Why are
Fire protection assistants * inside
so important?

Fire safety assistants play a crucial role in ensuring safety in the workplace. The presence of trained fire safety assistants can reduce the risk of fires in companies and enable a faster response in an emergency. Fire safety assistants are not only responsible for carrying out fire extinguishing work, but also for ensuring compliance with fire safety regulations and measures. They regularly check the fire safety equipment in the company to ensure that it is in perfect condition.

Another important reason why fire safety assistants are so important is the legal obligation. Employers are required by the Workplace Ordinance and the Employer's Liability Insurance Association to have a sufficient number of fire safety assistants in the company. This not only serves to protect the employees and the company, but also to fulfil the legal requirements and avoid possible penalties.

Fire protection assistants * in

By training as a fire safety assistant, a company can prepare its employees for certain emergencies. According to the law, a certain number of fire safety assistants must be present in the company. The regulation states that this should be 5 per cent of the total workforce. If there is an increased risk of fire, it should even be 10 per cent. These requirements are set out in the technical regulations for workplaces, ASR for short. It should be noted that the number of fire safety assistants relates to the number of people present. It is advisable to always have a higher number of helpers in the company to ensure safety.

Training to become a fire safety assistant can take place either externally or in the company. It is important that the trainer is qualified. Certified fire safety officers who can train fire safety assistants are qualified to do this. This training regulation is laid down in Section 10 of the Occupational Health and Safety Act and must be complied with. Regular training of fire safety assistants is recommended in order to stay up to date and to be able to act quickly and effectively in an emergency.
