Basic Fire Safety Awareness and Fire Marshal Training
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires all of the practice team to have ‘adequate instruction and training’ in the event of a fire. The order brought about significant changes in the responsibility for the prevention of fires and knowledge required by employees in the event of a fire in the workplace.
Fire certificates are no longer issued and those previously in force prior to the order have no legal status. The order requires anyone who has control in a practice, or anyone who has a ‘degree of control’ over areas of the practice or systems to be designated as a ‘responsible person’.
