Fire Strike Saturday 19 October

Once again the Fire Brigade are striking - only this time its a Saturday.  If you have employees working on Saturday then this definitely applies to you - however it is common sense to take precautions anyway.

As before, businesses need to ensure that their fire risk assessment is up to date.  If you have employees working on Saturday then measures reducing the risk of fire need to be put in place and emergency plan to ensure evacuation without the need for the Fire Brigade.

Ensure you know who is working this Saturday and that you have considered their safety, delaying activities that have increased risk of fire, rescheduling deliveries of flammable substances, reducing inventories of flammable or toxic items.
