Fire Warden Training – Should we do it?

It is a legal requirement to have sufficient numbers of trained persons to implement your emergency plan. Many employers see the benefit of appointing and training fire wardens to carry out these duties and to assist with routine management of fire safety.  The exact number of fire wardens will be dependent on each organisations size and specific circumstances. Therefore you need to have enough employees trained as fire wardens to help assist in an emergency situation.

What is the role of a fire warden?

In the event of a fire, the role of a fire warden is to establish a safe and organised evacuation of the building.

During the evacuation procedures, the fire wardens will be responsible for taking a register of all staff members. The fire wardens will also provide the fire services with information about the incident on their arrival.

Responsible person

The RRFSO places duties upon the ’Responsible Person‘ in the workplace. The fire warden training will explain the Responsible Person concept and the duties of the ‘responsible person’. The training will also cover the concept of due diligence in relation to appointing competent persons.
