In smaller organisations, the responsibility for first aid and fire prevention is often entrusted to one person. This course combines both: you learn the basics of first aid and firefighting. After this course, you will know what to do in case of an accident or when a fire starts.


In smaller organisations, first-aid care and fire prevention duties are often entrusted to a single person who needs to have the required skills and knowledge. In this course, you acquire the relevant skills in one day so that you can take appropriate action in the event of an accident or starting a fire.

If you are only looking for a course in emergency assistance or fire safety, you can also follow these separately.

What do you learn?

This combi is a combination of the training courses in first aid and fire security with the use of small fire extinguishers.

You learn the basic principles and skills of first aid. Topics include: basic hygiene, analysing the situation, procedures, administering care before evacuation and the basics of first aid (bleeding, wounds, burns, etc.).

After that, you work with small extinguishers to learn skills in the field of fire safety.

For whom?

For employees who are responsible for both first aid and fire prevention in small organisations that do not have a certified first aider.

What does the law say?

As an employer of a company with fewer than 20 employees (i.e. group D), you must ensure that there is always one or more employees present in the workplace to administer first aid in case of an accident or health problem (the 'designated persons'). A first aid certificate is not required but they must have mastered the basic principles and skills of first aid.

Know that first aid must always be guaranteed. That means at night too in the case of shift work.

Mensura is listed by the Federal Public Service on Employment, Labour and Social Dialogue (FPS WASO) as a training institution that provides this refresher course.

Each company is legally required to have an in-house firefighting service. It consists of several employees who act efficiently in the event of a fire (hazard). The size of your organisation is irrelevant to this requirement.

A risk analysis determines how many employees the firefighting service must contain. This depends on your company size, type of business operations and the fire risk.

As an employer, you are legally obligated to provide members of the firefighting service with the necessary training. Raising awareness is important to inform all other employees of fire hazards, what to do in the event of a fire and how to evacuate.
