Fire training – corona virus
Fire training corona virus advice: This short guide gives advice on what to do at your workplace during the current pandemic:
Are there less staff in the workplace? No – Continue with current fire evacuation plans and also disabled plans. Yes – Consider changing fire plans. A roll call may be appropriate if there are small numbers of staff.
Are all fire marshals and also fire wardens at work or are they working from home / self isolating? Less fire marshals – Provide some simple in house training for new fire marshals. About the same – Continue as usual, unless there a lot less staff at work, then a roll call may be better.
Are fire safety checks still be carried out? Fire alarms, emergency lighting, extinguishers and also other safety measures are vital to keep those in a building safe. These measures must be maintained and entered into the log book. If the person who normally does this is not at work, alternative requirements will be needed.
Less people at work? Carry out a fire drill, so any new temporary arrangements can be checked to see if they work.
