At Synergy Fire Engineering we see the truly awful impact a fire can have on a business and its employees and unfortunately many business owners learn the hard way that fire safety training could have saved a lot of heartache and money.

A serious fire can really make or break a business, especially if trading has to stop to rebuild.

If you’re a business owner, the stark reality is that the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 says you MUST provide fire safety training for your employees.

But the good news is that at Synergy, we are BAFE SP205 Accredited Fire Risk Assessors – which means we provide inclusive and engaging courses which provide you everything you need to keep you, your team and your business safe and compliant.

Do you still need convincing?

Here are some of the ways fire safety training can help your employees.

It will inform your workforce what kinds of things are most likely to cause a fire in the industry and environment you work in. We know that no two businesses are run in the same way, so this part of our training is personalised to you.  

It will empower your employees to know what to do if they discover a fire. No one wants to think about the worst case scenario and experiencing a fire can be frightening. But having a plan, especially a team of fire wardens, in place is reassuring and the key to getting people out alive and preventing extensive damage.
