8 September 2023 Fire Safety

Fires can break out anywhere and at any time. Whether in the workplace, in public buildings or in homes - a quick response to a fire is crucial to protect human lives and avoid property damage.

A fire drill makes it possible to act correctly in an emergency without panicking. It thus ensures that everyone involved knows how to use a fire extinguisher effectively.

Fire extinguishing exercise in the company

The employer is obliged to take appropriate fire prevention measures. In organisational fire protection, this includes both the training of fire protection assistants and annual fire protection instruction for all employees. The practical fire extinguishing exercise is part of the professional training.

Important: The fire extinguishing exercise in the company is also anchored in law. For example, §10 ArbSchG, ASR A 2.2 and DGUV Information 205-023 require regular practice in the correct use of fire extinguishers.

Components of a fire extinguishing exercise

Löschübung vom Profi-CWS Fire Safety

During a fire extinguishing exercise, the participants learn about the different types of fire extinguishers and areas of application both theoretically and practically. Thus, the participants learn the correct handling of different fire extinguishers on a realistic open fire at the Fire-Trainer.

Good to know: The Fire-Trainer is controlled by the trainer and enables different fire scenarios (e.g. fire of a waste bin or monitor).

In addition, special fire scenarios are presented during the fire drill. These usually include the demonstration of a grease and spray can explosion.
