Fire Safety Level 1

General Fire and Safety in England and Wales is maintained through compliance with the regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. The Legislation implements a risk based approach to fire safety in community, industrial and business premises.

It requires the responsible person (usually the employer, owner or occupier) to carry out a fire safety risk assessment and implement appropriate fire precautionary and protection measures and to maintain a fire management plan. All members of staff have a role to play in fire safety and the fire safety qualification support these various roles.

All individuals involved with fire safety must receive all the required information and training to deal with fire safety issues. Primus are pleased to be able to offer Level 1 and Level 2 Fire Safety qualifications on the QCF (Qualifications Credit Framework). The provision of these Fire Safety qualifications will assist organisations to meet their legal obligations as well as provide a much safer working environment for all of their employees.
