Fire marshal training London in house programmes

Fire marshal training London in house programmesfire marshal training London

So today we carried out a great fire marshal training London programme for a fashion group. The course was attended by five fire marshals and also the Responsible Person for company.

The company takes fire safety seriously and recently also asked us to provide a fire risk assessment for their building. We noted there were no “out of hours fire” procedures during the assessment and hence asked for a new procedure during the training. The manager was aware of the issue but had not put in a new plan.

Managers should note all of the findings of a fire risk assessment and act on them as soon as possible. While a fire service visit just after an FRA inspection is unlikely it is possible. Managers must be able to show that they working through any points raised and therefore improve fire safety.

The course today was one a number carried out since the business was started three years ago. Even in this short time, staff have changed, hence the need for new fire marshals on a regular basis. Todays course also included ensuring who had responsibility in a multi-tenanted building. Some tests are carried out by the Landlord and  others by the manager of the workplace.

Our team can provide an adapted fire marshal course for your team. Either call us or email for more details.

Duties of a fire marshal

The  Duties of a fire marshal or fire warden

The duties of a fire marshal or fire warden can be varied. Therefore, any person  in this role must be aware of their responsibilities and tasks.

First of all, the role involves taking part in the fire plan and procedures. The plans should already be created and marshals will have carried out fire drills.

Also, other duties of a fire marshal may include checking that fire precautions and building corridors are safe to use. This will include making sure the means of escape is clear and that fire extinguishers are in place. In addition, checks may include emergency lighting and checking that fire exits open easily.

Some managers ask fire marshals to carry out simple fire training for new  and temporary staff. In addition, the training should include where exits and fire extinguishers are and fire evacuation plan.

Marshals  and wardens may be assisted by deputy marshals and these persons also need to be trained.

Fire training

Workplace fire training and fire drills should be carried out frequently. Fire marshal training could be yearly and fire drills every six months. Whatever the frequency the training should be based on the fire plans and a realistic fire scenario in the building.

Our fire marshal course will help marshals and wardens with their role. Furthermore, the training is an approved course and all persons on the course will receive a certificate.

The course includes:

  • Fire law and case histories.
  • Extinguishers and classes of fire.
  • Fire plans,  drills and how to account for people in a building.
  • Plans for disabled persons and those with reduced mobility.

Managers and persons  can view the fire marshal course  by following this link.

What does a fire warden and fire marshal do all day?

So, what does a fire warden and fire marshal do all day?

We were asked this question at a recent fire warden course! So, we asked the fire training course attendees what they thought and these are their answers:

  • They did their normal day job!
  • They would do a check of the area they work for hazards and availability of escape routes.
  • Checking that fire escape routes and fire exit doors are available and open.
  • Looking for problems and issues that might start a fire or hinder staff evacuation.
  • Checking fire safety measures such as fire alarm call points, fire extinguishers and fire doors in the building are not obstructed or interfered with.
  • Talking through fire safety issues to new persons and new starters in their area.
  • Making sure that the emergency lighting worked and fire alarm is heard when the building has its weekly test.
  • Taking part in fire drills as a fire warden or as an observer.
  • Carrying out there fire warden role and implementing the fire evacuation plan in the event of a fire alarm operating

We thought the course delegates produced the perfect fire marshal list and gave them an extra tea break! How do you think they did?
