From the welcome of Wetherspoons, to the winnings of Camelot, Watford is home to a huge range of national and international companies covering a remarkable range of industries. But whatever business you are in, you are still required to comply with the Fire Safety Order 2005, including appointing and training fire marshals, and we have all the courses you need to meet your obligations in full.
Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
Under the Order, you are obliged to provide fire awareness training in Watford for all your staff, as well as specific training for appointed fire marshals or fire wardens. Failure to provide the required training could not only cost you heavily in fines, it could also be very costly for your company in terms of losses from fire, and it might even cost lives.
How Many Fire Marshals Do I Need?
Under the Order, you are obliged to conduct a fire risk assessment of your premises and calculate the number of fire marshals you need to uphold safety and to take charge in an emergency. This number will be influenced by the number of staff you employ, the nature of your work and the layout of your business premises, and must include extra fire marshals to provide cover for absences. There are no set numbers required by law, however you will find worked examples in the assessment guidelines to help you decide how many fire wardens are recommended.
Fire Marshal Training in Watford
The role of fire warden or fire marshal is a proactive one, and includes guiding colleagues in how to act in an emergency, as well as teaching them how to prevent fires and reduce risks. They are ultimately responsible for checking that their designated area has been safely evacuated, checking all rooms and refuge areas before exiting themselves.
The fire marshal also has day to day responsibilities for checking exits are kept clear, fire doors are not wedged open and that fire fighting equipment, such as extinguishers, are correctly placed and regularly serviced.
