Fire Safety Training

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, requires the responsible person to ensure they provide their employees with adequate safety training. This safety training should be carried out when they are first employed, thereafter periodically and when they are exposed to new or increased risk within the workplace. Persons appointed to the role of Fire Warden/Marshal should be provided with sufficient safety training to enable them to fully undertake the role and responsibilities of a Fire Warden/Marshal.

  • Basic Fire Safety Awareness Training.
