Fire safety training

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires owners of non-domestic premises in England and Wales to take reasonable and practicable steps to prevent fires, and to protect visitors and employees against death and injury in the event of a fire.

In order to comply with the Order, employers must ensure all employees receive at very least basic fire awareness training backed up by regular refresher training. At least one fire warden should also be appointed, although this will vary according to the risk level of your premises.

Your fire risk assessment will identify your individual fire safety training needs as well as your requirements on fire wardens. Fire wardens work alongside their employers to ensure that all fire safety measures and evacuation procedures are clearly set out and are working effectively. Once appointed, your fire warden will also need to undergo more in-depth training so that they have adequate knowledge to take responsibility for fire safety in the workplace.
