The NEBOSH Fire Safety and Risk Management Certificate course is an industry-leading qualification that more than 10,000 people have passed.

With the help of our experienced trainers and informal training atmosphere, we will give you the knowledge needed to carry out effective fire risk assessments and establish good fire management practices in the workplace. All from the comfort of a COVID-19 secure classroom.

Who can benefit from NEBOSH fire safety training?

The course is designed for managers and supervisors who are responsible for ensuring that their organisation adheres to fire safety legislation. It is also for individuals who wish to build a career as a fire safety adviser.

The course is also of benefit to delegates who have already passed the NEBOSH General and / or NEBOSH Construction Certificate courses and wish to continue with their learning and enhance their portfolio of qualifications.

The qualification equips your staff with the necessary skills and knowledge to carry out fire risk assessments across a variety of workplaces. By the end of the course, they will also be able to identify and implement a range of fire prevention measures.

How can employers’ benefit from this NEBOSH course?

Organisations with staff who have undergone the training can rely on a safer environment for employees and visitors.

As part of this course, we also focus on creating the right fire safety culture. This can play a major role in helping to avoid the damaging and, sometimes, catastrophic losses that can result from fire.

Can a NEBOSH Fire Safety Certificate lead to other qualifications?

NEBOSH Fire Safety Certificate holders can apply for technical membership of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (Tech IOSH).

Many students also progress to the NEBOSH National Diploma (Grad IOSH) and, from there, to chartered status (CMIOSH).
