Fire safety training for those working in mobile catering

UK Event Safety now offer a comprehensive fire safety training course, aimed at those working in the mobile catering trade, working at events, markets and festivals.

Legislation tells us that we all have to ensure that staff receive proper and suitable training in all aspects of their jobs and fire safety training is no exception. As described in full below, The Regulatory Reform Order (Fire Safety) 2005 says: "the responsible person must ensure that his employees are provided with adequate safety training...."

We feel that being able to share experiences and in some cases misfortunes can form the backbone of robust training and our recently compiled course not only encompasses every element that is required by current legislation but also gives students an insight into actual scenarios that that will thoroughly prepare them to face the worst situation should it arise.

Our instructor not only served as a fire officer for 30 years but is also a professional event safety manager working at festivals and shows throughout the UK.

The ‘lesson for life', aimed at those working in mobile catering at events & festivals, gives students information required by law and additional information relating to:

Fire safety & prevention
Fire in catering units
Fire extinguishers
