Fire Marshals are a legal requirement for any business, and with some staff changes over the last 6 months here at Hambleside Danelaw, we needed to ensure that we have full cover for both of our buildings.
The business needs to a have robust evacuation procedures in place and we needed to ensure that all our people are safe and accounted for in the event of a Fire Evacuation. We asked for volunteer marshals and the response was very positive. With the training we succeeded in replacing/adding to the competent persons list. They will now be designated areas within the business to monitor and sweep during a fire evacuation.
The training took place on 11 October, and the attendees were: Fabiola Pedelty, Tim Willis, Will Brooks, Paul Hammill, Vince Merricks, Zdenek Galas, Wayne Nixon and Michael Martin. Well done to all those who took part.
