Does my company need fire wardens?
Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, every company must appoint at least one fire warden to oversee day to day fire risk reduction and to take charge of evacuations should fire break out. As well as being a legal requirement, fire wardens, often called fire marshals, are an essential part of your health and safety plans, sharing the responsibility for keeping your workers and their workplace safe.
How Many Fire Marshals Do I Need?
There are no hard and fast rules on the number of fire wardens you need, but the Order provides guidelines based on the type of work you do, the number of staff you employ and the layout of your premises and workshops. The higher the risks of your operations or the more diverse your premises, the more fire wardens you will need. It is important to remember that you also need cover for holidays, sickness and shifts.
Fire Marshal Training inHarlow
Our fire marshal courses in Harlow are designed to fully satisfy the requirements of the law, as well as giving your team the knowledge and skills they need to fulfil their role effectively. The course covers both the day to day responsibilities, such as fire risk reduction and maintenance of evacuation routes, as well as how to act in an emergency.
About the course
Training takes just four hours and is normally conducted in-house. Experience tells us that training in-house is far more effective, as future fire marshals can see for themselves the kinds of risks that are present in their workplace, and the sort of issues that could arise during an evacuation. Training in real life situations can save crucial minutes during an emergency, which can make all the difference. It also saves time and money for the company. Everyone who completes the course will legally be able to act as a fire marshal and will hold a certificate of attendance.
