 Legislation relating to Fire Wardens

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) order 2005

Depending on the size and use of your premises, you must appoint one or more competent persons to carry out any of the preventive and protective measures required by The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) order 2005. A competent person is someone with adequate training, knowledge and experience to be able to implement these measures properly.

The responsible person (property owner, company director etc) must, where necessary, nominate competent persons to implement those measures and ensure that the number of such persons, their training and the equipment available to them are adequate, taking into account the size of, and the specific hazards involved in, the premises concerned...

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, Section 13

A competent person must be appointed to carry out fire-fighting duties (where appropriate), contact the Emergency Services, and assist in evacuations. This person would typically be a Marshal or Warden. Failure to carry out these responsibilities may result in enforcement by the Enforcing Authority through the actions of an Inspector. Conviction for failing to comply may lead to a penalty consisting of a fine or up to two years’ imprisonment.

Excellent. Very informative

This was a great training resource and easy to use. Was good that you could do a bit and then resume later. Had a few wee glitches or errors while in progress. (Error after doing 18 questions of the test and had to do it again!)All the nitty gritty information given was great and was very comprehensive and was particularly good to see the examples of how people behave in practice.In respect of the legislation quoted, if this training resource is aimed at businesses in Scotland as well as in England and Wales would be good to make it clear that the legislation quoted applies to England and Wales and that Scotland has its own legislation covering fire safety. However this is a small point as the rest of the content was well delivered and informative.
