TRAINING COURSE FACT SHEET
Fire Marshal Training Course
The Fire Precautions (Workplace) Regulations 1997 (as amended) require virtually all employers to carry out fire risk assessments of their workplaces and to nominate a sufficient number of competent persons (‘fire marshals’) to implement the procedures identified in those assessments.
In April 2006, The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 came into effect to become the sole piece of legislation dealing with all aspects of fire safety in England and Wales. This legislation again requires that a sufficient number of competent persons are made available to implement procedures for the safe evacuation of relevant persons from the premises.
Delegates will receive an insight into the Fire Regulations and general fire precautions, and will be trained to be effective Fire Marshals.
At the end of the course delegates will be able to:-
- Understand the role of the Fire Marshal
- Be able to liaise with the fire and rescue services
- Take appropriate action on discovering a fire
- Understand fire legislation
- Understand the chemistry of fire
- Understand common causes of fire
- Understand the need for fire safety precautions
- Conduct fire drills and evacuations
- Use fire extinguishers.
A maximum of 10 trainees will be permitted per instructor.
