The actions of staff in the event of a fire are likely to be crucial to their safety and that of other people in the premises. As such, all staff should receive basic fire safety induction training and attend refresher training sessions at pre-determined intervals. Those nominated to use the different types of fire extinguishers should receive additional training.
You’ll need to have some staff trained as fire wardens. The number you need will depend on the level of risk on-site, and the number of employees you have on the premises at any one time. A comprehensive fire risk assessment will determine the level of risk, and how many fire wardens you should have.
It is also recommended that fire drills are carried out twice per year to ensure that the emergency evacuation plan is fully understood, and that staff fire safety training has been effective.
