Staff training

The actions of staff if there is a fire are likely to be crucial to their safety and that of other people at the event or venue.

The responsible person should ensure that all staff and contractors are aware of the emergency plan and are familiar with the escape routes. All staff or volunteers should receive basic fire safety training which should take account of the findings of the fire risk assessment and be easily understood.

The amount of training should be appropriate to the role that members of staff will be expected to carry out if a fire occurs. Particular attention should be given to staff with key fire safety duties (and their nominated deputies) to ensure that the emergency plan can be implemented quickly and efficiently.

It may be appropriate to test your emergency plans with situation drills or table-top exercises prior to your event – such emergency drills need not involve the public, but all training should be recorded.
