Fire Wardens in Construction
The role of Fire Warden or Fire Marshal is a responsible position. It requires not only knowing what to do if fire breaks out, but includes many other duties too.
Other duties include running fire drills, so employees know what to do if there's a fire; making sure measures are in place to prevent fires - which includes checking smoke alarms, fire alarm systems and fire extinguishers, ensuring combustible materials are stored safely and electrical equipment is safe; and making sure exit routes aren't blocked and signs aren't missing or obscured.
This in-depth training course explains the duties of a Fire Warden or Fire Marshal. It looks at human behaviour and how people don't always act as you'd expect! It explains how to use fire extinguishers and which types of fire each extinguisher is suitable for.
This course contains all you need to know to become a fully-trained Warden or Marshal. We also offer Fire Awareness Training that is suitable for everyone.

Why is Fire Warden Training required?
Every construction site should have a designated Fire Warden, for bigger sites with more workers there should be multiple Fire Warden’s. No matter how complex or simple the project is, fire can easily occur and it is the Fire Warden's responsibility to prevent emergencies, to lead fire drills and assist everyone during a fire, among many other responsibilities.
