Fire Marshal Refresher Training (face2face)
The London Fire Brigade recommend that all fire marshals receive refresher training “at least once a year”. Ensuring that your fire marshals are fully up to speed can only make sense for all businesses. This course gives fire marshals an opportunity to update their fire marshal training & get to practice using water and CO2 fire extinguishers again. This helps employers and businesses to remain compliant with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 which made fire safety training a legal requirement for businesses, and states that the training must be repeated periodically.
The courses give delegates a practical understanding of Fire Awareness, enabling them to identify and use the correct fire extinguishers and put fire prevention procedures into place. During the course, you’ll get to use two different types of fire extinguisher.
Course syllabus includes:
- The role of the fire marshal
- The fire triangle
