Fire Warden Training

All our courses are bespoke to your business, it’s premises and your company specific fire safety information, they are informative, educational, interesting and most importantly fun! All our trainers are Senior Fire Safety Consultants who come to you with a wealth of knowledge and experience in both the theory and practice of fire safety, fire behaviour and fire fighting and also an entertaining anecdote or two!

The practical element of our courses also allow participants to go beyond the theoretical. Handling and discharging an extinguisher in real life and using it to put out a fire is such an invaluable experience for staff and helps delegates feel confident in their role in the event of a fire emergency.

Frequently asked questions

We run all our fire safety courses on days and at times that best suit you and your business. We can run them at any time day or night to accommodate any and all staff shift patterns.

Fire training should start with your in-house induction training on an employees first day at work and continue in the form of regular refresher training. At least once per year fire training sessions should be provided to make sure all staff remain familiar with the specific fire safety arrangements for your workplace and are reminded of the important action to be taken in the event of a fire.

Training should be more frequent if:

  • You have a high turnover of staff
  • Your staff are responsible for the safety of hotel guests, vulnerable residents or patients
  • There is a high risk of fire

Any team members who have specific responsibilities for fire safety should receive detailed instruction on their own duties and have refresher training every 6 months.

These team members include:

  • Department heads
  • Fire Marshals or Fire Wardens
  • Firefighting teams in large workplaces
  • Floor supervisors
  • Central control room staff
  • Security staff including night security patrols
  • Attendants
  • Stewards
  • Kitchen staff
  • Engineering and maintenance staff
  • Receptionists
  • Caring staff
  • Hotel staff

It varies from business to business but generally includes:

  • Induction training to cover general fire awareness.
  • Periodic refresher training, or extra training where the level of fire risk increases as a result of changes in your operations.
  • Training to support people in meeting their fire safety duties – for example, keeping your ‘responsible people’ up to date.
  • Training to build appropriate skills such as fire marshal / warden or using fire extinguishers.

If you are taking part in a training course that includes ‘live fire’ and practical fire extinguisher use then – yes we will. But of course, only after taking into consideration the safety of the area in which this will be taking place. Generally we require an outdoor car park area, courtyard or similar in which to carry out this part of the course. All our courses are lead by fully qualified Fire Safety Consultants who will carry out a dynamic risk assessment of the area before this element of the course takes place. You are in very safe hands!

For your convenience, all our fire safety courses are held on your company premises, this reduces travel time and costs for your staff and also reduces their time out of the business for you. By holding the courses on your premises the information also feels a lot more ‘relevant’ as all our courses are bespoke to your company, your business and your particular building layout.

We will require a suitable meeting room for the classroom based part of the course and a safe outdoor space to carry out any ‘live fire’ modules.
