It is important that all staff are trained to understand fire safety procedures so that when on site they are aware of fire risks, ways to prevent them and what to do in case a fire occurs.

It is also a legal requirement to have adequate fire marshal coverage on site at all times. This means that a proportion of staff will need to be fully trained Fire Marshals to carry out regular checks, update procedures, support fire drills and evacuations, provide firefighters with layouts and relevant information regarding the building as well as staff headcounts.

The number of trained Fire Marshals depends on the size and complexity of a site but it is important that adequate cover is always maintained.
