Fire Warden training is a requirement of the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order 2005.

A ratio of 1 in 10 staff should be warden trained, which may vary according to your Risk Assessment. Care homes and higher risk properties with vulnerable clients may need to increase this ratio to 1 in 5 or even 1 in 3 staff being fully trained. You should also take into account shift patterns, holidays and sickness to ensure sufficient cover at all times.

This training also needs to be refreshed periodically, usually every three years, dependent on your Risk Assessment.
