These include general fire safety training as well as highly specific fire warden courses in Crewe designed to meet your statutory obligations under the Fire Safety order of 2005.
What are my statutory obligations for fire safety?
According to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, you are obliged to take all reasonable steps to protect your staff and premises from the risk of fire. This includes carrying out a fire risk assessment and nominating and training fire wardens, or fire marshals, to work to reduce these risks.
Failure to comply with the requirements of the Order can expose your company to prosecution and fines, as well as significantly increasing the risks of fire.
How many fire wardens do I need?
The number of fire wardens you should have will depend on the risk level identified. This is influenced by factors such as your business type, staff numbers and the layout of your premises. You need to have enough fire wardens to cover all areas and evacuate all members of staff swiftly and safely.
What does a fire warden do?
A fire warden works as part of your overall fire safety strategy to cut the risk of fire in the workplace and cut the risk to staff should fire break out. This includes a range of duties from checking escape routes are not blocked, to a room by room search following a fire alarm.
