Fire Safety Warden - off the shelf elearning courses.

Employers are required by law to appoint Fire Wardens to assist with the evacuation, contact the emergency services and use fire extinguishers in case of a fire.

Fire Wardens in the workplace hold special duties and responsibilities in case of a fire. Your designated Fire Warden must be aware of these duties and responsibilities, such as promoting fire safety in the workplace and prepare for a fire emergency. They also need to know how the fire spreads and what the countermeasures that they need to undertake are.

At Sponge, we have created the Fire Warden eLearning Course that enables the user to understand their roles and responsibilities as a Fire Warden. The course is also suitable for fire marshals, line managers, supervisors and safety representatives in low-risk environments. As a pre-requisite to this training, the user must complete the Fire Safety training, which has a special focus on fire extinguishers and their use in different situations.

Fully online and interactive, available 24/7 on any device and with no time limits, thanks to our state-of-the-art LMS. Complete with an assessment at the end, a certificate can be downloaded upon successful completion of the eLearning Module. This elearning course has been assured by RoSPA Qualifications.
