Fire Safety Training
No two workplaces are the same, which is why Form1 takes a flexible approach to fire safety training. Within the framework, outlined in the Australian Standards, Form1 will tailor solutions to the specific needs of your business and team. Should it be required, training sessions can be delivered during evenings, or on weekends. Form1’s training presentations can be designed to suit your site specific needs and incorporate fire response procedures, fire evacuation training, fire officer training, and warden training. Fire safety training sessions can be provided as theoretical, practical, or a combination of both.
Form1 have an enviable record of providing fire safety and awareness training in public and private hospitals and health care facilities. Warden training is recommended annually under AS 3745-2010 for all workplaces.
