Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
We will work closely with you to ensure that your company is fully compliant with the Fire Safety Order. Failure to comply not only puts your people and premises at risk, but also leaves you open to prosecution and potential fines, so it is worthwhile understanding and acting on the Order.One of your main obligations under the Order is to nominate the appropriate number of staff members as fire wardens or fire marshals.
How Many Fire Marshals Do I Need?
Your requirement for fire marshals is based on your fire risk assessment, and is influenced by a number of factors including the risks involved in your business operations, the number of employees or visitors you have and the layout of your buildings. As a rough guide, you will need at least one fire marshal for each floor or distinct area of your premises, or for each 50-100 people, depending on the risk level. You also need cover for any absences such as sickness, holidays of business trips. The fire risk assessment guidelines will help you decide on the appropriate number of fire marshals for your business.
Fire Marshal Training in Rotherham
Fire marshals are usually volunteers who take on extra responsibilities to protect your company from fire and take charge during emergency situations.On a day to day basis, they will work to raise fire awareness and reduce fire risks, as well as maintaining safe evacuation routes and ensuring that fire doors and final exit doors are not blocked.
In an emergency, trained fire marshals are responsible for clearing the building, checking no one has been left behind, and reporting in to the emergency services.
