Barnsley is currently enjoying significant changes with a number of new shopping and leisure projects springing up across the town. We’re here to help you make the most of this renaissance with a full range of fire safety training courses to help you comply with HSE rules and create a safer workplace for your staff and visitors. This includes fire warden courses in Barnsley for your appointed staff, to teach them all they need to know to protect your people and property.
Why do I need fire wardens?
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005brought together a wide range of different safety legislation into a single act, making it easier to understand your obligations. One of the requirements of this Order is that you appoint fire wardens, or fire marshals, to take responsibility for reducing risks and facilitating a safe evacuation in an emergency.
How Many Fire Marshals Do I Need?
The Order requires that you undertake a fire risk assessment and appoint the number of fire wardens this assessment suggests. This will be based on the risk level of your workplace, the number of staff and buildings and whether or not you run shifts. There is no set number of fire wardens, but the Order does offers recommendation. If you do not comply, you face serious consequences, including prosecution and fines from the HSE.
Fire Marshal Training inBarnsley
We offer comprehensive fire marshal courses in Barnsley covering everything you need to meet your obligations and keep your staff safe. We deliver training in house, so that your team can learn in the actual environment where they will be called upon to use their skills, pointing out the real life risks. This not only makes the training more effective, but it is also more convenient for your staff and more cost effective for your company.
About the course
The course covers both aspects of the fire warden role. We discuss the day to day routines of checking escape routes, raising awareness and reducing risks, as well as the role of the fire warden in an emergency situation, clearing their appointed section and checking everyone is out safely.
The course takes just four hours and can be arranged to suit your workload. We use a system of continual assessment, not only to avoid the need for a final exam, but also to ensure that all candidates have understood each section of the course before we move on. All successful candidates will leave the course with a certificate of attendance, which complies with current HSE requirements.
