What is a Fire Marshal? A Fire Marshal, also known as a Fire Warden, is a person responsible for Fire Safety measurements within a company and/or a building. The Fire Marshal has to undertake professional training with regards to what precautions need to be taken, how to maintain fire extinguishers, maintaining the fire evacuation details in place together with fire exists, fire lights and fire alarms.
By law every company or building must have Fire Marshals in place for the safety of the employees and any visitors. The number of Fire Marshals needed will be noted upon undertaking a Fire Risk Assessment. There are businesses that are classed as high risk therefore they need more Fire Marshals trained, i.e. care homes, hotels, schools, building sites, etc.

IF YOU ARE AN EMPLOYER OR A COMPANY PLEASE READ BELOW TO UNDERSTAND HOW YOU CAN STAY ON TRACK WITH THE HSE LAW FROM THE FIRE SAFETY ASPECT.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order2005 became law in October the 1st 2006. The Fire Safety Order applies to England and Wales only, Scotland has its own legislation, the Fire Safety (Scotland) Regulations 2006, which are similar in that they are risk assessment based, but there are some slight differences such as referring to 'person or persons who have control to any extent of the relevant premises' rather than a 'responsible person'.
Please get in touch to find out more information with regards to the law on Fire Safety. A very helpful tool for all companies Risk Assessments is from the HSE website, this is a very good way to see if your company complies with the rules and regulations: available Fire Case studies can be found on http://www.hse.gov.uk/risk/casestudies/
If you are wondering why is this necessary, the answer is simple: Insurance companies will no doubt include clauses to ensure their clients are complying with the law, with obvious connotations where there is a lack of compliance, they may refuse to pay some or all of an insurance claim.
