Fire Fighting and Evacuation

Fire Fighting is more than just knowing how an extinguisher works. In fact, there are many aspects that the learner/employee must recognize, both in workplace safety and from a legal viewpoint. What are the legal requirements and what type of extinguishers should you have in your specific working environment? These are only a number of questions that will be answered in our Fire Training course.
