Fire Training in Hampshire, London, Manchester, Birmingham and across the UK
The Fire Safety Order of 2005 legislation requires all employers to ensure that employees are provided with adequate and suitable fire safety awareness and fire warden training. Fire safety training awareness and fire warden training within any working environment is a legal requirement under the order.
When is fire warden/marshal training necessary?
Fire warden/marshal training is necessary when new employees are moved into a building or changes have been made to the emergency plan and the preventative and protective measures. Fire marshal training is also advised when working practices and processes or people’s responsibilities have changed or any risks in a building have changed. If disabled persons have been employed or a new member of staff has undertaken the role of a duty manager or fire marshal.
How many employees do I need to be trained as fire wardens?
You should make provision for at least 2 fire wardens per floor. A typical example would be an office that occupies 2 floors and has approximately 30 employees should make the provision for at least 4 fire wardens. This would be the minimum requirement. It would be advised that in this scenario the company should have 6 wardens. This allows for sickness,holidays and other unforeseen circumstances.
Training should be repeated as often as necessary to expand your fire marshals knowledge. We do provide annual refresher course and they are advisable.
All staff should undergo a contingent fire safety awareness training on induction to any business. Staff should be aware of these procedures throughout the duration of their employment.
