Fire Drill Training

Fire drills are an essential part of your workplace safety program. When carrying out fire drills we can be onsite when the drill is taking place in order to ensure that:

  • staff are placed at strategic locations in the building;
  • assess if the evacuation procedures are being adhered to.
  • In addition we can assist in drawing up evacuation procedures to be followed in the event of fire or other emergency. These procedures will be drawn up based on site visits and meetings with your safety officers.

    Once the procedures are agreed we can arrange training with the nominated people within the organisation. This information can then be circulated to all staff.
