Does your Portsmouth business need
Fire Safety Training?

While it is not compulsory for businesses and organisations in Portsmouth and the rest of the UK to train all employees in basic fire awareness, it is highly advisable.

However, any organisation employing five or more people in Portsmouth, or anywhere else in the UK, is obligated by law to complete a written and specific fire risk assessment (FRA). Your FRA should state the number of fire marshals that you require, and the responsible person is duty bound to nominate sufficient numbers of competent people within the organisation to assist with fire safety duties by becoming fire marshals.

The role of fire marshals is to assist with evacuation and fire mitigation, and to ensure the safety of critical staff members. This means that employees who are designated to undertake the role of fire marshal will need to complete an advanced level of fire safety training, over and above basic fire awareness training that is given more generally to employees.

Do businesses in Portsmouth need fire marshals?

Having a fire marshal(s) helps you to meet your legal obligations as set out in the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

The responsible person is duty bound to nominate enough competent people within the organisation to assist with fire safety duties. The number of fire marshals required should be identified in your fire risk assessment. 

What are the duties of a fire marshal within a business or organisation in Portsmouth?

A fire marshal’s duties include fire detection, firefighting (if safe to do so), and providing fire safety and evacuation assistance.

What is the difference between a fire warden and a fire marshal?

A Fire Warden and a Fire Marshal are essentially the same thing, but each completes a slightly different part of the job. A Fire Warden makes sure that the premises are evacuated and are the last person out of the building, while a Fire Marshal should go to the fire assembly point and manage the evacuation from outside of the building.
