Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
Our comprehensive range of courses is based on your obligations, as outlined in the Fire Safety Order 2005, which lists the responsibilities of every employer. These responsibilities include carrying out a fire risk assessment and appointing the recommended number of fire marshals or fire wardens that the assessment suggests.
How Many Fire Marshals Do I Need?
The number of fire marshals recommended by your fire risk assessment will depend on the nature of your business, the number of staff you have and the details of your location. Larger companies, with more staff and more buildings, or floors within their buildings, will need more fire marshals, while smaller, low risk companies with limited premises may only need one fire marshal, plus cover for sickness and holidays.
Fire Marshal Training in Exeter
The role of fire warden or fire marshal is a voluntary one, and is carried out in addition to normal work roles. Day to day it involves reducing fire risks and educating colleagues on fire prevention, as well as maintaining clear evacuation routes and ensuring that nothing obstructs fire doors.
In the event of a fire, marshals or wardens will take charge of their appointed area, using their skills and knowledge to ensure the safety of everyone around them. After encouraging a prompt evacuation, fire marshals will check that their section has been fully cleared and is as safe as possible before confirming this to the person in charge.
In House Training
Fire warden training in Exeter only requires half a day, but could make all the difference, as our expert training team take your volunteers through everything they need to know to protect your people and your premises. The course is monitored by continual assessment and leads to a recognised certificate of attendance, which fully meets your legal obligations.
It is important to remember that theory and practice are very different things, and when it comes to overseeing a safe evacuation, practice makes perfect. That’s why we offer all our fire marshal training in Exeter in house, so the workplace becomes the classroom and your team can practice their actual escape routes and become familiar with the location and operation of all fire fighting equipment.
