Fire safety is a fundamental part of any business, and training is the cornerstone of implementing any fire safety policy. Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 legislation requires employers to provide training for all employees.

With SS Systems, you are in the right place for this critical fire safety training. With over 25 years Fire and Security experience, BAFE SP203-1 Registered & Third Party Accredited, we are ideally suited to train you and your staff.

As a recent consequence of Brexit and Furlough, many companies have seen a variety of staff disruptions. One result these staff changes can bring is a lack of fire training knowledge within your company.

Maybe now is the time to re-evaluate your staff fire training requirements.

Why is fire safety important in the workplace?

Not only do we want our employees to feel comfortable and happy whilst at work but at the same time SAFE.

Fires cause severe injury and even death.

According to an HSE statistic, one person dies each week due to a fire-related accident.

Make sure you and your staff are not part of this statistic.
