Fire Safety – Personal Emergency Evacuation Plans

Event/course Code HLTH 19/054
Event/course type Training course
Event Introduction Under current fire safety legislation it is the obligation of the person(s) having responsibility for the building to provide a fire safety risk assessment that includes an emergency evacuation plan for all people likely to be in the premises, including disabled people, and how that plan will be implemented (HM Government, 2007).

As the responsible person for the building you must:
• carry out a fire risk assessment of the premises and review it regularly
• tell staff or their representatives about the risks you’ve identified
• put in place, and maintain, appropriate fire safety measures
plan for an emergency
• provide staff information, fire safety instruction and training

Managing those with disabilities, be it permanent or temporary (broken leg or ankle!), is essential in the first few minutes of an evacuation. Where time is critical practitioners must not rely on their best instincts, but instead follow the clear practices each organisation or setting has. To assist practitioners this course will look at setting up and delivering a personal evacuation plan, as well as looking at the various methods of implementing a Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP).
Event Content We are all aware of the danger of fire. Fire does kill and managers of premises need to be aware of how to effectively and safely evacuate a building.

Fire Rescue Statistics shows 563,527 incidents were attended in the year ending December 2017. Of these incidents fires accounted for 30%, fire false alarms 40% and non-fire incidents for 30%.

According to Fire Rescue Statistics, an attendance of 169,588 fires in the year ending December 2017. This was a four per cent increase compared with the previous year (162,427).

There were 74,667 primary fires in the year ending December 2017 (44% of the 169,588 fires attended). Fire Rescue Statistics reported an attendance of 30,340 primary dwelling fires in the year ending December 2017.

RB Health and Safety Solutions Ltd began trading in 2003. We have extensive knowledge of the subject and this training is delivered by highly professional fire safety officers with over 15 years experience in operational fire safety, who not only understand the subject well but have experience in implementing the subject and have seen both bad and good practices whereby employers have implemented effective PEEP’s in emergency situations, as well as having seen PEEP’s fail badly when they matter most. All trainers teaching this course hold professional qualifications in Fire Safety or Fire Service College training. Our course is tailored to the early years environment, giving real world examples of the types issues the staff are likely to encounter when evacuating in early years settings (such as shortage of staff, finding suitable safe areas to wait, communications etc). In addition many of the trainers deliver evacuation chair training so can give candidates recommendations on which chairs are the most appropriate for their settings if needed.
Event Learning Outcomes By the end of the course participants will be able to:

• Identify where a PEEP is required in their workplaces.
• Undertake and complete a PEEP.
• Identify suitable equipment to assist individuals with mobility problems,
• Explain how they intend to introduce a ‘buddy system’ where appropriate.
• Describe the importance of completing PEEPs.
• Recognise the significance for primary and secondary school environments
• Recognise the importance for workplaces such as offices, libraries, youth centres, nurseries, etc.
