IOSH Fire Safety For Managers

Understand how to manage fire safety at work

Course Overview

The best way to achieve safety and health training success is to get people fully involved, having fun and learning by doing. We want to get delegates really thinking about what they’re learning – and having the confidence and enthusiasm to put it into practice when they’re back at work – so that everyone notices the difference.

A sustainable, workplace, fire safety culture is based on a shared set of positive attitudes, knowledge, perceptions and beliefs about fire prevention and fire protection. An important step to achieving such a culture is to get the buy-in of managers, supervisors and team leaders.

Fire Safety for Managers is at the cutting edge of fire safety training for managers and supervisors. You’ll find a practical programme, full of step-by-step guidance, and a sharp business focus. But you’ll also find that the content engages and inspires your staff – critical to getting the message embedded across the  whole organisation.

Who the course is for

Fire Safety for Managers is designed for managers and supervisors in any sector, and any organisation worldwide, who require an awareness of fire safety. They won’t suddenly become fire safety experts – but they’ll get up-to-speed on the practical actions they need to take, and gain the knowledge and tools to tackle the relevant fire safety issues they’re responsible for. Importantly, Fire Safety for Managers makes a powerful case for fire safety being an integral part of day-to-day management and business.
