As a responsible employer, you are expected to ensure that you staff are safe in the event of a fire at work. The best way to live up to this responsibility is to hire a trained and qualified professional fire marshal.
Here at Marpol Security we supply business across the East Midlands with fire marshals, including those in Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire and Rutland. They advise, inspect, and train, resulting in greater fire safety awareness among your staff.
As the East Midlands’s leading provider of fire marshals and fire warden solutions, we have much to offer companies in the region. Here are some of the services we provide:
The first thing our fire marshals will do is conduct an in-depth assessment of the potential fire risks in your building. This is to make sure the property adheres to the regulations laid down in the Fire Precautions Act 1971.
The role of the fire marshal is all about fire prevention – minimising risk and preventing fire hazards in the workplace. Our fire marshals liaise with the local fire department to get any relevant local advice. They also put forward recommendations to your management team for improvements to the building’s fire safety infrastructure.
Of course, our fire marshals won’t be there all day, every day. You will need your own in-house team of fire wardens, drawn from your own staff. They will be responsible for directing employees and visitors during fire drills and actual fire alarms. Our fire marshals will give your fire wardens all the training they need to excel in this essential role.
Our fire marshals will also take a good look at your company’s current fire evacuation procedure, to see that it’s fit for purpose. They will recommend changes that reduce employee risk and help you comply with all Fire Safety Regulations. These new evacuation procedures will be filtered down to your team via your on-site fire wardens. Our fire marshals will also run regular drills to test the efficacy of the new arrangements.
