Training Course:

Fire Safety – FAA Level 2 (Level 5 Scotland) – 1 day

Course Introduction

This course is designed for employees to develop their basic fire safety awareness in order to assist their employer by undertaking more specific fire safety roles in the workplace to manage fire risk (e.g. as fire wardens/marshals/stewards etc.) Successful candidates will be awarded a national level 2 qualification (Level 5 in Scotland).

The effects of fire are potentially devastating in the workplace in terms of lives lost, injuries, damage to property and the environment, and to business continuity. It is believed that most fires are preventable. The importance of fire safety in the workplace is underpinned by health and safety legislation that places a duty on employers to establish policies and procedures and ensure their employees receive appropriate training.


A minimum of 6 contact hours in the classroom.


The qualification does not have an expiry date but refresher training and keeping up to date with changes to policies, procedures and new legislation through ongoing CPD is vital.

The qualification is assessed by a written assessment. A learner must successfully pass the written assessment to achieve the qualification.

A maximum of 16 students are allowed and must be a minimum of 14 years of age and a certificate can be offered to all, subject to assessment.

A student cannot assume a responsibility in the workplace until they reach the age of 16, and then it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the student is suitable for that role.


A range of subjects are covered including:

The hazards and risks associated with fire in the workplace
How fire risk is controlled in the workplace
The role of the nominated fire warden
The principles and practice of fire safety management at work
