Course Description

Care/Nursing homes pose significant risks due to the very nature of their business and residents. Residents can often have access to naked flames and combustible materials.

Add to this the fact that the residents can often be immobile, confused or infirm, requiring assistance from limited staffing. It is important that people know exactly what to do to keep everyone safe.

We can provide a trainer controlled gas simulator to train the delegates using a “real fire” and extinguishers to give delegates a greater knowledge of the extinguishers uses and capabilities.

You will, no doubt, be well aware of the potentially devastating effects of fires in the workplace in terms of lives lost, injuries, damage to property and the environment, and to business continuity.
