Fire represents one of the greatest dangers to human lives. It destroys facilities and everything else in its way, and can result in immense financial and personal losses. Fire prevention and protection is essential to prevent fire and mitigate its impacts. It is thanks to fire prevention activities such as smoke alarm installations and fire safety education that deaths and injuries caused by residential fires have declined over the past several decades. There is no additional need to emphasise that it is very important to train staff in fire safety management, so that they can identify potential safety risks and react appropriately in case of an emergency. Fire safety begins with the readiness of all employees to do everything that is necessary to avoid the outbreak of a fire and to immediately take counteractions if a fire starts.
What will the participants learn?
Fire safety in facilities is always based on an integrated fire safety design, which includes measures of fire prevention and protection. Components of such a design are structural fire safety (e.g. fire-rated walls and doors), technical measures (e.g. fire alarm systems and sprinkler systems) and operational procedures (e.g. training of staff and employees, fire safety management).
