Our fire training safety professionals will deliver an in-depth fire marshal course informed by the latest fire legislation, ensuring your company’s fire safety procedures are up to date and fully compliant.

Why are fire marshals important? 

Every year there are 100,000 fires, with 600 lives lost. Fire can devastate property and claim human lives, regardless of the age of your building and the precautions you may have taken.

For these reasons, it's essential you put in place a well thought-out plan to evacuate staff should the worst happen and have a person responsible for overseeing this. Our expert fire marshal training helps to ensure your internal fire safety team has skills needed to keep your business safe.

Fire Marshal Training

Who requires fire marshal training?

Fire training is essential for every person working in an organisation, company, or office building, and is especially important for the designated fire marshal. Anyone assigned to this role has a responsibility towards fire safety at work, which is why it is essential they complete a specialised fire marshal course. This will help to prepare them for a fire-related incident in the workplace.

According to the Fire Safety Order 2005, it is the responsibility of the employer to nominate a sufficient number of people to take on additional fire safety responsibilities. All of whom will require training on a fire marshal course.
