Fires are very common, with fire and rescue services attending over 150,000 fires in England during 2020/21. They can also be very dangerous, and cause serious injury, death and damage to property.
For this reason, the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires employers to provide their staff with appropriate information, instruction and training about the fire precautions in their workplace, and how to act in the event of a fire.

Fire safety training is very important and should be taken regularly to ensure that your knowledge is fresh and up to date. For this reason, we recommend that you complete fire safety training every three years.
This also applies to fire marshals, who should complete a fire marshal refresher course, or obtain a new fire warden certificate, every three years.
There are no fixed definitions given to the fire marshal and fire warden roles, so their duties can vary significantly between organisations.
Generally speaking, fire wardens in the workplace will be responsible for clearing a building in the event of a fire, completing head counts at the fire assembly point, and ensuring that nobody reenters the building. In contrast, fire marshals are usually responsible for identifying fire hazards in a workplace, completing fire risk assessments, and coordinating fire wardens during a fire.
Our fire warden training is suitable for anyone looking to become a fire marshal or a fire warden.
Our fire safety and fire marshal courses take 55 minutes and 80 minutes to complete respectively.
