Fire Awareness with Fire Extinguisher – FIRE04
Our fire awareness and fire extinguisher course is aimed at all levels of staff that have a fire safety responsibility that may need to operate fire extinguishers.
“You recently ran some health and safety and COSHH training here at St Werburghs City Farm. First of all – it was a fantastic day and loads of our staff have fed back that it was really interesting, engaging and informative. Thank you! The trainer used some COSHH Risk Assessment and Register of substances templates during the day. They’re so much better than ones we have been using up until now.”
