Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
Under the Fire Safety Order, employers and other organisations are obliged to take a number of steps to reduce fire risks and ensure safe evacuations in the event of fire. We can support you with specialist fire marshal training courses in St Albans that not only meet your legal obligations, but will also help to make your workplace safer for all concerned.
Fire Marshal Training in St Albans
Fire marshals have an important role to play in creating a safer workplace for their colleagues and visitors. They are tasked with raising awareness of fire risks to proactively prevent fires, as well as checking to make sure all fire precautions are in place, including clear fire exits and closable fire doors.
In the event of a fire, it is their job to oversee the swift evacuation of their area, assisting anyone with special needs and checking all rooms are clear. They may also need to liaise with the emergency services with details of your premises and any specific risks.
How Many Fire Marshals Do I Need?
You have an obligation to appoint and arrange training for a number of fire marshals or fire wardens, as suggested by your fire risk assessment. This will depend on the fire risks of your operations and the number of staff you have. A single office or shop unit may only need one fire warden, whereas a large and complex factory will need many more.
In House Training
No amount of theory can replace the impact of being shown the real life fire risks of your own office or factory floor. That’s why we offer all our fire marshal training in St Albans in house, with courses individually designed to suit the specifics of the premises. This is far more effective in teaching your staff safe working practices and prompt evacuation procedures that could save their lives. In house courses also save time and money too, eliminating the inconvenience and cost of travel and increasing candidate engagement.
Fire marshal training is provided under continual assessment, and a certificate of attendance is given to everyone who completes the course successfully.
