Whatever the organisation or premise, the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires employers to have a fire safety strategy, which will allow all occupants to evacuated safely in the case of a fire.
In order to build this strategy, a responsible person (usually an owner or employer) has to carry out a risk assessment, decide on appropriate fire precautions and maintain a fire management plan.
As a way of ensuring the effectiveness of their strategy, many businesses are appointing a fully-trained fire warden as part of the emergency evacuation strategy.
It is this important role that is the focus of this elearning course.

A fire warden (also known as a fire marshal) will support the management of fire safety within a business and help ensure the safety of people in the event of a fire evacuation. They will work closely with the employer to ensure that appropriate and effective fire safety measures and procedures are in place.
