Fire Warden training
Having designated fire wardens is crucial for the safety of your employees in the event of a fire, and is also a necessity by law. Usually, in an organisation the responsible person will appoint fire wardens, and their role is to ensure that implemented fire safety measures are carried out in the event of a fire. Because of this, fire warden training plays an important part in the overall safety of a workplace.
A fire warden is sometimes known and referred to as a ‘Fire Marshal’.

Training your employees will also keep your organisation compliant with fire safety legislation obligations.
In Article 18 of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, nominating one or more competent persons to assist the responsible person in undertaking the preventive and protective measures is mentioned. It is for this reason that fire wardens need to be nominated and well trained.
