It is the job of any responsible employer to ensure that their staff is safe whilst at work and a major part of that responsibility is in respect of fire safety. At Marpol Security we provide you with highly-trained and experienced fire marshals to deal with this side of the job.
We supply fire marshals to business all over Wales, including Gwent, South Glamorgan, Mid Glamorgan, West Glamorgan, Dyfed, Powys, Gwynedd, and Clwyd. Their extensive expertise ensures a safe working environment for all your employees.
As Wales’s leading provider of fire marshals and fire warden solutions, we have much to offer companies in the country. Here are some of the services we provide:
Your new fire marshal’s first task will be to undertake a thorough examination of your existing fire safety measures. They will inspect the entire building, identifying potential fire risks. From this, they will compile a report detailing what needs to be done to bring your fire safety efforts in line with the Fire Precautions Act 1971.
The role of the fire marshal is to minimise the possibility of fire-related incidents on your company premises. Using their initial risk assessment as a starting point, they will make recommendations to your management tea, on how best to go about doing this. To do so, they will liaise with management and staff members, as well as with your local fire department.
Keeping your entire staff safe is more than a one-person job. Our fire marshals will personally train up a number of fire wardens to handle fire safety in the building on a day-to-day basis. They will be expected to co-ordinate staff and visitors alike during evacuations and fire drills. They will also receive essential fire safety training, including the use of fire blankets and fire extinguishers.
A key aspect of the initial risk assessment is determining your company’s current evacuation procedures in the event of a fire breaking out. Your fire marshal will pay close attention to these, adding their own recommendations for improvement. Their team of in-house fire wardens will then cascade all agreed changes to the rest of your staff, while the fire marshals arrange regular fire drills to help them familiarise themselves with the latest evacuation plan.
