Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
The Fire Safety Order brought together a wide range of fire rules and regulations into a single act to make your obligations as an employer clearer and easier to follow. We’ll help you meet those obligations with a range of courses tailored to your exact needs, from general fire awareness training for all staff, to specific training for fire wardens in Birkenhead.
Fire Marshal Training in Birkenhead
A fire marshal, often called a fire warden, carries a number of responsibilities, ranging from daily fire prevention and education, to taking control of evacuations in the event of a fire breaking out. The role of the fire marshal is to create a culture of fire safety, raising risk awareness and checking fire precautions are being correctly observed. This includes clearing escape routes and checking fire extinguishers are in the right place and properly serviced.
It is the fire marshal’s responsibility to sweep through their appointed area during a fire drill or real emergency, to make sure it is empty and everyone has safely left the building, including staff who require extra assistance.
How Many Fire Marshals Do I Need?
Your fire risk assessment will help you decide on the number of fire marshals you need. This is a common sense calculation based on the layout of your buildings and the nature of the work being done. Bear in mind that you also need extra fire wardens to cover for staff who are away from the premises through work, leave or illness.
