SECTION 1

To begin, we cover the nature of fire – how it works, and the different ways in which it can spread; we also cover smoke and the dangers it poses. This introduction is important for Fire Wardens so they learn what behaviour to expect from fire and smoke and how important it is to help educate their colleagues too. It’s the starting point for Fire Wardens, in the process of keeping the workplace safe. 

Fire signage can save lives, we look at signage in part 2 of our Fire Warden training.
SECTION 2

Health & safety signs can save lives – they're used to communicate important messages to prevent injury or give instructions in an emergency. This section identifies the different types of signs you may see in the workplace; we define what they look like, what they mean, and our Traffic Light System provides a simple way to remember the different types. Fire Wardens are at the forefront of fire-related health & safety in the workplace, and they should be able to help educate colleagues about signs related to fire safety.

Fire Wardens should always be proactive! Proactive duties can save lives!
SECTION 3

This section looks at the first half of a Fire Warden’s Proactive Duties, which are routine, preventative tasks that need to be completed to reduce the risk of a fire starting. This includes arson awareness, alarm and system maintenance, risk assessments, and managing ignition sources, flammables and combustibles. We also cover The Fire Safety Order (FSO).

In section 4 of our Fire Marshal and Warden training we look at reactive duties.
SECTION 4

The second half of a Fire Warden’s duties are covered in this section; these are the REACTIVE duties, which include the actions that need to be taken during fire drills, emergencies and an evacuation procedure. This section also covers clear leadership and human behaviour – a warden needs to know what to expect from their colleagues, and what their colleagues will expect from them during drills and emergencies.

It goes without saying that knowing how to use a fire extinguisher is vital but would you know which extinguisher to use for the different types of fire?
SECTION 5

To conclude our programme, this section teaches warden’s about when it’s safe to fight a fire, and when it’s NOT. We provide demonstrations on how to use the five common types of fire extinguisher, as well as fire blankets. Warden’s learn about the different “Classes of Fire”, and which extinguisher to use on each class.

Why is this training important?

COMPLIANCE

It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work.

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.
