How many fire marshals does our workplace require?


The number of fire wardens will be based on a number of issues. These will include: What type of workplace and what work is carried out in the premises, is there a high level of risk in the building, are the staff are employed on shift work or not, how many floors that you have in the building,how big is the building, the type of evacuation strategy and accounting procedure that is in place at all material times. Most professionals consider that you will require one fire warden for every one minute of search time in a building ( fire service booklet advice ). There should be deputy fire wardens in place in the event that there are no available fire wardens to implement any fire evacation procedures.


Many of our delegates come to our public training courses to learn more about the roles and duties of fire wardens, evacuation and accounting strategies that can be employed in a workplace. Our fire warden training courses provide full details of what you will need to ensure that your organisation meets its statutory requirements under the Fire Safety Order 2005

How frequently should fire wardens receive fire warden training?

The frequency of fire warden training / fire marshal courses in London will depend on a number of issues. It will depend on the level of risk and type of hazards in the premises, staff turnover, the type of building and workplace and the findings of the fire risk assessment.


The following examples are from companies who attend our fire warden training London programme:  Company A has just 30 employees and is based in a large five storey Georgian building. There are two means of escape and staff who are based in the building tend to work for the organisations for many years. Company B are a small retail group with a number of small / medium ground floor outlets (approx 15 staff in each outlet). There is a high turnover of staff (students etc). Company C are based on the top two floors of a large six storey building which has on going building development. There is a moderate turnover of staff.


There is a good case for regular fire warden training for each business. However as "A" have a small number of staff who are familiar with the building they may need less regular training particularly as the fire wardens have been in post for many years. Company B has 15 staff but they do not all work on the same shift, This means all should be available to help customers from the buildings. They need frequent fire warden training. Company C are working in a high risk building due to the mixed tenancy and building works. They should have frequent fire warden training.



Fire Training London provide open fire warden training London programmes and in house fire warden courses in London. For details on how we can help you meet your statutory obligations call our team now!

How often should employees and volunteers receive training in fire procedures?

The frequency of staff fire training will depend on the significant findings of the fire risk assessment of the premises and the organisations fire emergency plan. If the workplace is high risk or has a high turnover of employees, then fire safety training should be carried out frequently. Buildings that have low risk or where staff may have worked for some time / received regular fire training in the past could train less often. If you book your staff on one of our open fire warden training courses in London or an in house fire training course, we will happily advise them on the frequency of fire safety training and other essential fire safety requirements.


Fire wardens require more frequent fire training than regular staff. They will need to receive detailed information about the building fire evacuation strategy, how persons react during a fire evacuation, how to safely direct persons towards fire exits and places of safety, how to search rooms and areas safely, how to open doors (while searching) in the correct manner, how to provide assistance to persons that are less able and possibly additional fire extinguisher practical training.
