Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
Fire is a risk for any kind of business, from futuristic manufacturing to traditional industries, and so all employers are covered by the Fire Safety Order 2005. This covers your statutory obligations under the law, including carrying out a fire risk assessment, training your team and nominating fire marshals to take responsibility in an emergency situation.
Fire Marshal Training in Gloucester
Fire marshals can make a real difference to the safety of your people and premises, preventing fires from occurring and even saving lives when they do. They hold responsibility for daily checks of escapes routes and fire doors, as well as maintaining a more general awareness of fire risks in the workplace and the actions required by all staff to reduce these risks.
In an emergency, the fire marshal takes responsibility for their appointed section, checking room by room to ensure it has been completely evacuated, including refuge areas where people may require extra help. They are also required to close doors and windows where this is safe, and turn off as much equipment as possible, without delaying their own escape.
How Many Fire Marshals Do I Need?
The number of fire marshals or fire wardens that you need will be shown by your fire risk assessment, and each one will need appropriate training that complies with the law. You need to ensure that your premises are appropriately covered with sufficient staff to facilitate a safe evacuation, as well as deputies to cover for holidays and sickness.
