Introduction:

Workplace fires, whether large or small, pose a real threat to worker health and safety. Fire warden or marshal plays an important role in ensuring your business is prepared for a fire emergency. Along with your emergency plan, fire wardens are an important risk control measure to ensure that your workplace is prepared should an emergency situation, potentially a fire, occur.

Those employees expected to undertake the role of fire marshals would require more comprehensive training. Role of a fire marshal may include:

  • using firefighting equipment if safe to do so;
  • liaising with the fire and rescue service on arrival;
  • shutting down vital or dangerous equipment; and
  • Performing a supervisory/ managing role in any fire situation.

NIST has delivered fire warden training to call centers, corporate offices, ware houses, facility management companies, manufacturing complexes and institutional buildings.
