Fire Marshal Training delivered by DGA Safety
Posted on the 20th July 2015
Fire Marshal Training delivered by DGA's approved City and Guilds Trainer is designed to give the Fire Awareness training that every employee requires, and then expand to train Fire Wardens/Fire Marshalls on their role not only in the event of a fire, but ensuring that the ongoing Fire Safety of the business is kept to the fore. This is achieved by monitoring and maintaining the vital Fire Safety equipment from the Fire extinguishers, to the Fire Alarm, to the emergency lighting.
Q. I’ve trained all my staff in Fire Awareness, do I need to have Fire Wardens?
Yes, the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states that you must have a sufficient number of competent people to perform evacuation duties as well as ensuring that the fire safety systems in your premises are fully functioning.
Q. How many Fire Wardens / Fire Marshals should we have?
The number of Fire Wardens required will be identified by your Fire Risk Assessment. You need to ensure you have enough Fire Wardens to cover your business in the event of a fire. If you work in a small unit with 1 floor, you may only need 2 but if you are on a big site with several multi-storey buildings and run 24 hours a day then you will need to ensure you have cover for each floor and building for all of the shifts, accounting for lunch breaks, sickness and holiday cover.
Q. Where is the training held?
