fire safety training

Here at MARTS Logistics we can provide countrywide fire safety courses for your staff employees. The OSHA 2007 has made fire safety training a legal requirement for staff members. The courses we provide are expertly delivered in-house, with programs that will suit your time and date restrictions.

Fire training for members of staff should be especially relevant to their job role. An example would be staff members who are expected to tackle small fires with extinguisher equipment, in this instance our fire extinguisher training courses would be ideal. Additionally when hiring new workers assessing their existing fire safety knowledge is always advisable, in some cases this may be insufficient and hence utilizing the experience and know-how of our dedicated instructors is essential.

Many businesses will need fire marshals as part of their operations. Understandably these fire marshals will require additional training in order to perform their role effectively. MARTS Logistics are proud to offer in depth courses that give trainees a full understanding of fire safety issues pertaining to effective evacuation procedures and methods of fire prevention.

Fire Risk Assessment

In accordance with the OSHA 2007 fire risk assessments must be carried out by a "responsible person" on a regular basis; as a result of this assessment a fire management plan must also be enacted. Fundamentally the fire risk assessment must include an identification of the fire hazards, the persons at risk from fire and ways in which to minimize the risk.

At MARTS Group we can provide a fire risk assessment that gives your business an action plan which actively works towards reducing the chances of fire. This can be performed over a working day; the first half comprising of the assessment and the second presenting the fire safety recommendations.

In addition to assessing the risk of fire, MARTS Logistics can offer training services to ensure that the fire safety proposals are adhered to.
