Fire Marshal/Warden Training Course

Course overview

Fire Marshal Training is essential to ensure that employees who are designated as a Fire Marshal understand their legal responsibilities and have the practical skills to carry out their role. This course will benefit all employees, particularly those that are designated as Fire Marshals. They will be more aware of their own safety, and feel confident and competent to carry out their duties.

Fire can pose a significant threat to business. Every year many people die and many more are injured by fires that occur in the workplace. The financial costs and bad publicity of a fire can be equally devastating. Annually the cost to business through fire runs to many millions of pounds and companies are all too often unable to recover from its devastating effects.

It makes sound business sense to ensure your employees know what to do in the event of fire, but more importantly how to prevent fires occurring in the first place. Current legislation requires employers to provide adequate training in fire awareness/safety for all members of their staff. All our courses aim to provide awareness of the threat posed by fire by, combining the recognition of individual responsibilities to promptly report fire related hazards, and how to initiate the appropriate actions should a fire occur.
