Fire Warden Training

What is special about this course?

The Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 requires employers to have an adequate number of trained persons responsible for supervising and implementing the Fire Action Plan.  All staff (including volunteers, temporary and agency staff) should be given information, training and instruction on the fire safety measures to be taken or observed on the premises, including the action to be taken in case of fire.

The Fire Warden Course will give employees nominated as Fire Wardens a greater knowledge of what is expected of them when the fire alarm goes off.  It is essential that staff know what they must do to safeguard themselves and others on the premises and to have an awareness of the importance of their actions.  This includes risk reduction, maintenance of fire safety measures and action if there is a fire.
