FIRE MARSHAL

This online Fire Marshal training is beneficial because Fire Marshals have an important role to keep colleagues safe.

A key responsibility is to help prevent fires occurring in the first place.  For example, by making sure fire safety measures are understood and adhered to.  In the unlikely event a fire does occur, fire marshals have a vital role to assist the safe evacuation of co-workers.

Employer and landlords have overall responsibility for fire safety, in practice, following the Fire Risk Assessment, most organisations delegate day-to-day fire safety responsibilities to ‘competent people’ known as Fire Marshals or Fire Wardens.

Designed for all staff delegated with fire safety responsibility this online Fire Marshal course is CPD-accredited and lasts approximately 60 minutes.

UNIT 3 | FIRE PREVENTION

It is vital that a pro-active approach to fire safety is taken in order to minimise the likelihood of a fire starting in the first place.

UNIT 4 | FIRE MARSHALS & THEIR EMERGENCY RESPONSE

In addition to day-to-day fire prevention duties, fire marshals have the potentially life-saving responsibility to oversee emergency response in the case of a fire breaking out. In this unit we look at general emergency evacuation procedures, as well as identifying specific Fire Marshal duties.  Unit headers are:

Treating major burns and severe smoke inhalation requires specialist training. Your organisation may have appointed First Aiders whose role is to assist in the treatment of injuries or illness during an emergency situation, whilst waiting for the emergency services to arrive.  However, it is useful to know how to treat a minor burn, so this is the focus of this final short unit.  The unit headers are:
