We’re working with our client Savills on a new initiative to raise awareness across their business of fire safety. The aim is to share best practice, understand the challenges of fire safety management and ensure that the risks are managed and controlled.
Fire safety is a key part of all training and processes at Hemlow. Last month we ran our RoSPA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) refresher training module for our engineering staff, which covers fire prevention and control. The course, which runs on an ongoing basis throughout the year, is designed to ensure that all our staff are aware of the risks of fire and understand the safe systems and procedures needed to ensure a building is safe and compliant.
Fire safety is also front of mind when we’re quoting for contracts. Our Sales Director and Estimator recently attended Metro Safety’s Fire Safety CPD Seminar to understand the key duties of the Fire Safety Order 2005 and make sure our contracts are in line with the latest Fire Safety regulations.
Going forward, we have arranged for one of our preferred fire and security specialist sub-contractors, Pacific Fire, to provide us with refresher training covering legal requirements regarding fire risk assessments and responsibilities for protecting yourselves and others.
