Should fire marshals help with fire safety checks and maintenance? Fire marshal training in London question

A responsible person must have an adequate fire evacuation plan for their workplace in the event of a fire or fire alarm operating. They must also have a sufficient number of competent persons to implement the plan when required. These competent persons (fire marshals / fire wardens etc) should also take part in any planned fire drills. The fire drills will refresh fire marshals and other staff of their duties and can help highlight any deficiencies in the fire evacuation plan.

In addition to the legal requirements above, some fire marshals assist with other tasks. These include:

  • Training new staff including temps
  • Helping to update the fire evacuation plan / fire emergency plan
  • Carrying out fire safety inspections of their workplace
  • Helping  with fire safety equipment checks

Fire safety equipment checks include assisting with weekly call alarm point test, monthly emergency lighting tests, fire extinguisher checks (monthly / quarterly), checking fire doors, fire exits and service risers are all in good order.
