Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
UK fire regulations were brought together into a single Order in 2005, setting out your responsibilities and obligations as an employer. This includes the appointment and training of fire wardens or fire marshals and the provision of fire awareness training in Middlesborough for all members of staff. We can create courses to help you comply with all your mandatory requirements under the order, keeping your people and your premises safe.
Fire Marshal Training in Middlesborough
One of your main obligations under the Fire Safety Order is to nominate and arrange training for fire marshals or fire wardens. These are usually volunteers who undergo extra training to help ensure the safety of their company and their colleagues. The role of the fire marshal is twofold, covering both day to day fire prevention, and appropriate action during an emergency.
Day to day, fire marshals are expected to promote fire risk awareness amongst their colleagues, as well as maintain a safe environment by checking fire doors, exit routes and fire fighting equipment. When a fire occurs, it is their responsibility to make sure that their appointed area is cleared promptly and safely and that no one remains in the section.
How Many Fire Marshals Do I Need?
The guidelines for your fire risk assessment will help you to decide how many fire marshals or fire wardens you need to appoint. This will take into account the fire risks of your activities, the number of staff and visitors present and the physical layout of your company buildings. As a general rule, you will need one fire marshal for every floor or separate building, or for every 50-100 people. You also need to appoint extra fire wardens to step in when others are away from the workplace.
In House Training
The fire warden training in Middlesborough is a four hour course that will equip your appointed staff members with all the necessary skills a fire marshal needs. All candidates are continually assessed and presented with a certificate of attendance on completion of the course.
Arranging your fire marshal training in Middlesborough in house allows your team to see how the principles apply to their own working environment. In house training is also more convenient for staff and more cost effective for employers, cutting out the time and expense of travel to a training centre.
