Fire Marshal Training in Crawley
As a nominated fire warden or fire marshal, it is your job to encourage fire risk awareness and enforce fire safety within the workplace. You are responsible for checking fire doors and fire escape routes to make sure that they are clear of obstructions and easy to access if and when they are needed, as well as ensuring fire extinguishers are properly positioned and well maintained.
You are also required to step up when a fire occurs, confidently taking control to ensure the safe evacuation of all staff and visitors. You will then check the premises thoroughly to make sure everyone has left and no one requires extra assistance, before leaving and reporting in to the person in charge.
How Many Fire Marshals Are Required?
There are no set numbers of fire marshals required by law, but you are obliged to provide an appropriate number based on your fire risk assessment. This is based on factors such as your building layout, total number of staff and the nature of your business. As a rough guide, each separate building, floor or distinct area of your premises will require its own fire marshal, with deputies appointed to cover shifts and holidays so there is always a fully trained fire marshal available when the workplace is in use.
In House Training
We can prepare your staff for their role with four hours of fire warden training in Crawley, which covers all the essentials and is fully compliant with the law. For training to be as effective as possible, your staff need to see the real risks of their workplace. That’s why we always aim to deliver Crawley fire marshal training in house, using real life examples from your workplace, demonstrating actual escape routes and, where possible, demonstrating your fire fighting equipment. This is a very efficient and cost effective way to meet your statutory training obligations.
