Centaur offers professional fire marshal (fire watch) training that fulfills your company’s legal obligations and makes a significant contribution to fire safety in the workplace.
So, does your business need one or more fire marshals? The simple answer is yes. Your legal obligations are set out in the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 in England and Wales or the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 and the associated Fire Safety (Scotland) Regulations 2006, but in short it is a legal requirement to have a designated fire marshal (responsible person) within your company who is trained and qualified to perform these tasks, regardless of the size of your company.
The responsibilities of a fire marshal include conducting fire hazard assessments, creating fire safety and evacuation procedures, and taking appropriate action in the event of a fire.
The tricky question is how many firefighters do you need? Several factors influence this, including: the type of working environment, the risks and damage that a fire could cause on the site, the size of the site and/or the number of floors, the number of employees and number of visitors to the site and any individual access or mobility issues you may have. It’s also important to remember that you’ll need vacation and sickness cover and also plan for breaks or shifts if that applies to your business.
