The first role undertaken by your new fire marshal will be a full risk assessment and appraisal of your current fire safety measures. They will check the entire building, identifying any fire risks they encounter. This will allow them to compile a report showing the changes that need to be made.
The whole purpose of a fire marshal is to limit the chance of fire-related incidents at your company. They will liaise with the local fire department and members of your staff to discuss their risk assessment report. From there, they will make recommendations one how to improve fire safety, before passing them onto your management team for implementation.
It takes more than one person – however dedicated – to keep your staff and customers safe from fire. Your fire marshal will train up several fire wardens to assist him in his day-to-day duties. This will include the use of fire safety equipment, such as fire blankets and fire extinguishers.
Part of our risk assessment involves your existing evacuation process for staff in the event of a fire. Your fire marshal will go through the current procedures in detail, adding their own recommendations for improvement to be passed onto your management team. Once approved, the fire marshal and their team of wardens will cascade it to the rest of your and arrange regular fire drills.
