While training is essentially generic, the training can be adapted to suit specific site requirements

Aim

To provide appointed Fire Marshall/Fire Wardens with the knowledge to enable them to carry out their duties in a confident and competent manner.

Objectives

To provide fire safety training in the following areas:

  • Understand the fire precautions that are built into the workplace.
  • Recognise the hazards and the threat posed by fire to people, property and jobs.
  • Recognise the importance of continuous monitoring of fire safety standards and the need to keep records.
  • Understand the need for and the frequency of testing all fire safety provisions.
  • Demonstrate the correct selection and use of portable fire fighting equipment.

  • Fire Risk Assessment
  • The duties of a Fire Marshall/Fire Warden

  • How to select and use portable fire fighting equipment
  • Human behaviour in fire
  • The importance of record keeping

Who should attend?

Persons nominated with responsibility for carrying out regular inspections of the fire safety provisions within the building and who are responsible for ensuring satisfactory evacuation of the premises in the event of fire.

How many Fire Marshalls/Fire Wardens do I need to nominate?

This depends upon the findings from your fire risk assessment.

The main duty of the Fire Marshall/Fire Warden is to search the area for which they are responsible to ensure everyone has evacuated* (then safely evacuate themselves). Sufficient wardens must be provided to enable total evacuation within 2.5 minutes of hearing an alarm/discovering a fire. (* without putting themselves at risk.)

General rules in deciding numbers are:

  • Everyone must reach a place of safety within 2.5 minutes.
  • Minimum of one (ideally two) per floor/department.
  • If the floor is large or complex then responsibility should be split with one or more extra FireMarshals/Fire Wardens.
  •  In the case of multi-building sites, a minimum of one Fire Marshall/FireWarden should be provided per building.
  • If the site is in a densely occupied area, sufficient wardens should be provided to make the responsibility reasonable and safe.

You also need to consider:

Type of occupants

If the building has the following categories of occupants, this should be borne in mind in deciding on the number of Fire Marshalls/Fire Wardens:

  • Members of the public
  • The elderly
  •  Disabled people

Fire risk

A building with high fire risks and/or poor fire precautions will need a proportionately higher number of Fire Marshalls/Fire Wardens. Good fire risk management is required in these cases.

Duration

Up to 3 hours.
