The whole point of fire training is to make the workplace a safer place for owners, employees visitors and guests by reducing the possible occurrence of fire and should a fire occur have trained staff to firefight small fires or assist in evacuation ensuring all persons leave the building safety.
Training is not a luxury it is a requirement of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and following a number of high profile fires a number of large companies have been taken to court by fire services for not having trained staff to evacuate the buildings safety.
