Fire is one of the greatest risks to people in the home and at work. Last year around 325 people died in the home and workplace and over 9,000 people injuried. The cost to business and society are colossal, estimated to be in excess of £7 billion. Simply actions could significantly reduce the risk and costs. The largest cause of fire in business is arson, again simple actions could reduce your business risk of becoming a victim.
We have produced some documents to assist you to find solutions for fire safety and can train your staff to assist you with compliance or act as Fire Marshals.
The first is a Quickguide to the "Fire Safety Order"
followed by a more detailed checklist that takes you through each of the requirement of each Article (parts of the Order), so that you can see where you need to do more work to ensure fire safety.
The last piece of guidance is to help you get sufficent numbers or Fire Marshals/Wardens (safety assistants) to assit you with managing fire safety in your business. Don't forget we provide quality and affordable Fire Marshal training for them and may be able to customise for your specific needs.
Finally, There is much good advice and guidance provided by the Government to business for Fire Safety compliance, including 12 Fire Safety Risk Assessment Guides for different workplaces, from offices to outdoor events, and an additional suppliment for escape of Disabled Persons, all available free from www.gov.uk.
