You have a number of obligations both to your workforce and to the visitors to your premises, and these are outlined in the Fire Safety Order of 2005. This explains the need for general fire awareness training in Rochdale, as well as your obligation to provide fire marshals or fire wardens to promote fire safety.
Fire Marshal Training in Rochdale
When it comes to an emergency situation, fire marshals, or fire wardens will take over, guiding everyone to safety and ensuring your company fire protocols are followed. This includes checking their designated area is clear, assisting anyone who needs additional help and reporting in to the responsible person.
Fire marshals also have a role to play in day-to-day fire awareness and risk reduction, keeping passageways and escape routes clear and educating their co-workers in fire risks and how to avoid them.
How Many Fire Marshals Do I Need?
The nature of your business, the size of your staff and the layout of your premises will all play a part in determining how many fire marshals you need. Higher risk industries, larger companies or businesses with a diverse range of buildings may need many fire marshals, while a simple shop or office may only need one. Remember, you will also need deputies to cover for holidays and other absences. There are no set rules on the number of fire marshals required, however, you will find worked examples in the fire risk assessment guides. It is up to you to determine the number of fire marshals you need based on your own fire risk assessment.
