Ensure you can evacuate your colleagues safely with a Fire Warden training course.

This 1-day Fire Warden course will allow attendees to implement the plans, procedures and measures concerning fire in the workplace and also learn to evacuate staff safely using Fire Warden Training techniques.

Fire Warden Training – Workplace Obligations:

There is a legal requirement on employers to prepare an Emergency Plan that outlines how the workplace will be evacuated in the event of a fire outbreak. Fire Wardens are designated the responsibility of executing this plan in an emergency situation. This course aims to inform Fire Wardens of their responsibilities in running a fire drill effectively and safety. It also details the steps involved in developing an Emergency Plan for the workplace, in the event that one does not currently exist.

Section 11(1)(c) of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 states that the employer is required to:

“designate employees to implement the plans, procedures and measures concerning fire and emergency. These designated employees are commonly called fire wardens or fire officers”
