Reducing the Risks of Fire with NEBOSH Training

Fires are not only potentially deadly they can also destroy businesses and livelihoods. Reducing the risks from fires is the objective of the NEBOSH Fire Certificate qualification.

The National Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH) have excellent courses available for personnel on all levels. The Fire Certificate has been designed for candidates that already have the NEBOSH General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety and can be hugely beneficial for all organisations.

Managing the Potential Fire Risks

The course covers risk assessments and risk management for the prevention of fires. During the training, provided by expert tutors, candidates will learn many excellent skills. These skills can be taken back into the work environment and applied with ease to ensure that the risks of fires are kept under control adequately. The course content is based on a legal framework and will help to ensure all of your fire management systems are complying with your own legal responsibilities.

The NEBOSH Fire Certificate syllabus is often delivered via face-to-face training, but it's also possible to choose the NEBOSH Fire Certificate online (e-learning). This is popular with those looking to learn at their own time. Employers often choose this option if they cannot afford to have the candidate away from the work place for days at a time.

Fire Prevention and Control

During the course candidates will learn all about how to prevent fires from spreading and how to create and maintain adequate fire evacuations. Risk assessments play an important role in discovering how effective the control measures are, how fires may start and how they can be prevented and controlled.

There are also set procedures of investigating fires to learn along with what the purpose of the investigations are. At the end of the training candidates are awarded with the recognised qualification that can be added to any health and safety portfolio.

The NEBOSH fire certificate is awarded provided they pass the assignment. The assignment takes place within the workplace and can be used to identify where improvements can be made and help to reinforce the learning that has taken place during the training.
