Fire Warden Training Glasgow
Onguard Fire Protection‘s comprehensive Fire Warden Training in Glasgow covers identifying hazards, managing emergencies, and safe evacuations. Fire warden training prepares individuals to handle fire safety in the workplace. This training benefits employees, employers, and those responsible for fire safety in public spaces. Our course promotes safety awareness, emergency response, and legal compliance.
Fire warden safety training can help companies comply with legal requirements and avoid penalties or legal liabilities in case of a fire emergency.
When Do You Need Fire Warden Training?
In Scotland, UK, the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 places a legal duty on employers to ensure the safety of employees and others in case of fire emergencies. Fire warden training is a vital aspect of this duty and enables businesses to nominate competent persons to manage fire safety. Failure to comply with this law can lead to severe penalties and, more importantly, jeopardise the safety of people and property.
Fire warden training should be conducted periodically, with regular refresher courses to ensure employees are up-to-date with the latest safety procedures.
Keep Your Business & Staff Safe!
Regular fire safety assessments are essential to identify and minimise potential fire hazards in your business. Without them, poor equipment, lack of training, and incompetence can lead to property damage, injuries, and even fatalities. At Onguard Fire Protection, our qualified assessors can help you stay compliant and protect your business and employees from the devastating effects of fires.
