Who should attend

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety Order) requires the College “to nominate a sufficient number of competent persons to implement procedures in so far as they relate to the evacuation of relevant persons from the premises.” Departments are required to nominate staff to fulfil these roles, and the Fire Safety team deliver training to demonstrate the competency of Fire Wardens.

The only restrictions on who can be a Fire Warden are that they must be a staff member and cannot have a Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP) in place.

NB The training is now being delivered by building.
Fire Wardens should attend based on which building they are located.
This training should be undertaken based on risk assessment.

Essential Information

Before attending, all participants must complete the mandatory e-learning course Fire Safety and Awareness Training. Bookings should be made via Safety Officers or Senior Hall Wardens using the Third Party booking form.
A Fire Prevention and Fire Safety at Work (practical) course is also run as part of the Fire Safety Policy.
