Fire Safety – are your people and procedures up to scratch?

Fire Safety - are your people and procedures up to scratch?

Does your company do everything it can to protect lives, livelihoods and the business from fire?

Fire represents one of the most significant risks in the workplace. It is a legal requirement to have adequate fire safety measures and procedures in place. The key thing to remember about fires in the workplace is that most of them are preventable.

Managing fire safety is a multi-part process which stipulates that you must:

  • Carry out a fire risk assessment
  • Implement preventative and protective measures
  • Ensure all staff are aware of and trained in fire prevention
  • Plan and implement fire containment and evacuation procedures
  • Carry out continual risk and procedure assessments

Find out how to comply with legislation on our British Safety Council Fire Risk Assessment course and Principles In Fire Safety – Fire Warden course.
