Fire drills and staff fire training

Managers should carry out enough fire drills to ensure that all staff practice at least once a year.Government guidance says that the benefits of surpise fire drills may be outweighed by the health and safety issues associated with giving no prior warning.

City Fire Training say ” All staff should be informed of fire drills. If they are told when a fire drill occurs and know when the fire alarm is tested, when the alarm goes off for a real emergency, staff will know it is a real event”.

Everyone must participate in the fire drill, but if this causes extreme difficulties or poses a security risk , then some persons may remain in the building, however a another fire drill involving those who did not take part should be held. You should record the result of each fire drill in your fire log book.

The Fire Safety Order 2005 requires responsible persons to nominate and train a sufficient number of staff to help carry out fire drills and emergency evacuation procedures. This includes training on how to operate any fire-fighting equipment considered necessary.

Fire safety induction training

The responsible person must provide all employees with instruction and training so that they know what to do in the event of a fire and any other details in the fire emergency plan.

Every employee, including those on temporary or short term contracts must know:

  • how to raise the alarm if they discover a fire
  • who contacts the fire brigade
  • how to use the fire extinguishers and any other fire fighting equipment
  • how to evacuate the building
  • where the assembly point is
