Fire Warden Training Course

The Maltby Professional Services Fire Warden training course has been designed to allow your company to fulfil the statutory requirements of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. These new fire safety rules affecting all non-domestic premises in England and Wales came into force on 1 October 2006.

Background

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 clearly states that all businesses should appoint a ‘Responsible Person’ to monitor the work environment for risk and potential hazards. Under the order, anyone who has control of premises or anyone who has a degree of control over certain areas or systems may be a ‘Responsible Person’.

Article 18 of the Order details nominating one or more competent persons to assist the Responsible Person in undertaking the preventive and protective measures. It is for this reason that Fire Wardens need to be nominated and trained sufficiently.

Fire Wardens are appointed members of staff who have undergone Fire Warden training and will play a key role in fire emergency situation. While it is the employer’s role to implement safety measures such as fire alarms, signs and firefighting equipment, a Fire Warden should ensure these arrangements are adequately in place. They also play a crucial role if fire breaks out. In the event of a fire emergency, Fire Wardens must keep employers and visitors safe and ensure a safe evacuation.

All of these aspects form a vital part of an effective fire safety strategy for your organisation.

What the Fire Warden Training includes:
We will visit you at your premises and train your staff in their own familiar environment and make sure all your specific needs are covered.
The half-day course incorporates a comprehensive range of fire-related topics and matters:

1: Overview of the effects of fire on people and buildings, and the importance of fire safety
2: Legal obligations and steps required to reach compliance
3: Requirements of a Fire Warden; their duties and checks to be carried out and methods of evacuation, including persons with additional needs i.e. mobility issues
4: Introduction to and understanding of how fires start and spread
5: Training and instruction on the use of fire extinguishers and fire-fighting equipment, either with delegates using fire extinguishers (outdoor space permitting) or by video presentation and tutor demonstration.

The course is designed for a minimum of four people per session.
Maltby Professional Services will provide tutors who are industry experts, highly knowledgeable and trained in all aspects of Fire Safety. We will make sure your staff receive the best and most relevant fire training for your business and in an interactive, enjoyable and memorable way.
