Fire kills. Understanding fire safety can be the difference between life or death. Your employer is legally required to provide information, instruction and training about fire precautions in the workplace. Failure to do so could lead to prosecution, but more importantly fatalities.
While your employer has a duty of care, you also have a duty to keep yourselves safe. Would you know what to do in a fire? Making informed decisions is vital and every second counts in an emergency.
