We can offer a full range of fire safety training in house, at your premises, to help you both comply with the law and keep your colleagues, customers and conference delegates safe, including fire warden courses in Harrogate.
Why do I need fire wardens?
Fire wardens are a statutory obligation under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. They are also a sensible part of your health and safety strategy and play a vital role in both preventing fires and preventing casualties if fire breaks out. Every company is required to appoint fire wardens, or fire marshals as they are sometimes called, in accordance with their fire risk assessment.
How many fire marshals do I need?
Your fire risk assessment is designed to analyse the risks from fire based on the size of your workforce, the nature of your business and the layout of your business premises. For example, a conference hall with a large number of delegates will require several fire wardens to affect a swift and safe evacuation. Similarly, a company with a range of stores, workshops and warehouses will need several fire wardens in order to check and clear all the different units.
