We currently have no scheduled session for this Health, Safety, Security & Environment Training Course. If you are interested in running this course, please contact our Training Department at email@example.com
Why Choose this Training Course?
Fire Safety within a building or plant must be managed to be effective. Therefore, Fire Safety Management is concerned with the overall study of fire prevention, fire development, fire containment, fire dynamics, fire decay and suppression, and the means by which the management of fire safety measures mitigate the consequences of fire in human, environmental and financial terms.
Naturally, there cannot be an "off the shelf solution". Every workplace is different. Therefore, Fire Safety Management and associated Fire Risk Assessments are not theoretical exercises. The purpose of this Advanced Fire Safety Management Training Course is to improve Fire Safety NOT simply to collect and file risk assessments. So are you confident? Ask yourself that if a major fire occurred in your Section, Department or Plant will people, including visitors and contractors, know exactly what to do and where to go? Will members of staff be able to instigate and implement the available Emergency Procedures? To help answer these questions, this PetroKnowledge training course will investigate the principles and practices of Warnings, Evacuation, Emergency Procedures, Training and Exercises.
