Ask yourself:

Would you like to be a Fire Warden for your company or project? Could you evacuate your colleagues safely? – Could you plan and evacuate your family from your home?

Noel Kelly has a MSc in Environmental Health and Safety and is qualified to provide you with the requirements for all your Fire Safety needs.

Section 11(1)(c) of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 states that the employer is required to:

‘designate employees to implement the plans, procedures and measures concerning fire and emergency. These designated employees are commonly called fire wardens or fire officers’

There is a legal requirement on employers to prepare an Emergency Plan that outlines how the workplace will be evacuated in the event of a fire outbreak. Fire Wardens are designated the responsibility of executing this plan in an emergency situation. This one-day course aims to inform Fire Wardens of their responsibilities in running a fire drill effectively and safety. It also details the steps involved in developing an Emergency Plan for the workplace, in the event that one does not currently exist.

Who should attend?
