Fire warden


Product Description

This course is designed for members of staff nominated as fire wardens.
In buildings in which a roll call after evacuation is ineffective due the continuous movement of people in and out of the building, designated Fire Wardens should be appointed for each area of the building.
Participants will be able to, in the event of a fire, ensure that their areas are evacuated to the fire assembly point to an In House standard

Product Specification

Often with various differing names attached to it, a Fire Warden or Fire Marshall is a person in the workplace who has been given the responsibility of managing people to safety in the event of a fire related situation.
Nominated Fire Wardens can be absolutely crucial in the event of a fire in the workplace. While everyone will generally have some knowledge of how best to react to fire in the workplace, it is the Fire Wardens duty to be fully up to date on a range of factors relating to fire, to ensure maximum potential for fire prevention, and safe evacuation if prevention isn't possible.
