Fire Safety

All of our Fire Safety qualifications are based on National Occupational Standards (NOS) related to fire safety and recommended good practice by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and these qualifications are regulated by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) in England and Wales and certificated for 3 years via our Awarding Organisation, Qualsafe Awards.

Level 2 Award in Fire Safety (RQF)

This qualification is specifically designed for anyone who is responsible for fire safety in their workplace, such as designated fire wardens/fire marshals.


Understanding the role of a fire warden/fire marshal is a key component of this qualification, but it also includes how fires are caused, the risks associated with fire and what we can do to control fire risks in the workplace. It also covers the principles of fire safety management at work, fire safety inspection, fire safety risk assessment and the legal requirements related to fire safety in the workplace.
