7 Duties of a Fire Warden
Key duties of fire wardens include:
to assist in implementing and improving effective emergency procedures in your workplace;
to help prevent emergencies by monitoring the adequacy of the fire risk control measures;
to raise awareness with other staff about the fire hazards that exist in your workplace;
to instruct workers in how to respond in an emergency;
to lead the fire drills and real evacuation procedures – they must be familiar with all escape routes and exits from their designated area;
to ensure all workers are accounted for during an evacuation; and
to assist all people in the workplace should an emergency occur, including assisting people with special needs, e.g. helping someone in a wheelchair to evacuate.
If the fire alarm is sounded, fire wardens have a duty to assist in the safe evacuation of workers and visitors from your workplace immediately, and to ensure that their designated area has been cleared.
