FAQ - THE FIRE MARSHAL TRAINING COURSE

Frequently Asked Questions

We understand that as an employer, by law you are responsible for fire safety and may have lots of questions. To put your mind at ease, we’ve put together common fire marshal/fire warden questions and answers our training experts receive.

Hopefully, we have answered what you were looking for. However, if this isn’t the case, our friendly team are happy to assist.

What is the role of a fire marshal?

The role and responsibilities of a fire marshal or warden include:

○ Assess fire risks
○ Identify fire hazards and report them to the relevant person
○ Conduct consistent assessments of the buildings
○ Ensure everyone leaves the building in an event of a fire
○ Administer first aid
○ Fight fire if necessary
 
Our online Fire Warden training course will teach your staff these fire marshal duties, along with the relevant legislation and the different types of fire extinguishers.
Do you legally need a fire marshal?

Having a trained fire marshal or warden on site helps you meet your legal obligations as set out in the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and this can be achieved through a Fire Marshal certificate.

If a fire broke out, you are expected to have dedicated members of staff holding a Fire Marshal certification that know the responsibilities of a fire marshal and the competent skills to assist in case of an emergency. That appointed fire marshal will help the responsible person comply with the law.

What is the difference between a fire marshal and a fire warden?

The difference between a fire marshal and a fire warden isn't much, they are quite similar, but there are differences between the two.

A fire marshal’s responsibilities generally fall into two categories: preventing fires and safe emergency evacuation.

A fire warden's responsibilities are to clear the building and ensure no one is inside by carrying out a quick check and a thorough role call at the fire assembly point.

How often do you need fire marshal training?

Fire Marshal training certificates expire after 3 years, so ideally you should ensure you renew your Fire Marshal training before it expires. However, refresher training should be taken every year or even more frequently if you have higher workplace risks to ensure your staff effectively refresh their knowledge and will act appropriately in the event of a fire.

The frequency of Fire Warden training will be based on the level of the risk in the building. If you are unsure, you can find this out by carrying out a risk assessment. For example, care homes would need training more often than a small ground floor shop with a small amount of floor space due to high life risk.

Our Fire Marshal course and refresher training will ensure your staff have the relevant, up-to-date knowledge they need.

How many fire marshals are required in a workplace?

The amount of fire marshals that you need in a workplace is dependent on the risk and size of your organisation e.g. how many floors are in the building, how many employees or people you have in one area at one time and accessibility.

As a rule of thumb, those with a low-risk premise could have:

○ At least 1 fire marshal for fewer than 50 employees/occupants
○ 2 fire marshals for 50-100 employees/occupants
○ And 1 additional fire marshal for every additional 100 employees/occupants

Those with a normal-risk premise should have:

○ At least 1 fire marshal for fewer than 20 employees/occupants
○ 2 fire marshals for 20-75 employees/occupants
○ And 1 additional fire marshal for every additional 75 employees/occupants

And finally, those with a high-risk premise should have:

○ At least 1 fire marshal for fewer than 15 employees/occupants
○ 2 fire marshals for 15-50 employees/occupants
○ And 1 additional fire marshal for every additional 50 employees/occupants

Who is the responsible person in Fire Safety?

The responsible person in the workplace would be:

○ The employer
○ The owner of the building
○ The landlord
○ An occupier
○ Or anyone else with control of the premises e.g. building manager

○ Water Fire Extinguishers
