Fire Warden Training

tiff infomation

This 1-day training course provides knowledge and training in fire safety as required by the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 and the Fire Services Act 1981.

What you will learn on our course

At the end of this course you will know your duties as a Fire Warden and the actions to be followed during a fire or an emergency. It will also provide you with the skills to recognise the importance of fire prevention and how to implement a fire prevention ethos within the workplace. Practical experience of using a fire extinguisher is contained in the course (subject to suitable conditions – not on an actual fire).

The course will also focus on Personal Emergency Evacuation Plans (PEEP), record keeping, fire drills etc. We promote the culture of prevention rather than cure.

This course runs at our premises in Dublin and at other locations around the country. We can also teach in-house if you have the facilities and it is more suitable for employees and employers.
