HABC Level 2 Award in Fire Safety Principles: allows candidates to develop their basic fire safety awareness in order to assist their employer by undertaking more specific fire safety roles in the workplace (as fire wardens/marshals, stewards etc.)
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (FSO) requires the ‘responsible person’ (employer, occupier or owner) to take reasonable steps to reduce the risk from fire and ensure safe escape for both employees and visitors. The FSO requires the responsible person to:
- Ensure all employees are provided with adequate safety training at the time they are first employed and on being exposed to new and increased risks.
- Appoint one or more ‘competent persons’ to assist with fire safety in the workplace, and provide them with sufficient training to remain effective in reducing the risks from fire hazards.
- Make a suitable and sufficient assessment of the fire risks in the workplace to which relevant persons are exposed, for the purpose of identifying general fire precautions.
