Teaching you how to identify and control fire risks
What is fire warden training?
According to the Fire Protection Association, 77% of businesses that experience a major fire never fully recover. Fire warden training covers a variety of areas including; legislation, causes of fire, fire prevention, fire evacuation procedures, extinguisher use, safety features, emergency procedures, role and responsibilities, fire assembly and managing people under pressure.
Is fire warden training a legal requirement?
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires employers to have a strategy to evacuate all occupants within a building. The legislation implements a risk-based approach to fire safety in community, industrial and business premises and requires the responsible person (usually the employer, owner or occupier) to carry out a fire safety risk assessment and implement appropriate fire precautionary and protection measures, and to maintain a fire management plan.
