Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
Naturally, fire safety means more than just complying with the regulations; it is about making sure your people and property are safe. Nonetheless, it is important that you are aware of your obligations and take the required steps to meet them through appointing and training the appropriate people. We can help you decide exactly what fire safety measures you need to take, and support you with a full package of cost effective courses.
Fire Marshal Training in Slough
The appointment of nominated fire marshals or fire wardens is one of the fundamental obligations of the Fire Safety Order. These key staff members are responsible for keeping everyone else safe, both day to day through risk reduction, and in the unlikely event of an emergency. The duties of a fire marshal include taking responsibility for the fire precautions in their appointed area, including escape routes, fire doors, passive safety equipment and fire extinguishers. They also work to promote a mind-set of fire safety amongst the workforce. In an emergency, they will sweep their section checking that everyone has left the building and providing assistance for anyone with special needs.
How Many Fire Marshals Do I Need?
The number of fire marshals / fire wardens depends on what you do and where you do it. Low risk activities, in simple buildings, may only require a single warden (with cover for illness and holidays), while higher risks and more complex premises require a greater number of appointed persons. Your fire risk assessment will give you an idea of the number of people you need to appoint.
