How often should residential care home staff have fire training?


That was a question to our office this morning! So how often should care home staff have fire training?

Frequency of fire training should be provided according to the risk in a premises. For example; a small single storey building on a quiet road with just ten staff would require less frequent training that an office on the 60th floor of the Shard? Why? Well there are more chances of a fire in the Shard with hundreds of different tenants and escape routes or procedures will be more complex.

A residential care home should be considered high risk. Often with many immobile or confused service users, staff will need  frequent fire training to ensure that any procedure is carried out efficiently and without delay.
