Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
The Fire Safety Order is designed to promote just that, fire safety, with a series of rules and regulations designed to keep your workplace and your workforce safe, including an obligation to appoint and train fire marshals or fire wardens within the workplace. We’ll help you understand what you are required to do under the order, and provide all the fire safety training in Cheltenham that you need to fully comply.
Fire Marshal Training in Cheltenham
Fire wardens, or fire marshals, are a key component of your fire safety policy. They work constantly with their colleagues to promote fire awareness and educate them in ways to cut fire risks, as well as checking that evacuation routes are kept clear, fire doors are free of obstructions and fire extinguishers are in the right location and correctly maintained.
Fire marshals are also essential in an emergency situation, taking control confidently, guiding colleagues and visitors out of the building and making sure everyone is safe before checking room by room to ensure no one has been left behind.
How Many Fire Marshals Do I Need?
You need enough fire marshals to cover each building or each major floor of your premises, along with others to provide cover during their absence. Your fire risk assessment will guide you on the recommended numbers, taking into account the risk level of your business as well as the number and distribution of your staff.
