Fire Marshal Training

Employers and those who manage commercial property must conduct fire risk evaluations and ensure their fire safety evaluations are revised regularly. Using the findings of the evaluation, managers and employers must ensure sufficient measures are in place to protect the workforce, and others visiting the site, in the event of a fire. This includes the provision of fire marshal training for those who employ more than five people.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 act governs fire safety in the workplace. Article 21 details how employers must provide employees with adequate training in fire safety and a fire marshal from among the employees. This must be recorded where there are five or more employees. Officers who enforce fire safety can make a judgement about whether the “responsible person” is compliant with the Fire Safety Order by examining the fire safety risk assessment records.

Our course have accreditation from both CPD and RoSPA. The Fire Marshal training provides learners with the knowledge needed for fire prevention so responsible officer can make robust risk assessments. You will learn how to identify and reduce the risk that fire poses in the workplace through the use of fire drills.  The course also details ways to plan full evacuations along with how to oversee a fire emergency.   We will examine current fire safety regulation followed by the role undertaken by a fire marshal. The course moves on to look at safety features and familiarising people with these features. We also look at the fire extinguishers, what they do and how to use them. This course is a comprehensive training guide in setting up a solid fire safety strategy for your company or organisation.
