2022 A New Year and a great opportunity for all ‘Responsible Persons’ in London and Greater Manchester to step up and have a fresh approach to Fire Safety!

Perhaps in the past Fire Safety has been pushed onto the back burner as there are always other priorities but why not have a re-think and for 2022 make it the year to focus of Fire Safety!

As the identified ‘Responsible Person’ you are ultimately the person responsible for the safety of your Staff, Visitors, Residents and of course the Building! The buck lies with you! So instead of putting Fire Safety off why not sit down and rethink your priorities.

First Step – Check you Fire Safety Risk Assessment – is it up to date? Is it ‘suitable and sufficient’? Does it have a Fire Safety Emergency Plan? If the answer is ‘no’ to any of the above, then it’s time to get a move on and find a Fire Safety Risk Assessor who is qualified and insured to carryout a Fire Safety Inspection/Audit.

Don’t take a chance on just any Fire Protection Service company offering all kinds of cheap deals take your time and find someone independent, qualified and fully insured.

Once you have a Fire Safety Assessor onboard and the Fire Safety Risk Assessment has been completed it is then time for the identified ‘Responsible Person’ to step up and take control.

As part of the Fire Risk Assessment you will be supplied with a Fire Safety Management Plan – Significant Findings. This is basically your ‘job list’ – don’t just keep it in the drawer and think you have done your bit by getting and report in place – it’s only the beginning. It is your responsibility now to action on all the findings!

If you can’t physically complete the Fire Safety Actions yourself then you will need to call in the professionals, but you can’t ignore it. The Fire Safety Actions are what you have to do to put the Fire Safety deficiencies right. Get a good team of people around you and get the jobs done. It is imperative that you keep the Fire Safety Management Plan up to date so that if for some reason the Fire Brigade visit, or your insurance company want to see it – the document is up to date and informative as it reflects the level of Management in place.

With Halloween and Fire Work Night safely delivered, now many Shops, Cafes and Restaurants turn their focus towards Christmas! After a restricted year last year perhaps, it might be nice to get the twinkling lights and bauble’s out a little earlier!

It is not just Shops, Cafes and Restaurants who like to decorate, you have Offices, Hotels, Care Homes and Schools all wanting to add a bit of sparkle to their environment – after all it is the time to be jolly!

But, first let us take a minute to think about Fire safety because after all the last thing we want is a Fire! Remember that the Christmas decorations have been hidden in a cupboard or in a loft space for a year and before you use them (especially the lights) we need to check for any signs of damage. Are there any bare wires or is there any signs of overheating and check how many years you have had them – ask yourself is it time for a new set?

Candles is another serious consideration, why not try the LED candles there are some super ones that give a great ambiance, and they are a lot safer!

The other important check is making sure that the Fire Safety Risk Assessment for the premise is current and any deficiencies identified within the report have been addressed. Its important to keep you risk of Fire low and any additional ignitions sources need to be monitored closely.

If you would like any Fire Safety advice before you start your Christmas preparations or you want to book a Fire Safety Risk Assessment, then give us a call. We have a friendly support team in London (0781 8888626) and Manchester (07824 185293) or click here to book an appointment.
