If you own or manage a business, the safety of your team in the event of a fire is a key responsibility. At Marpol Security we supply highly-trained and experienced fire marshals to handle this aspect of your job.
We have placed professional fire marshals with companies across Merseyside, including Liverpool, Sefton, Bootle, Southport, Knowsley, Huyton, St Helens, the Wirral, Wallasey, Birkenhead, and beyond. Their extensive hands-on experience helps you maintain a safe working environment for staff and visitors alike.
As Merseyside’s leading provider of fire marshals and fire warden solutions, we have much to offer companies in the county. Here are some of the services we provide:
Before any improvements can be made to your fir safety plan, your new fire marshal needs to perform a thorough examination of the measures you already have in place. They will complete a full inspection of the property, in which they will identify potential fire hazards. Following their inspection, they will compile a detailed report listing the changes required to bring your fire safety procedures in line with the Fire Precautions Act 1971.
Your fire marshal will use their risk assessment as a baseline from which develop a new set of fire safety guidelines for your company. They will liaise with management and staff members, as well as the local fire department before presenting their recommendations to your management team for approval.
Of course, it takes more than a single fire marshal to ensure your team is safe in the event of a fire. Your marshal will ensure that several members of staff are trained up to take the role of fire warden. It will be their responsibility to deal with fire safety concerns across the business on a day-to-day basis. They will co-ordinate all staff and visitors during fire drills and evacuations and will receive the appropriate training in the use of fire safety equipment.
Putting together a safe and effective fire evacuation strategy is a key role for your fire marshal. They will start by assessing your current plan, usually through arranging a fire drill. They will then add their own recommendations for how the strategy may be improved. This will be cascaded to the rest of your staff through the fire marshal’s in-house team of wardens. Once this has been done, a further fire drill will be arranged so that they can familiarise themselves with the latest procedures.
