Certified Online Training

Fire Marshal/Fire Warden


Current legislation, The Safety, Health and Welfare Act (2005), indicates that every workplace regardless of the number of employees are required by law to provide sufficient training in fire awareness to every member of staff.

This course fulfills the Irish legislative training requirements recognised as being a fully qualified fire marshal /warden. Importantly, it highlights your legal duties as acting fire marshal within the workplace and furthermore provides candidates with essential information on understanding fire, potential fire hazards within the office, fire safety arrangements and further information on what an emergency fire evacuation should entail.

When it comes to fire safety it is critical that we think prevention rather than reaction, as time and knowledge saves lives. With this in mind this course provides candidates with the necessary tools to take on fire safety responsibilities and be able to maintain and support employee welfare within the workplace.

Who is this for?

This course is ideal for anyone taking on the role of fire marshal/ warden within the workplace.
