Contact us! We'll want to have an idea of the number of participants, desired training topics, and your preferred dates. We will work with you to customize a training program that meets your specific needs and schedule.
It helps if you can transfer knowledge on the layout of the facility (if we are unfamiliar with it), and can reference any existing emergency procedures/fire safety measures. Being open to learning, actively participating, and encouraging staff engagement will enhance the effectiveness of the training session.
We work closely with all our clients to understand your unique circumstances and tailor the training content, duration, and delivery to address your specific fire safety concerns and any industry-specific considerations.
This is highly dependent on the scale of the training required. The number of staff, size of facilities, extent of hazards, and required competence of your staff members all play a role in what we'll quote. If you’re unsure, contact us!
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 makes a legal requirement that "employees are provided with adequate safety training at the time when they are first employed; and on their being exposed to new or increased risks". What this means is highly dependent on the nature of your business and the risks it faces!
We recommend carrying out fire safety training at least once a year. This can be a simple refresher in some settings, or more intensive in more hazardous settings. Whatever the case, if there are changes to the risk-level or new personnel introduced to the workplace, fire safety training is legally required.
It's a good idea to maintain records of training attendance, training content, dates of training sessions, and any certificates or qualifications obtained by participants. These records serve as evidence of compliance and can be reviewed during inspections or audits by regulatory authorities. We'll also issue employees with a certificate of competence following a training session.
Typically, professional training providers will be registered with recognised body like the Fire Industry Association (FIA) or the British Approvals for Fire Excellence (BAFE) to demonstrate their competency and adherence to industry standards. ISE Fire is registered with both.
Fire safety training helps reduce the risk of workplace fires by raising awareness, educating employees about fire hazards and prevention measures, promoting proper use of fire safety equipment, and ensuring quick and effective response during emergencies, ultimately enhancing overall fire safety preparedness and minimizing potential fire incidents.
Yes! Fire safety training helps develop employees by equipping them with valuable knowledge and skills which should be applicable outside the workplace too. This not only enhances the resilience of your fire safety strategy but also empowers employees to identify hazards/solutions in their own lives.
If your staff are equipped to quickly identify and respond to a small ignition, it may well prevent what could have been a larger fire. In short: yes, there is a clear material benefit to fire safety training.
There's no one answer for this but some insurance providers may include your overall fire strategy into their formula for calculating insurance premiums. This is of course highly dependent on the overall risk for the insured property.
In a typical fire safety training program, we may cover fire prevention, hazard identification, evacuation procedures, proper use of fire extinguishers, emergency communication, and general fire safety awareness. Participants should walk away with the knowledge and skills necessary to prevent, respond to, and mitigate fire incidents.
Yes! We carry out live fire extinguisher training which not only teaches you about the different types of fire extinguishers, but also which fires to use them on, and then let you have a go at putting out a real fire on our mobile fire trainer.

Yes! Fire Safety Guidelines requires that for every twenty employees, one needs to be appointed as fire warden.
