How Often Should Training Be Provided for Fire Marshals?

Refresher courses should be taken every two years as long as the training is thorough and provides sufficient information.

How Often Should I Implement a Fire Drill?

Fire drills should be actioned every 6 months so you can check the efficiency of the process.

How Many Fire Marshals Do I Need?

There should always be a minimum number of two fire marshals per office, but depending on the layout, industry, and amount of staff, this number could be higher. If your work environment involves employees working with flammable materials, you will need more fire marshals even if you are a small company. In general, make sure every area in the building is covered by a marshal and that the marshal can evacuate the area, double check for those left behind, get out of the building, and register the people in their group in around two minutes.

For those who cannot appointment enough fire marshals for the industry, layout, and occupants, you can share marshals with companies situated next to you ? particularly if you share a building. If this is the only option for you, a written agreement must be presented along with all employees being briefed.
