Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
The need for fire marshals, sometimes called fire wardens, is laid out clearly in the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order of 2005. Under this landmark legislation, employers are obliged to undertake a fire risk assessment and to act on the measures this recommends. Failure to comply not only puts your company at risk of prosecution from the HSE, but also risks damage to your property, disruption to your business and could even risk loss of life.
Fire Marshal Training in Hull
The role of the fire marshal is twofold; promoting fire safety and reducing risks day to day, and stepping up to take control in an emergency.
Day to day, your fire marshal will encourage colleagues to think about fire safety, pointing out risks and teaching fire safe behaviours. They will also check that fire provisions are in place and effective, including checking escape routes, fire doors and fire fighting equipment.
In the event of an actual fire, the fire marshal plays a key role in getting everyone out safely and confirming this with a thorough sweep of their designated area. They may also have to report to the fire services with any information they need to fight the fire safely.
How Many Fire Marshals Do I Need?
The number of fire marshals required is not fixed, but instead is guided by your fire risk assessment. The number of appointed persons will depend on the nature and risk level of your business, the number of employees and visitors and the layout of your premises. We will be happy to help you decide how muchHull fire warden training you need.
