  • About This Course
  • Legislation

The BDJ in Practice, November 2015 reported:

'Over one-third of UK employees say that have not received appropriate training from their employer. And the recent survey by IronmongeryDirect of 100 employees also found that many employees did not know what they should do if the fire alram sounded.'

All dental practices are legally required by the Fire Safety Regulations (Fire Safety) Order 2005 to provide information, instruction and training to employees about fire precautions in the workplace.
