Fire Marshal Course

The Health and Safety (Fire Safety (Scotland)
Regulations 2006) and The Fire (Scotland)Act 2005 require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities, and personnel to ensure their employees are safe in an emergency fire situation. All of this is based upon your fire risk assessment, which details the measures necessary to mitigate the risk.

We are here to help you with any of this.
