Fire Safety Awareness Training. In the last 10 years nearly 4,000 people have died in fires in the UK. 105,000 people have been injured, many suffering life changing injuries.
Our Fire Safety Awareness course is engaging, sobering and inspiring. Filmed in HD video it includes testimony from Steve Bateman (ex-Station Officer) and Dr Natalie Towle (GP),
Did you know that most people carry on exactly with what they’re doing when an alarm is raised? They either deny something is happening or they wait for leadership. We investigate how you can snap out of that behaviour. By employing simple daily procedures all staff can learn to react correctly and automatically, if the worst were to happen.
Shout Out Safety courses are entertaining exactly because we’re serious about Health & Safety training. Learning is easier when people are engaged (and they engage more when they’re entertained). This is Fire Safety – no-one wins if the trainee isn’t concentrating.
Who is this Fire Awareness course for?
Everyone. We all have a responsibility, to ourselves and to others to be prepared for fire.
Fire doesn’t just happen to other people.
About the Fire Awareness course
This course is in 4 sections which cover the following topics:
- Fire: what it is and what makes it dangerous
- Causes of fire
- Fire prevention
- What to do in the event of a fire
There are 4 banks of questions which you will need to answer. Achieve the passmark and you’ll be able to move onto the next section.
This Fire Safety Awareness course is accredited and endorsed by The CPD Certification Service. Once you’ve completed the course you’ll be able to immediately download a unique, personalized and endorsed certificate. You can keep it with your records or to pass on to your employer.
When do I get my certificate?
Unlike many e-Leaning courses, you’ll get you certificate immediately after you pass the course. It will be in your name and you can download it as soon as you’ve watched all the clips and successfully passed the tests.
How long is this course going to take?
We suggest you allocate 30 minutes. It’s short but it contains the essential information you need to know.
How is the course delivered?
The course is presented as a set of four short video clips. Simply press play and the first clip will be shown. Watch it, concentrate on the information and after the clip finishes there will be a set of questions for you to answer on the information you’ve just watched.
Is there a passmark?
Yes. Every set of questions requires you to get 75% to move on to the next clip.
Can I re-sit the test?
Yes you can. If you don’t get the 75% pass mark you can re-sit the test but the questions are likely to be different to the ones you just attempted.
Can I watch the clip again?
Yes you can. As many times as you want to.
Can I fast forward through the clip?
No, we’ve disabled that facility. When we were setting these courses up we looked at some other e-Learning courses out there and found out we could fast forward to the end of each section. In our opinion, that’s no way to learn. This stuff is important and could save lives and stop accidents and injuries – that’s why we make sure that you have to watch the video through to the end.
Why are the courses delivered by video?
Watching moving images and swiftly decoding the messages within, is second nature to us all. The average viewer in the UK watches more than 3 hand a half hours of TV a day. What better way to receive information whilst at work? But there’s another key reason. On average video learners score 37 percent better than text learners on a post-training test. On retention tests given a few days following the training session, video learners’ scores were 45 percent greater when compared to the text group. (University of Twente, 2012)
Training by video is simply a more effective way to learn.
Is the video just someone talking at me?
Nope. We create scenarios, we interview victims and medical experts, we show what you should be doing and a lot of the things you shouldn’t be doing. We make these videos as entertaining as we can. When you’re entertained, you’re concentrating. That’s key. We also use a professional crew and the outstanding actor, Mark Roper.
“Three people have suffered burns following a garage fire in Basildon which was caused by an overloaded plug socket.
The owner of the property called 999, but then tried to remove some of the contents of the garage with help from two other people.
The three people all suffered burns to their hands and arms.
When firefighters arrived at the property in the Polsteads, they managed to quickly extinguish the fire and stop it spreading to the rest of the property..
Following this incident, Essex Fire Service issued some advice:
“Incidents like these show how important it is to take extra care with electrics and plug sockets. Follow our electric fire safety advice:
“Overloaded sockets. Plugging too many electrical appliances into one socket can lead to overheating
“Use sockets safely. It’s better to use a bar adaptor (multi board) on a lead than a block adaptor
“Only use one adaptor per socket. Don’t plug one adaptor into another and try to keep to one plug per socket
“Don’t overload extension leads and adaptors, they have a limit on how many amps they can take.”
