This course is designed for members of staff who are looking to become the designated fire warden for their workplace.
Delegates will learn about causes and effects of fires, as well as how to prevent their spread and implement necessary emergency procedures. The course complies with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and can be combined with our fire extinguisher practical course for a more intensive training experience to cover all fire risks.

• The role of the fire marshal and responsibilities.
• Relevant legislation and guidelines.
