The Safest Way to deal with Fire is to prevent it!

Advanced Fire Protection would like to introduce our new tailored training programs to help smart businesses comply with legislation.

Health and Safety Legislation
The Safety, Health, and Welfare at Work Act 2005 (the 2005 Act) state that employers must ‘ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the safety, health, and welfare at work of his or her employees. The person in control to any extent of the workplace should ensure a safe workplace, safe access, safe egress and safe articles or substances.

Section 8 of this Act also requires employers to obtain, where necessary, the services of a competent person. A definition of a competent person is in Section 2(2) of the 2005 Act. – a competent person should possess sufficient training, experience, and knowledge having regard to the task and the size or hazards (or both) of the undertaking.

Suitability must be assessed in light of the specific intended functions. The competent person should demonstrate knowledge of current best practices in the sector and be prepared to supplement gaps in training. The appointment of a competent person does not absolve the employer of his or her responsibilities under the legislation.

Sections 8, 9, and 10 of this 2005 Act require that sufficient information, training, and supervision is provided to ensure the safety of employees and also that such instruction, training, etc. must take account of any employees with specific needs to ensure their protection against dangers that may affect them.

Advanced Fire Protection is here to help you in this regard. Our tailored programs are available to all our customers.
