Fire Marshal/Warden Training

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 places a responsibility on all employers and business owners to provide employees with adequate fire safety training. Additionally article 18 of the order places a requirement for the Responsible Person to appoint one or more 'Competent Persons' to assist with fire safety and emergency evacuations in the event of fire.
