All employees must be trained to deal with General Fire Safety situations, but it is recognised by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 that a sufficient number of competent people must be trained to perform evacuation duties in the event of a fire.
You will identify these individuals when developing your evacuation plans and assessing your fire risk. All staff that are designated as Fire Marshalls or Wardens (or sometimes heads of department) should be consulted and receive additional training to accompany the General Fire Safety training provided to all employees.
The number of Fire Marshalls or Wardens is determined by the activity or number of people on your site. For example, a small premises may only need one or two whereas a school or care home might need a larger ratio of Marshalls / Wardens to assist in the evacuation process.
JPro Services Ltd can provide bespoke training tailored to the need of your organisation and activities. We try to work alongside your Risk Assessment and Evacuation Plans to develop a comprehensive training session for those appointed individuals. This not only gives them the skills they need, but can set at ease any concerns or problems Marshalls / Wardens may have.
