About this Course
This course is designed for managers, supervisors, and all staff members who have the responsibility of dealing with fire-related policies and emergencies. It can be used as an induction or refresher training for fire marshals and wardens or anyone working in a fire hazard-prone environment.
This course teaches best practice regarding fire safety, including an introduction to fire safety, characteristics of fire, legislation and risk assessment. This makes it a perfect training for a designated fire marshal. It is also ideal for anyone taking a level 2 Fire Safety qualification. It can also be used as part of the on-programme element of the new apprenticeship standards to help apprentices effectively integrate into the workplace.
Most fires can be prevented. It is the responsibility of every business to carry out a thorough assessment of the risk of fire, decide on appropriate fire precautions and devise an action plan in the event of a fire. Assigning Fire Warden duties to a responsible person who has had Level 2 Fire Safety training will ensure that you maintain high health and safety standards in your workplace. It will also reflect your commitment to your employees’ health and safety.
A Fire Marshal or Fire Warden’s responsibilities include identifying and reporting potential fire hazards at the workplace to the appropriate person. In the event of a fire, a Fire Marshal or Fire Warden ensures that the premises are evacuated in a timely manner and all employees are assembled at the designated assembly point. During the event of a fire, Fire Marshals or Fire Wardens are usually the last person to exit the premises, which means that they are most at risk. Having the right training will ensure that they are able to help others while keeping themselves safe.
