Employers are legally required by Fire Safety Regulations (The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005) to provide information, instruction and training to employees about fire precautions in the workplace. This Virtual College online fire safety course helps you to fulfil this obligation by providing your staff with the knowledge and understanding required to act safely in the event of a fire in the workplace, without the need to travel or take a full day away from the office.
The benefits of using online training in the workplace include:
- Cost Reductions e.g. travel fees
- Man hour reduction (training only takes as long as the learner needs)
- Self-printed certificate for evidence of course completion
- Staff can start training immediately
- Helping your business maintain a green status by reducing your carbon footprint
If you are responsible for training a large number of staff, you may be interested to hear more about our Learning Management System (LMS) that allows you to easily track and record who has received and completed the training. We offer a range of courses that cover all of your legal workplace training requirements, and these can be found in the Health and Safety Course Catalogue.
