Fire disasters are well-known catastrophes throughout human history, with millions of people having faced their consequences, whether from natural or artificial sources. Throughout the evolution of human civilization, fires have caused the loss of human lives, wealth and infrastructure. Although the advancement in technology and scientific methods has brought out many positive changes in dealing with fires, there is still room for improvement. For example, the loopholes in managing and implementing the rules and regulations regarding fire safety are a big concern regarding public security in various countries. Even wealthy countries like the United States face these issues daily. The losses that occur due to fires in industrialized nations and developing countries are monetary and incur damage to basic infrastructure. Moreover, these incidents can leave an everlasting psychological impact on the victims.
Enterprises and businesses worldwide understand the importance of maintaining a robust fire safety and risk management system. For this purpose, employers will seek personnel well-versed in fire safety and risk management because these individuals understand the consequences they will face in the event of a fire. Fires are deadly for an organization's financial stability, and progress and can also distort its public image. A business's reputation can be damaged due to the assumption that they were careless about their safety and their employees’ safety.
This course comprises three comprehensive modules. The first module demonstrates the basics relating to fire hazards. You will explore the three most common reasons fires occur and the important scientific principles of the ‘fire triangle’ and ‘fire tetrahedron’. Moreover, it outlines the phenomenon of combustion and the classification of flames. The second module describes fire protection, prevention and suppression systems. It classifies fire extinguishers based on their content and colour codes. A brief fire safety guide provides fire safety practices for employees and employers and outlines a fire warden’s responsibilities. The final module discusses fire safety under three international frameworks: BS 9997, the Singaporean Civil Defense Force and the USA’s Organizational Safety and Health Act (OSHA).
