Why Have Fire Warden Training?

Workplace Fire Wardens are nominated to take on extra fire related responsibilites in the workplace and as such have an important role in your business.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 mentions that the 'responsible person' should appoint 'competent persons' to assist in fire related matters and should received relevant training. This role is likely to be carried out by a Fire Warden and therefore training is essential in empoyering them in their role.
