Fire Extinguisher Training

Tackling a fire, safely and effectively at the early stage of its development can be the difference between the catastrophic loss of life and business or just a minor disruption to services.  Therefore it is essential that all staff in your workplace know how to use a fire extinguisher with competence in an emergency situation.

Our fire extinguisher training enables staff to confidently tackle a small workplace fire in its early stages helping to prevent escalation and unnecessary damage and disruption.

Customers can choose from two options in fire extinguisher training that can be delivered as a stand-alone course or can be included with any of the other fire safety packages offered by MB Fire.  The two options for training are:

Option 1

  • Types of Extinguishers
  • The safe use of Extinguishers

Evacuation Aid Training

The assessment must include an emergency evacuation plan which takes into account all likely occupants (including occupants with disabilities) The Fire Risk Assessment must clearly state  how the evacuation plan will be implemented.

“Such an evacuation plan should not rely upon the intervention of the Fire and Rescue Service to make it work”.

Albac Mats are a recognised leader in evacuation aids for health care providers and by adopting just two types of evacuation aid (Albac Mat & Bariatric Mat) across a workplace will give more flexibility in providing business services and helping to maintain inclusion of all service user types whilst conforming to DDA regulations.
