One of the first industrialised towns in the world, Blackburn has been a significant employer for over two hundred years. Today it is home to a diverse range of companies, each with their own unique fire safety needs. We have the experience and expertise to deliver training that is both compliant with the regulations and tailored to your specific industry and even your individual premises.
Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
Blackburn’s businesses may be diverse, but they all must comply with the Fire Safety Order. This involves conducting a fire risk assessment and appointing the required number of fire marshals or fire wardens this assessment suggests. The order also prescribes the general fire awareness training that should be offered to all employees.
How Many Fire Marshals Do I Need?
The number of fire marshals or fire wardens you need will depend on your fire risk assessment. A small building with just one staircase may only require a single fire marshal, however larger buildings, or companies spread across multiple buildings will need a fire marshal for each floor or spate building. You will also need cover for sickness, holidays and periods of absence.
Fire Marshal Training in Blackburn
Our fire warden training in Blackburn is designed to help your appointed fire marshals or fire wardens to fulfil their role, both on a day to day basis and in an emergency situation. Day to day, fire wardens are responsible for maintaining fire safety, such as checking escape routes are clear and fire doors are not propped or wedged open. In an emergency, they are responsible for clearing their appointed area of your premises, assisting those who require extra help and reporting to the person in charge once their area has been cleared. We will give them the knowledge and confidence they need to take charge and ensure a safe evacuation.
About the course
The course takes just four hours and is continually assessed to ensure that candidates have understood their role and responsibilities. There is not formal exam or test at the end. Where possible we will include demonstrations of passive fire prevention equipment, fire alarms and fire fighting equipment. The course is fully compliant with your legal obligations and all candidates will receive a certificate of attendance.
In House Training
Training using theory alone will never have the same impact as showing your staff the real fire risks present in their workplace. That’s why all of our courses are available in house, delivering fire marshal training in the actual place where it will be used. The added advantage of in house training is that it can be tailored to your shifts and workload, minimising both costs and disruption.
