Fire Safety Checks and Tests – What Needs Doing and When.
Fire safety in the workplace is more than what to do if the fire alarm sounds, where the evacuation assembly point is and what extinguishers are there. By managing the fire safety, carrying out regular checks and tests, and tidying up before the Fire Officer visits, the work place stays a safe place to be. Prevention is better than cure meaning that an effective fire safety management system keeps staff, visitors and the business safe from fire. Get the Fire Safety Checks and Tests right and half the battle is won.
Experience has shown that the majority of employers are still unaware of their fire safety responsibilities. From Fire Risk Assessments to evacuation drills to maintenance and servicing, there is a lot to manage and record.
This short guide is a simple table which is provides a check list of what should be done and how often. It is not a definitive guide as no two workplaces are alike, however it does provide a start point.
