Our Level 2 Award in Fire Risk Assessment is designed to give learners a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of fire safety and highlights the competencies required of fire risk assessors.
Each year, people die or are seriously injured as a result of fires at work. In addition to the tragic loss of life and personal suffering, fire costs UK businesses millions of pounds from damage to property, loss of business, fines, compensation claims and increased insurance premiums.
Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, the responsibility for fire risk assessment in any workplace lies with the ‘responsible person’ and they will be held accountable. The online assessment task relates directly to the candidate’s workplace and tests the application of learning in a practical context.
