Fire Safety

Nebosh Brochure


As per Indian Factories Act, all practicable measures shall be taken to prevent outbreak of fire and its spread. Organizations must provide and maintain:-

  • Safe means of escape for all persons in the event of fire, and
  • The necessary equipments and facilities for extinguishing fire.

In practical, organizations have fire extinguishers strategically placed throughout the workplace but that is not enough to ensure safety. Fire safety goes far beyond having fire extinguishers at workplace and this training allows candidates to develop their basic fire safety awareness. It is very important to ensure safety of building occupants since fire scenarios create panic and this training helps building competence. Actions of employees during fire remain crucial to their safety and that of other people in the premises. Therefore, employees must be well familiar with fire preventive measures and basic emergency procedures.

NIST delivers training on fire safety to more than 5000 workers annually in India and abroad from marine, oil & gas, steel, rail, telecom, construction, textile, aviation, power, automobile, chemical and service industries.
