The safety of your employees is a key concern for any business owner, especially when it comes to fire. This is not something any responsible employer should leave to an amateur, which is why suitably-qualified and experience fire marshals are so much in demand across all industry sectors.
At Marpol Security, we provide businesses in and around Blackpool with experienced fire marshals to help them keep their staff and visitors safe. Our marshals cover the whole town, including Blackpool North, Blackpool Central West, Blackpool Central, and Blackpool South, as well as nearby Fleetwood, Torentum, Lytham, St. Annes, and Wyre.
As Blackpool’s leading provider of fire marshals and fire warden solutions, we have much to offer companies across the town. Here are some of the services we provide:
The first task to be undertaken by your new fire marshal is a detailed and thorough risk management assessment of your building and grounds. They will check all existing measures and making sure they are compliant with the Fire Precautions Act 1971 and all subsequent fire safety legislation.
Your fire marshal will take feedback from your management team, staff, and the local fire department regarding any concerns they might have regarding fire safety. This, combined with their initial risk management assessment, will be used to draft proposals for improved fire prevention in your building. This will be forwarded onto you for your approval, prior to being implemented.
Our fire marshals are in high demand across Blackpool and the rest of the UK. As such, they often work for multiple businesses concurrently. In order to keep your staff safe at all times, part of their role is to train up fire wardens from among your team. They will be responsible for day-to-day fire safety in your company, including fire drills and evacuations. As part of their training, they will be shown how to operate fire safety equipment.
A key duty of your fire marshal is to ensure that your evacuation procedures are as safe and effective as they can be. As well as recommending changes to your existing procedures, your fire marshal will (with the assistance of their on-site fire wardens) cascade the new evacuation process to your team. They will also arrange regular fire drills to ensure all members of staff are familiar with the new protocols.
