What type of space do we need for live fire training at our premises?

We need to have an outside space to carry out live fire training. It cannot be carried out under cover or on a roof space.

Outside training spaces requirements

The outside space must be about five to six car parking spaces in size and must also not be near a main road so it does not distract road users. It cannot be used by members of the public. It will also have to be land owned or controlled by your workplace. The space must also be away from combustible sources and air intakes.

We will carry out a risk assessment of the area and may cancel the session if it is not suitable or if there adverse weather conditions.

If you need more information about outside spaces for fire training either call us or email us.

Frequently asked questions and answers

So, do all staff need fire extinguisher training?

Yes. In addition, all staff need to know the entire contents of the fire emergency plan. This plan includes fire fighting equipment, evacuation plans and also disabled procedures.

Fire training is based on risk so training may be annually or even every two or three years.

This fire extinguisher course will help managers meet their legal fire duties regarding staff training.

For more information either call our team or send an email.

How many extinguishers do we need?

This will depend on the type of building,  activities carried out and also the level of risk.

Buildings with  100sq/m or less need one general purpose fire extinguisher. While buildings with more than 100 sq/m need one general purpose  extinguisher for every 200 sq /m.  Also, there must be a minimum of two extinguishers per floor.

In addition, to general purpose fire extinguishers, the building will need other fire extinguishers to cover other risks. So for example, an office will need carbon dioxide extinguishers and a commercial kitchen will require a wet chemical extinguishers.

Can we have a live fire extinguisher session?

Yes. Live fire training can be provided at workplaces. A suitable outside space is needed. The area must not less than five car park spaces in size and hard standing. Also, the are must also be away from a main road and the public cannot access the space. Furthermore, we need to be away from flammable and combustible areas. Finally, It also must not be near open windows and air intakes.
