For any business small or large the risk of a fire is a huge concern as it can result in operational disruption, property loss, injury, or worse a fatality. There are measures that businesses can put in place to prevent fires however, it is important that business owners and facility managers recognise the value of investing in staff fire safety training.

Employers have a duty of care and OH&S legislation stipulates that a person conducting a business must ensure the health and safety of their employees, so far as is reasonably practicable. This includes the provision of any necessary information, training, instruction or supervision.
