Fire Safety Law and how it affects you.
- All new Health and Safety signs must now show the appropriate symbol and if necessary, the supporting text.
- All hazards must be highlighted with a safety sign if they cannot be controlled by other means.
- The location of all escape routes and fire-fighting equipment must be clearly identified.
- Employers must provide employees with training in the understanding of safety signs.
Qualified advice from our fire trainer is available to suit you and we offer courses to employers to familiarise your staff how to deal with hazards and fires in all domestic or commercial situations, that could save lives and avoid disaster. Quick thinking is essential and when people are confident they know what to do they can spring into action to save their lives, and others, and help to avoid irreparable damage to their workplace from a fire event.
Fire courses also show delegates how to prevent fire by properly undertaking risk assessment of their activities. Our fire trainer will also assess your property for you.
