Fire Safety Awareness
Regardless of legislation, however, I consider it of great benefit to provide all staff with an understanding of general fire safety awareness. This helps them recognise the hazards and risks within the business as a whole, and in their area of work in particular. Hopefully, following suitable training, they will ensure that they do not endanger your business through unsafe practices. They will also be more aware of potential hazards and therefore more inclined to bring them to your attention.
Fire Safety, as well as Health & Safety, legislation requires that all staff receive training and instruction in your fire safety and evacuation procedures. This involves providing all staff with knowledge in how to raise an alarm in the event of a fire as well as the location of all alarm activation devices. It also includes showing them all the potential fire exits from thye building as well as the location of the safe Assembly Area.
All the above should be included in the induction program for all new members of staff.
In short…..you benefit from a safer business.
