What happens when the alarm sounds?
As well as the risk of death and serious injury, fire can cost businesses vast amounts of money, sometimes causing them to close permanently. Businesses owners need to ensure that their premises meet fire safety regulations and that their employees and visitors know what to do when the fire alarm sounds.
General fire safety in England and Wales is maintained through compliance with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. The legislation implements a risk-based approach to fire safety in community, industrial and business premises. It requires the responsible person (usually the employer, owner or occupier) to carry out a fire safety risk assessment, implement appropriate fire precautionary and protection measures and to maintain a fire management plan. All members of staff have a role to play in fire safety and the fire safety qualifications support these various roles.
Everyone involved with fire safety must receive appropriate information and training on fire safety issues. The provision of these online fire safety courses will assist organisations in meeting their legal obligations as well as in providing a much safer working environment for all of their employees.
