Fire Warden Training contd...

Fire Wardens - Why bother?

Fire legislation expects every employer to provide all necessary information, instruction, training and supervision for staff.

The Management of Health and Safety at work Regulations 1999 and the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires all staff to be trained in the use of fire fighting equipment and the procedures for evacuation. Fire Wardens and deputies need to be appointed and receive training in marshalling and evacuation.

In a large operation it is customary to structure fire precautions personnel into tiers. For instance it may be appropriate to support Wardens with Marshals who meet and greet staff at the Assembly Point and have Extinguisher operators who tackle the fire if safe to so. You will also need to consider how to safely evacuate disabled persons - this is no longer the responsibility of the Fire Brigade.

We include a review of your fire precautions and procedures while conducting the training at your own facilities for total convenience.

Our typical Fire Wardens course syllabus detailed below has been created to not be threatening but is entertaining and thought provoking, holding the candidates attention for the course duration of three hours, covering;

Fire Awareness
fire prevention and the main causes of fire
fire, heat and smoke spread
the organisations 'emergency plan'

The Responsibility of the Fire Warden and Marshal

The course is tailored to suit your organisations policies, procedures and fire fighting equipment. We are totally self contained bringing along our own PC based presentation equipment and clean burn gas fire simulator (where appropriate) to your venue.
