If you run a company, you are responsible for the safety and well-being of your staff and customers alike, and this includes matters of fire safety. While you may not know the ins and outs of fire safety legislation, here at Marpol Security, we have people who do. We provide professional fire marshals to assist you in making your work environment a safe one for all.
We provide businesses across North Wales with fully-trained and experienced fire marshals. This includes companies as far apart as Wrexham, Rhyl, Llandudno, Pwllheli, Prestatyn, Tywyn, Bangor, St. Asaph, Harlech, Caernarfon, Conwy, and beyond.
As North Wales’s leading provider of fire marshals and fire warden solutions, we have much to offer companies across the country. Here are some of the services we provide:
The first job undertaken by your new fire marshal will be a thorough examination of all current fire safety procedures in your workplace. The purpose here is to identify potential risks and see which areas are in need of improvement. This is a key responsibility, as all workplaces must abide by the regulations laid out in the Fire Precautions Act 1971.
It’s a well-known fact that prevention is better than a cure and this is just as true when it comes to fire safety. Better by far to minimise the chance of a fire than to have contingencies in place for every kind of fire outbreak that could occur. Your fire marshal will use the original risk assessment to make recommendations in how best to safeguard your property and staff, liaising with your team and the local fire department to do so.
Our fire marshals are expected to assist several businesses in your local area with their fire safety requirements. To ensure that your company is protected during the times they are unavailable, they will personally train several members of your staff as in-house fire wardens. They will be responsibility for fire safety on a day-to-day basis and will be fully trained in the use of fire blankets, extinguishers, and other fire safety equipment.
Of course, evacuating your staff from the building in the event of a fire is a key component of the fire marshal role. They will assess your current procedures and determine areas where improvements can be made in terms of speed and safety. These will be cascaded to your employees with the help of the fire wardens, who will also be trained up to assist in the evacuation process. In addition, your fire marshal will arrange periodic fire drills, so everybody knows what to do in an emergency.
