CAN YOU AFFORD TO BURN YOUR BUSINESS?

Are you familiar with the phrase "It won't happen to us"? I'm sure you are. Let me assure you however IT DOES!

Every day I receive reports of someone's property going up in smoke, someone's livelihood stopping within hours of a fire starting. Don't be the next victim of this deadly force.

If you employ staff in any of your premises it's essential that they receive suitable training in prevention of fire and how to deal with dangerous fire situations at work. The "Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (part 1 para 21) sets out the requirements for staff to be trained.

Regardless of it being your legal obligation to train staff don't you think you owe it to them to make sure they are aware of the risks associated with fire? Many WELL ...people are killed in fires at work simply because the business owner "couldn't be bothered" to give the training or simply sat them down and showed them a video. It's not on!
