Ready, aim – extinguish!

We’re on fire when it comes to training!

Across Oaklea Group we have been updating our fire safety today – by getting a refresher on how to stay safe and using fire extinguishers.

Ian Berry has all angles covered & years of experience in the Fire Service having served in both Barrow & Kendal Fire Stations. Now he is all about prevention – offering training to organisations like Oaklea & Right2Work. New legislation was introduced in 2005 for mandatory fire training following the deaths of people at a care home in Scotland. Responsibility starts with us…

Last month Ian also took some of our Barrow based employees through the training.

Team Manager, Zoe Jones: “We had fire extinguisher training in Barrow with Ian for staff and some of our customers. It was excellent – fun and learning at the same time and putting ourselves and customers safety first.”

Oaklea Director Alex Wolfenden. “Fire safety is so important and necessary in all our work locations in order to prevent and protect against the devastation that could be caused by fire. We want to ensure a safe environment for all our customers and employees and fire safety awareness training is one of the many measures we take to actively engage our teams in awareness and fire prevention.”
