Fire Marshal (1 day)

Fire Marshal
Fires in the workplace can have massive effects on both businesses and individuals. A serious fire can often result in a company closing for good and the cost to individual workers can be far greater. Being aware of hazards and understanding some basic principles can reduce the risks of fire and make workplaces safer for everyone. It is the role of the Fire Marshal to manage a fire or other similar emergency efficiently and effectively. This course has been designed with the core aim of creating a confident person to take charge in an emergency.
