This fire marshal / fire warden training course is suitable for those given extra responsibility for fire safety in their workplace. It provides enough knowledge and understanding to be able to carry out their duties with confidence. The course is delivered in the workplace so that real situations can be discussed.
Whilst everyone in the organisation shares the responsibility for fire safety, a fire risk assessment may recommend that fire marshals are also required. Fire marshals play an important role within any organisation. They support both the employer and employee in maintaining fire safety. They’re actions may save lives in an emergency.

- Identify fire hazards in their workplace
