A great fire warden course London today

We carried out a great fire warden course London today. It was attended by fire wardens and also by building managers. Our client was based in a multi-tenanted building so had to consider the landlords fire emergency plan.

This building has a range of different companies in it. Most are offices but there is also a fashion designer located in the premises. The site has a good fire emergency plan and also evacuation plans. Our client is extending their workspace by occupying another floor of the building, so called us in to help them make a new plan.

The manager had carried out a fire risk assessment some months ago but knew a new assessment would be required. They decided to have new training and establish some plans before carrying out the new fire risk assessment.

Fire marshal training legal requirements

Fire marshal training legal requirementsfire marshal training legal requirements

What are your fire marshal training legal requirements?

So what are your fire marshal training legal requirements? Fire law requires persons in charge of fire safety in a building to have an evacuation plan in the event of a fire. The law also requires that person to have sufficient number of trained personnel to put the plan into place.

The frequency of fire marshal training will be based on the level of risk in the building. This can be found out by carrying out a fire risk assessment in the place of work. Places of work where there is a high life risk such as a care homes would need training more often than a small ground floor shop with a small amount of floor space.

Even though fire deaths in places of work are uncommon, regular fire training of fire marshals is required. You may need additional fire marshal training if you have shift work or also a high turnover of staff. The following list provides a rough guide to fire marshal training frequency:

Places with sleeping accommodation such as care homes and also hotels – annual fire training
Large buildings where members of the public gather – annual training
Buildings that offer healthcare and also where disabled persons visit – annual fire training
Buildings such as schools, colleges, nurseries and also universities – annual fire training
Premises with large numbers of persons or high risk – annual fire training
Smaller buildings such as offices, small retail units or also small low risk units – fire training every two or three years.

What is the best fire extinguisher type for your workplace?

What is the best fire extinguisher type for your workplace?fire extinguisher type

So what is the best fire extinguisher type for your workplace? This is a common question to our office from new businesses so here is a quick overview.

Workplaces should have at least one general purpose fire extinguisher for each 200 sq metres of floor space and also a minimum of two per floor. If the floor space is less 100 sq metres only one general purpose fire extinguisher type is required. So what is a general purpose fire extinguisher type? A general purpose fire extinguisher is either a water or foam fire extinguisher. They can be either jet or spray types. City Fire Training recommend that small workplaces / offices should select 3 Litre fire extinguishers as they are not too heavy for all staff.

Workplaces must also have other fire extinguishers to protect other risks. For example an office would have an appropriate number of carbon dioxide fire extinguishers. As a rough guide, an office may choose to place one CO2 fire extinguisher next to each general purpose fire extinguisher. A workplace with a commercial or large kitchen would also select a Wet Chemical fire extinguisher.

Dry Powder fire extinguishers may be found in boiler rooms but fire service advice generally dictates that they are not suitable for indoor areas.

An example of what fire extinguisher type for a medium size office

Our example here is a two storey office building with each floor having 700 sq metres of floor space. It has a car park attached to the building with space for ten cars. The building has a small sever room but no cooking facilities.

This building would have the 4 general purpose fire extinguishers on each floor. We would also recommend a 2 to 4 CO2 extinguishers per floor and one CO2 extinguisher situated in or outside the sever room (Dependent on size).

As a training company we would of course also recommend fire marshal and also fire extinguisher training!

We hope this fire extinguisher type article has been useful. If you want more information either call or email us.

So why do all staff in educational premises need school fire training? After all, most school have regular fire drills and they are carried really quickly!

School fire training needs to cover a range of issues not just fire drills. So what should your school fire training include? Classes of fire and also how to use fire extinguishers are a must know for all staff. Some other key staff will need to know what maintenance checks need to be carried out and also how often.

All school staff need to know the contents of the fire emergency plan. This is not just how to get out in an emergency, it is about all fire safety issues in the building. For example, all schools carry out fire drills during normal school days, but drills are also needed for breakfast and after school clubs. They are also required if the building is hired to third parties. Head teachers should also consider fire drills during break and lunch times to see how efficient their fire plan is.

Why train all staff though? We have teachers everywhere!! Some schools believe administration staff and catering staff may not need such comprehensive training. However, many administration departments and catering have regular contact with pupils, so must react immediately putting plans into place if a fire occurs.
