Fire Wardens

Course Overview

This course has been Approved by RoSPA.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states that the employer or owner as the 'responsible' person has overall responsibility for fire safety in their premises but may appoint 'competent' persons such as Fire Wardens to assist in ensuring adequate fire safety procedures are implemented. The Regulatory Order also requires that where persons are appointed to assist that they be provided with suitable training. Assistance may take the form of participating in the fire risk assessment and the subsequent development of an emergency plan. Fire wardens are then normally designated the responsibility of executing the emergency plan during a fire emergency.
