What is a Fire Warden?
It is a legal requirement that one or more ‘competent persons’ are designated within each workplace to take charge of all fire safety aspects. This person is called a Fire Warden.
A Fire Warden works together with the employer to ensure that fire safety measures and evacuation procedures are in place and that they are effective in the event of an emergency. These is called a fire safety risk assessment.
This is in line with UK Fire Safety Regulations and the Fire Safety Order Regulatory Reform Order 2005.
