Fire Safety in Childcare Settings
Under the Fire Safety Order 2005 fire Safety training is a legal requirement for staff in the UK.
Learn HQ has developed an interactive eLearning course especially for the childcare industry, making it ideal for those who work in nurseries, schools, and colleges.
The course will provide employees with essential information on what causes a fire, how they can be prevented, and most importantly what to do in the event of an emergency - to ensure the safety of not only themselves but also those under their care.
Fire Safety in Childcare Settings includes the following chapters:
Fire Fundamentals Explores the chemical processes that result in a fire, the different types (classes) of fire, and the different types of fire extinguishers that are available.
Fire Prevention Find out who is most likely to commit arson and how to deter and prevent attacks. This section also provides learners with clear examples of how each class of fire can be prevented.
Fire Safety Outlines the importance of fire safety signs, being aware of the location of fire equipment, understanding your Fire Action Notice, and knowing your escape route.
Fire Emergency Discusses what you should do if you discover a fire, hear the fire alarm, or find yourself trapped in a room full of smoke. You will also learn how to operate a fire extinguisher and how to use a fire blanket.
Assessment With a printable certificate upon completion (there is a 90% pass mark).
This course is available on CD or via a download link. It will take approx. 45 mins - 1 hr to complete.
