The Fire Safety Regulations (The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005) place a legal requirement on employers to provide information, instruction and training to employees about fire precautions in the workplace.
Our courses are designed to help employers address their legal responsibilities by providing employees with the knowledge and understanding required to act safely in the event of a fire in the workplace.
Employees who want to develop their fire safety awareness in order to undertake more specific fire safety roles in the workplace to manage fire risk (e.g. as fire wardens/marshals/stewards etc.) will find these courses ideal.
Fire Safety – How many Fire Wardens/Marshals should you have?
The Fire risk associated with your premises will determine the number of marshals you will need for example
- Size of organization
- Number of locations
- How many floors you occupy within the buildings
- Flammable materials
- Shift patterns
- Staff absences
Our Fire Safety Awareness course is an introduction to fire awareness. It provides a foundation for employees who want to develop basic fire safety awareness. This is an basic first step for potential fire wardens/marshals/stewards etc).
Our Fire Safety Level 2 course takes the subject further and deals with managing fire risks.
Both courses are aimed at potential fire wardens/marshals/stewards etc. or anyone wanting to take an active part in managing fire risk within their workplace.
