Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
Your obligations as an employer are laid out in the Fire Safety Order, including the requirement to provide fire awareness training for all staff and specialist fire warden training in Huddersfield for your appointed fire marshals or wardens. Our expert team will help you assess what training you need and work with you to create a convenient training programme that matches your shifts and your workflow.
Fire Marshal Training in Huddersfield
Fire marshals, or fire wardens, are an essential part of your fire safety team. They not only work proactively to prevent fires by reducing risks, they also take over in an emergency to ensure everyone leaves the building quickly but safely, reporting to the person in charge once the evacuation has been completed. Properly trained fire marshals can work to prevent fires by raising awareness amongst staff and visitors, and maintaining fire safety, such as keeping escape routes clear and checking fire safety equipment.
How Many Fire Marshals Do I Need?
The regulations require you to work out the number of fire marshals/ wardens required based on your fire risk assessment. The minimum you will need is two, to ensure that you have a back up in case of absence through illness or holidays. You also need to ensure that your appointed fire warden / marshal does not leave the premises, or has a deputy to cover if they do. Companies with multiple buildings or multiple floors will require one fire warden per section.
In House Training
It takes just four hours to complete fire warden training in Huddersfield, with in house training preparing you for any situation that may occur. The course is assessed as you go along, with no need for a formal test at the end. Candidates who complete the course and meet the requirements will be presented with a certificate of attendance, which meets your legal requirements.
Most of our Huddersfield fire safety training is carried out on site, so that we can show your staff where the risks are in their own workplace and the safest route for emergency evacuation. In house training is also better value and less disruptive for your company.
