New legislation has meant a move towards greater emphasis on fire prevention in all non-domestic premises. This means that employers and persons in charge of care and nursing homes must carry out a Fire Risk Assessment and ensure the safety of all those who may be affected by the risk of fire. More importantly, they must ensure that staff understand the new rules. To this end, they should also provide information and training in fire precautions and emergency arrangements.
These precautions include training in fire safety emergency arrangements, fire prevention and fire safety procedures, all of which are now required by law. The ‘Don’t Panic’ training package helps organisations meet the training requirements in a simple and enjoyable way – so that staff are fully prepared to deal with a fire emergency. The Don’t Panic training film has been produced to ensure that all staff know the correct procedures to follow when the fire alarm sounds and before the fire brigade arrives.
Anyone who has experienced a fire, however small, will know just how frightening it can be, particularly if you are responsible for the care and well being of others. Two of the key reasons which cause deaths and injuries in fire are ‘panic’ and ‘staff not knowing the correct procedures to follow’. Control of fire is dependent upon training in advance.
Don’t Panic is designed and written particularly for the owners and staff in residential establishments of all kinds including care homes, small hospitals, guest houses and hotels – but the rules apply equally to all educational institutions and commercial offices. Written by experts, this training package contains a 25 minute film in DVD format, together with a manager’s guide and staff training booklet.
