QFire can assist in ensuring that your workplace is fully compliant to the Building Fire Safety Regulation (BFSR). We specialise in providing services that are site-specific and designed to meet all your fire safety legislative requirements.
Fire Extinguisher Training / Fire Equipment Training
Hands-on instruction in the use of fire equipment is the best way to ensure that people will know what to do should fire occur. We can provide training in the use of all types of fire extinguishers, fire hose reels, fire blankets etc using a gas fired simulator to mimic a real life situation. This instruction will be done at your site by our highly qualified and experienced instructors.
