There is a legal requirement on employers to prepare an Emergency Plan that outlines how the workplace will be evacuated in the event of a fire outbreak. Fire Wardens are designated the responsibility of executing this plan in an emergency situation.
The Fire Warden course aims to inform Fire Wardens of their responsibilities in running a fire drill effectively and safely. It also details the steps involved in developing an emergency Plan for the workplace, in the event that one does not currently exist.
Our team of experienced Instructors deliver this course making it realistic and memorable for the participants. This course can be delivered ‘on site’, anywhere in Ireland and the course is tailored to ensure the content is relevant for the participants and their work environment.
The course enables staff with an enhanced fire safety role to meet the training requirements detailed in the current workplace fire safety legislation.
