Fire Marshal (Warden)
This half-day Fire Marshal training course covers the role of the designated fire marshal (fire warden). You will learn about preventing fires, and about the different types of fire extinguisher and how to use them correctly.
It depends on how many employees you have and the type of premises you’re in. If you’re a normal-risk business and have less than 20 employees you need at least one fire warden. If you have between 20 – 75 occupants you must have a minimum of two fire warden and after that, you need an additional fire warden for every 75 people.
However, if you’re in a multi-level building or operate from more than one site, you need at least one fire warden per floor or site and it’s also important to have more than one person trained in case one of your wardens is off sick or on holiday, for example.
