I have tried unsuccessfully to establish if there is a required number of fire wardens per staff in Victoria. Are you able to provide some guidance on this please?
There is no specific requirement on how many fire wardens you must nominate in your workplace. In accordance with your general obligation of doing all that is reasonably practicable to eliminate or reduce the risks of a fire or explosion, you need to assess the size of the levels/areas in your workplace and the level of risks on each level/area.
It is, however, quite common for a medium- to large-size business to have a chief warden and deputy warden for the whole workplace and, depending on the size of the floors and extent of risks, a floor warden for each floor and area wardens for different areas on each floor.
