Fire doesn’t just kill, it can destroy your business!
Every year, people die or are seriously injured as a result of a fire in the workplace. Fire costs businesses vast sums of money, sometimes causing them to close permanently. It’s vital that your premises meet fire safety regulations and that you ensure all your employees and visitors know what action to take in the event of a fire or emergency.
If you own or manage a business, you are required by law to protect everyone who works in or visits your building from the threat of fire as far as is possible. This involves assessing the risks and specific hazards present within your environment and then installing appropriate fire safety measures accordingly, this includes appointing competent Fire Marshals.
