Learning aims

The Fire Safety and Awareness manual combines a common sense approach to the prevention of fire with information about appropriate emergency equipment and procedures.

The manual enables staff to recognise the dangers they face at work and the simple steps that they can take to reduce the chances of fire occurring. Sections on hazard identification, risk assessment and control measures are illustrated with practical examples that should be instantly recognisable to anyone in a care environment.
