About the Course

Each year in the U.S., 70,000-80,000 workplaces experience a serious fire. Property losses from workplace fires exceed $2 Billion annually. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries Charts, 1992-2007, fires and explosions accounted for 3% of workplace fatalities in 2007.

Fire and explosion present a significant hazard to life and structure. Still, in many cases, it could be avoided or the damage minimised if the theory of combustion and the means by which fire spreads were more widely appreciated. Fire safety is important, and one must take proper precautions to prevent a fire. Yes, fire may be inevitable, but if prepared, you can save lives, much suffering and a great deal of property.

If a corporation faces a major interruption, it still has a service to maintain and it has a product to produce; it has customers, suppliers, investors and employees to be kept informed and updated; therefore, an effective and well-rehearsed Emergency Action Plan has to be in place and validated before that day. So, this Advanced Fire Safety Risk Assessment training course will give the delegates intensive knowledge and familiarise with fire safety law, how to carry out a fire risk assessment, and the fire safety systems, equipment, and procedures you must have in place.
