Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
Our fire safety courses are designed to not only increase the safety of your team, but also to help your company to comply with its obligations under the Fire Safety Order of 2005. This includes providing fire awareness training in Worcester for all staff, and providing specific training for appointed fire wardens or fire marshals.
How Many Fire Marshals Do I Need?
While there are no set numbers for fire marshals or fire wardens, you are nonetheless obliged to provide an appropriate number to ensure the safety of your staff and visitors. This number is based on your fire risk assessment, and takes into account the fire risks of your industry, the number of people you employ and the places in which they work. The larger and more diversely spread your team, the more fire marshals you will need. You will also need deputy fire marshals to step in when the main marshals are not available.
Fire Marshal Training in Worcester
The role of the fire marshal includes both taking responsibility for fire prevention and ensuring a safe evacuation of the building in an emergency.
On a daily basis, this covers everything from regular checks on fire doors and escape routes to raising fire awareness amongst the workforce. In the event of an fire, fire marshals must step up confidently, coordinating the response and assisting those with special needs to leave quickly and safely. Once their section is clear, they report to the person in charge or liaise with the fire services who attend the incident.
In House Training
Our fire warden training in Worcester only takes for hours, yet provides a fully compliant overview of the role and responsibilities. The course is taught by experienced experts who continually assess candidates to make sure they have understood all they have been told. The course leads to an officially recognised certificate of attendance, which meets your legal obligations as an employer.
All of our Worcester fire marshal training is available in house, to ensure maximum impact.
