Assigning Fire Warden duties to a responsible person within your organisation is a key component of ensuring that your workplace maintains great health and safety standards. Aside from that, it also demonstrates a clear commitment to implementing sound emergency fire procedures.
This programme provides complete knowledge, which coupled with correct experience, leads to competence in this role.
The course covers your duties under the latest fire legislation, as well as looking at fire-prevention measures, the correct use of fire extinguishers, and how to organise a safe evacuation.
Fire Warden Training Course Contents
1. The Nature of Fire
To begin, we cover the nature of fire – how it works, and the different ways in which it can spread; we also cover smoke and the dangers it poses. This introduction is important for Fire Wardens so they learn what behaviour to expect from fire and smoke and how important it is to help educate their colleagues too. It’s the starting point for Fire Wardens, in the process of keeping the workplace safe.
2. Fire Signage
Health and safety signs can save lives – they are used to communicate important messages to prevent injury or give instructions in an emergency. This section identifies the different types of signs you may see in the workplace; we define what they look like, what they mean, and our Traffic Light System provides a simple way to remember the different types. Fire Wardens are at the forefront of fire-related health and safety in the workplace, and they should be able to help educate colleagues about signs related to fire safety.
3. Proactive Duties
This section looks at the first half of a Fire Warden’s Proactive Duties, which are routine, preventative tasks that need to be completed to reduce the risk of a fire starting. This includes arson awareness, alarm and system maintenance, risk assessments, and managing ignition sources, flammables and combustibles. We also cover The Fire Safety Order (FSO)
4. Reactive Duties
The second half of a Fire Warden’s duties are covered in this section; these are the REACTIVE duties, which include the actions that need to be taken during fire drills, emergencies and an evacuation procedure. This section also covers clear leadership and human behaviour – a warden needs to know what to expect from their colleagues, and what their colleagues will expect from them during drills and emergencies.
5. Fire Extinguishers
To conclude our programme, this section teaches warden’s about when it’s safe to fight a fire, and when it’s NOT. We provide demonstrations on how to use the five common types of fire extinguisher, as well as fire blankets. Warden’s learn about the different “Classes of Fire”, and which extinguisher to use on each class.
