Do your staff know how to minimise the risk of fire ?
Minimising the risk of fire breaking out is the number one priority in your fire safety strategy, as well as being a requirement of fire safety law. Good housekeeping, including some simple steps such as regular testing of electrical appliances, keeping areas free of rubbish and staff training can have a positive impact on reducing the risk of fire.
In the event of a fire, would you and your staff know what to do? How confident are you that you and your staff would act to prevent the spread of the fire, stay safe and keep calm?
If you can’t answer yes to these questions, then completing a training session can be a cost effective and useful tool to provide employees with the confidence and skills that they will need should a fire break out.
