Fire safety training

Fire safety training for your business, provided by the Manchester Airport Fire Service

Fire safety training is vital in a fire emergency.

The benefits of your employees being trained in fire safety and prepared for how to cope with a fire are invaluable

  • If you are an employer, business owner or are in control of a premises, the Fire Safety order that came into force in 2006 states that you 'must ensure that your employees are provided with adequate safety training'.
  • By providing Fire Safety and/or Fire Warden training, you are ensuring your employees well-being, and protecting your investment in your staff and your business
  • All training providers are fully qualified instructors with a minimum of 5 years’ experience and are currently serving with the emergency services.

Ever been in a situation were you wished you knew first aid, then here's your chance to get on a course and be confident enough to give first aid. Give your employees the confidence to give life saving skills before an ambulance arrives.

Protect your employees and your business by booking your staff on a course.
