What Are The Benefits of Having a Fire Warden?

Whilst employers are legally required to have an emergency plan in place in the event of a fire related incident, there is no legal responsibility for employees to appoint a fire warden as part of this. As a result, many companies may have come to the conclusion that they do not need to pursue creating this role within their workforce. However, this could be a major detriment to the safety of your employees, as well as resulting in you missing out on other benefits that come with appointing a fire warden, such as:

  • Consistent regulation. Having a member of staff ‘on the ground’ is crucial in ensuring that fire safety regulations are followed consistently. For example, one of the responsibilities of a fire warden is to check that no fire exits are obstructed throughout the day, as well as being on hand to clear the obstruction if one arises. Without this individual appointed, this hazard may go unchecked, resulting in a potentially hazardous situation for your employees in the event of an emergency.
  • Improved insurance policy prospects. Whilst a fire warden isn’t specified on insurance policies, fire is seen by all commercial property insurance providers as a major risk to protect against. Having a fire warden as part of your team will demonstrate your compliance with protecting against this risk. Without it, insurers may consider refusing to pay out for a fire-related claim.
  • Can take on fire training responsibilities. Fire training is an essential part of a new employee’s induction process, as well as something which should be refreshed yearly for all members of your team. In the absence of a specified fire warden to take care of this responsibility, the task would fall onto a member of your management team, eating into time that could be spent elsewhere in advancing or improving the business.
