Fire Warden Competency

Training & Instruction

Brief introduction

Every organisation needs to nominate a responsible person to manage fire risk within the workplace, and depending on the size of the organisation and activities undertaken, it may also be necessary to appoint one or more Fire Wardens.

Fire Wardens are key to helping you manage fire risk by conducting inspections, reporting issues, and assisting an evacuation of the premises should there be a fire.

This one-day course can be conducted within your own training facilities or at a local hospitality venue in Sheffield, Doncaster, York, Leeds or any other town or city in Yorkshire.

Note: Operation of fire extinguishers is included within the course theory but a practical demonstration and discharge of extinguishers will not be possible.
