Fire safety training within the NHS not only aims to educate staff on fire prevention and emergency response, but also for the unique challenges that may be faced within the healthcare sector. Fire safety online training can help prepare employees, but it is still important to complete regular fire drills.
The basic components of fire safety training include understanding the potential causes of fire, and how to detect a fire that may not immediately be visible. Your team will also learn how to use fire safety equipment, and the importance of raising the alarm in a safe and efficient manner.
Fire safety training for health also highlights the need to maintain a calm disposition, particularly around patients who may be easily distressed, hindering their own escape, and that of others. Healthcare staff must be also be aware of evacuation procedures for individuals with limited mobility, learning difficulties, or an inability to use the stairs.
