(PRWEB UK) 13 March 2013
Discount Fire Supplies, retailers of Fire Alarm Systems and LED emergency lighting, have recently added a series of online fire safety training to their product range. Fire safety in the workplace is important for many reasons, not only is it required by law under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) 2005 Order, it also helps employees of a business to keep themselves and their colleagues safe.
All of the online fire safety training that Discount Fire Supplies has to offer is video based training that is approved by the Institute of Fire Engineers and complies with UK fire safety law. The videos are simple to follow, some include interactive training games, and all are succeeded by a series of multiple choice questions. The videos can be reviewed as often as required until the candidate feels confident that they can pass the test. The end result is an automatically provided certificate proving that the training has been completed.
The Online Fire Safety Training courses available are:
- Fire Marshal Online Video Training (£30 +VAT per license): Every business must have someone who is responsible for fire safety. It is the job of the 'responsible person' to carry out and regularly review a fire risk assessment of the premises informing staff of the risks they have identified. It is also the job of the responsible person to set up and maintain appropriate fire measures to remove or reduce the risk to life. The responsible person must also plan for an emergency and provide staff information and fire safety instruction and training. Discount Fire Supplies' Fire Marshal Online Video Training will provide the responsible person with all the necessary tools they need to carry out this role successfully.
- Fire Extinguisher Online Video Training (£20 +VAT per license): This training covers all areas of the use of fire extinguishers, from when a fire extinguisher should be used and which type of fire extinguisher to use for different fires, to the hazards and risks involved with using a fire extinguisher.
- Basic Fire Safety Online Video Training (£20 +VAT per license): This training covers all of the areas required to comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) 2005 Order. Covering how fires start and spread, common causes of fire, safety features in buildings, an introduction to fire extinguishers and what to do in the event of a fire, this course ultimately provides the candidate with an in depth knowledge of how keep themselves and their businesses safe from fire.

We hope that by offering online training on our website we can not only create awareness but also make staying legal even easier. Our customers visit our website to purchase the fire safety equipment they need to protect their business, we are simply just trying to provide them with everything they need.”
