Health and Safety FAQs

What is fire safety?

Fire safety is a set of procedures which aim to reduce the amount of damage and injuries caused by fires.

These include risk assessments to help identify and reduce areas of fire risk and formulate an emergency and evacuation plan in the event that a fire does break out.

Meet Fire Safety training requirements with our online course here.

What is the difference between a fire warden and a fire marshal?

For most businesses, there is little difference between the roles, but at more complex workplaces, both will be needed.

The fire warden is responsible for searching and clearing the premises, while the fire marshal is responsible for checking that everyone (including the warden) is at the assembly point.

Learn more about the role of a Fire Marshal and Fire Warden with our online training package here.

How often is PAT testing required for landlords?

There is no legal requirement as a landlord to carry out PAT testing, but it is your responsibility to ensure the safety of your tenants by providing safe living conditions and PAT testing is a great way to manage electrical related risks.

A PAT test is a legal requirement if you have a House in Multiple occupation (HMO) and you should carry out an inspection every five years.

Learn how to carry out portable appliance testing (PAT) with our online training here.

How do you safely push and pull?

For pushing, you need to keep your back straight and bend your knees without twisting at your hips to push, but rather keep your core tight and use your legs and body weight to move the object.

Always face the object you are pulling and take small, backward steps once you start to move.

Correctly handling loads whilst lifting is crucial for your safety, learn more with our manual handling online course here.
