpinned by health and safety legislation that places a duty on employers to establish policies and procedures and ensure their employees receive appropriate training.
This course is designed for all employees as an introduction to ﬁre awareness and is an excellent ingredient in the induction programme of new employees.
It deals with how ﬁres can occur and what to do in the event of a ﬁre.
The qualiﬁcation also provides a foundation for those employees who want to develop their basic ﬁre safety awareness in order to assist their employer by undertaking more speciﬁc ﬁre safety roles in the workplace to manage ﬁre risk (e.g. as ﬁre wardens/marshals/stewards etc). Successful candidates will be awarded a national level 1 qualiﬁcation (Level 4 in Scotland).
Subjects covered include:
- The common causes of ﬁres
- The behaviour of ﬁres
- Legislation (brief) and responsibilities
- Fire prevention
- What to do if a ﬁre breaks out
- How to use ﬁre extinguishers
- Emergency evacuation procedures
DurationA minimum of 4 contact hours in the classroom.
NumbersA maximum of 16 students are allowed and must be a minimum of 14 years of age and a certiﬁcate can be offered to all, subject to assessment. A student cannot assume a responsibility in the workplace until they reach the age of 16, and then it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the student is suitable for that role. The certiﬁcate will expire as dated on the certiﬁcate, irrespective of age.
Assessment & CertificationA Level 1 national qualiﬁcation, (Level 4 in Scotland), will be issued to the learner, subject to successfully completing the test paper.
