Fire Warden, Awareness and Evacuation

You will, no doubt, be well aware of the potentially devastating effects of fires in the workplace in terms of lives lost, injuries, damage to property and the environment, and to business continuity. You may also be aware that It is believed that most fires are preventable.

The importance of fire safety in the workplace is underpinned by health and safety legislation that places a duty on employers to establish policies and procedures to ensure their employees receive appropriate training.

This course is designed for employees who want to develop their basic fire safety awareness by undertaking more specific fire safety roles in the workplace to manage fire risk (e.g. as fire wardens / marshals / stewards etc.) Successful candidates will be awarded a national level 2 qualification (Level 5 in Scotland).
