Are you prepared for an emergency?
Fire wardens play an important role in ensuring your business is prepared for a fire emergency. Along with your emergency plan, fire wardens are an important risk control measure to ensure that your workplace is prepared should an emergency situation, including fire, occur.
Evacuation drills will ensure your fire wardens and workers are prepared in case of an emergency. Ideally, you should conduct evacuation drills at least once every 12 months, and every 6 months if possible.
Fire Warden Training will include:
- Fire Warden responsibilities and procedures
- Investigating the fire / Alarm / Incident
- Building fire safety
- Emergency coordination
- Human Behaviour in emergencies
- Building Fire Alarms and communication systems
- Practical Scenarios using various types of fire extinguisher
While there is no requirement set out in legislation to have fire wardens, it is important to appoint fire wardens to ensure that you meet your health and safety obligations in relation to emergency plans and procedures. Under the Australian Standard 3745-2010 Planning for emergencies in facilities, there is a requirement for an emergency control organisation to be established and the appointment of chief and deputy fire wardens for a building or facility.
