What are my statutory obligations?
Under the Order, companies are obliged to identify and mitigate fire risks on their premises. This includes carrying out a fire risk assessment and appointing fire marshals or fire wardens to monitor fire safety.
All businesses must have fire wardens, even where there is no apparent risk of fire, such as a small office or shop. Businesses with greater risk, such as manufacturing plants, will need more wardens, as will larger companies and companies spread out over several buildings. We will be happy to work with you to decide on an appropriate level of cover for your company.
What is the role of the fire warden?
The fire warden takes on responsibility for fire safety in their appointed section of the company. This may be the floor of an office, a section of a manufacturing plant or a complete workshop or warehouse. Their job is to maintain fire readiness, by clearing exits, unblocking fire doors and checking fire fighting equipment. In the event of a fire, their job is to get everyone out as quickly as possible, assisting anyone who needs help and checking carefully that no one is trapped inside.
