Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
The Fire Safety Order 2005 ‘tidied up’ UK fire regulations into a single piece of legislation that makes your statutory obligations clear. We have courses that help you meet all those obligations, from general fire awareness training in Colchester, to specialist courses such as fire marshal training.
Fire Marshal Training in Colchester
The role of fire warden or fire marshal is a voluntary one, but can make a huge difference, both in fire prevention and staff safety in fire emergencies. Day to day fire safety duties include encouraging fire risk awareness amongst staff, making sure escape routes and fire doors are kept clear and operational, and checking fire extinguishers are correctly positioned and correctly maintained.
Fire marshals will also take control in an emergency, assisting in the prompt evacuation of their nominated area and checking all offices and other rooms are clear, and windows and doors are shut, before reporting in to the person in charge or liaising with the emergency services.
How Many Fire Marshals Do I Need?
The Fire Safety Order identifies a need for fire marshals or fire wardens to be nominated to take on responsibilities for fire safety. The number of appointed people you need will depend on the type of premises you have and the risks involved in your business. You should carry out a fire risk assessment to identify the recommended number of fire marshals, and always appoint extra staff to cover for shift patterns, holidays and other absences.
In House Training
Our fire warden training in Colchester is designed to give your team the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to protect your premises and your people. It is a four hour course, with continuous assessment, leading to a recognised certificate of attendance. Since two buildings are the same, it makes sense to train your team in the fire safety of your particular premises on site, so that they can understand the real fire risks that are present and rehearse escape routes. All our Colchester fire marshal courses are available in house, at your premises, at your convenience, making fire safety as simple and effective as possible, while also saving you time and money.
