The lockdown and workplace closures caused by the coronavirus pandemic are beginning to ease and more commercial buildings such as offices, industrial premises, retail outlets and leisure facilities are beginning to re-open.
As these buildings have potentially been unused for many weeks, Tecserv UK is taking the opportunity to remind Directors and the Responsible Individual(s) to be vigilant about fire safety within their premises as employees begin a staged return to work.
We have produced the Tecserv Back to Work Guide which is based on a document issued by The Fire Service. It is intended to refresh your mind about fire safety regulation and provides some top tips for key areas to assess in order that business owners are reminded of their responsibilities in respect of fire safety in the workplace and are able to ensure their people, property and processes remain protected when business resumes.
The guide provides some useful top tips on everything from conducting a fire risk assessment, keeping fire exits and escape routes clear, to your responsibilities for regular testing of fire alarm systems and ensuring maintenance inspections up to date.
