With a number of serious fires occurring around Coventry of late, JCH Safety would like to remind readers of how to be fire safe at work.
Fire is a major risk in workplaces and the consequences of not having a suitable fire risk assessment in place can be catastrophic. Good fire safety always starts with a fire risk assessment. The assessments are required by law, and it is concerning how many companies either do not have an up to date assessment, or don’t know what a fire risk assessment is, and as a result, don’t have one in place at all.
Fire risk assessments are a detailed assessment of the risk of fire to a business. If you employ more than 5 staff, by law, you must have a detailed, written, fire risk assessment in place. Failure to do so puts you and your company at risk of prosecution.
If you would like to find out more, please contact us.
