Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
You can check out all your regulatory responsibilities by consulting the Fire Safety Order 2005, which outlines what you must do as an employer to protect your people and premises. This includes the provision of basic fire awareness training in High Wycombe, as well as the nomination and training of fire wardens or fire marshals.
How Many Fire Marshals Do I Need?
There are no set numbers of fire marshals or fire wardens, and it is up to you to decide on how many you need based on your formal fire risk assessment. This includes considering the nature of your business, the number of people working in that business and the layout of your workplaces. There are recommendations available to guide you, but in essence, you need one fire marshal for every building, or every floor or distinct areas of larger buildings, plus cover for holidays and shifts.
Fire Marshal Training in High Wycombe
Fire marshals are your first line of defence against fire. They work to reduce fire risks and raise awareness of fire hazards to cut the number of incidents. They aim to keep the workplace safe and ensure that staff can evacuate promptly in an emergency. They are also responsibility for checking and maintaining fire extinguishers.
Fire marshals also play an important role in evacuating staff and visitors should such incidents occur. Confidently taking charge, they encourage everyone to leave as quickly as possible, assisting those who have special needs, then check their designated area to make sure it is clear before reporting their progress to the appropriate person.
