Top Business Tips For Fire Safety Kent
- Employ a fire prevention officer
Often fire prevention and management comes from top-level management. Often, they believe they are too busy to focus on fire prevention. Instead, it is well worth offering full training and guidance to a capable person for them to become a fire prevention officer. They can liaise directly with fire safety services to ensure your business is always up to date and fire safe.
Risk Safety Services can work directly with your fire prevention officer to provide training and assistance to equip them with all of the knowledge and tools they need.
- Conduct regular smoking assessments
Many businesses create a designated smoking area for their employees. However, after a while, employees may forget to go to the designated area. Furthermore, employees may be using waste bins rather than ashtrays for discarded smoking equipment. It is wise to conduct a regular assessment of the smoking area. This will ensure the designated smoking area is safe, there are sufficient ashtrays that are weighted down and there are no potential fire hazards nearby.
- Be aware of arson
One of the most significant fire risks to businesses is actually arson. This is something that very few businesses consider as a risk. Make sure you’re aware of the risk of arson by making sure you have a plan to lock doors at the end of the working day. You should also make sure the entrance and outside are free from combustible material.
