During an emergency evacuation or workplace fire, nobody in the workforce is more important than a Fire Warden. It is not an exaggeration to say their role is absolutely critical in potentially saving lives or providing support for the Fire Service. To be able to remain calm and authoritative in an emergency is an admirable quality.
This Fire Warden Training course can make everyone aware of fire safety legislation and what to do during an emergency evacuation. But more importantly, it will inform and teach you of the roles and responsibilities that a Fire Warden has during a drill, an evacuation, or a genuine emergency. It will also inform you of preventative measures that you can take action and escalate to superiors, making your workplace a safer place for everyone.
By the end of the course, you’ll have learnt how to be an effective and proactive Fire Warden, and be prepared to take charge of people’s safety during a workplace emergency. You’ll also become aware of how to assess risks, update evacuation plans, and have your colleagues ready and able to act accordingly during a distressing event.

In module 3, the learning will start with the main steps and key considerations of risk assessment. You’ll then walk through the details of the stages of risk assessment. The curtain of this third module will be drawn by talking about daily/ weekly risk assessments and the overview checklist.
As the name suggests, the fire plan and safety arrangements will take centre stage of this module 4. It will roll on by discussing the topics like fire prevention, the fire evacuation plan, fire safety arrangements and fire warden’s role in it, housekeeping, etc. Fire detection warning systems, emergency routes and exits, and fire safety signs will also get a detailed explanation in this module.
This short module will discuss the various strategies of fire evacuation procedures. After shedding light on the five main strategies of evacuating staff, module 5 will proceed to discuss the steps of a fire warden’s role in fire evacuation.

This final module is also a short one and based on the personal emergency evacuation plans (PEEP). An introduction to PEEP, who may need PEEP, and what should a PEEP contain will be discussed briefly in module 6 to give you a proper understanding of PEEP or, personal emergency evacuation plans.
