Fire safety training

Established in 1995, the Commercial Fire Training Unit exists within Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service and has a direct link to Oxfordshire County Council. The Unit delivers a variety of Fire Safety training in Oxfordshire to a wide range of businesses and institutions within Oxfordshire.

We can also provide Fire Safety training in Gloucestershire (North East area) and Wiltshire (North East area), however, we recommend you contact your local Fire Brigade in the first instance.

All our courses can be tailored to your needs and delivered at your premises (subject to required terms and conditions). We also offer scheduled an 'open' Fire Marshal course at a variety of venues located around Oxfordshire.

Dave Etheridge, Chief Fire Officer for Oxfordshire County Council, highlights the importance of fire safety within an organisation's premises.

Hello, I’m Dave Etheridge, Chief Fire Officer and Head of Community Safety for Oxfordshire County Council.

As the Chief Fire Officer, I’m directly responsible for ensuring that we can help make Oxfordshire safer for those who live, work and travel.

You may be familiar with our 365Alive campaign - our approach towards making a safer society through community education and preventative activities.

I am very proud to say that, to date, through working with the public, Oxfordshire Fire & Rescue Service has helped reduce those killed and injured in fires as well as those killed and seriously injured on our roads.

Whilst most fires do occur in people’s homes, they can and do also occur in business premises including offices, shops, factory units and also commercial outlets, schools and health units.

The 'Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order 2005', or FSO as it is sometimes referred to, places a duty on the Responsible Person of a non-domestic premises.  This can include far beyond the actual building itself.

Training your staff is a vital way of ensuring that your business remains safer.  And this is whereOxfordshire County Council can help you.

With the council’s direct links into Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service, our dedicated team of trainers can draw upon their significant knowledge and indeed their fire-fighting experiences, to ensure that we can deliver first class training to your premises right across the county.

These are just some of the organisations that we’ve trained, either at their site for maximum convenience or at one of our serviced sites around the county.

We are here to help and support your business and to ensure that we can continue to help make Oxfordshire a safer place for those who travel, live and work in our county.So if you’re a person who is responsible for a business, if you’re a person who is responsible for the safety of both your employees and  visitors, then ensure that you are familiar with this (the 'Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order 2005’).

Thank you for watching.
