Do you have the correct firefighting equipment?

To keep your building, staff and visitors safe, it makes sense that your business should have firefighting equipment like fire extinguishers. But even more than that, it’s also a legal requirement, as outlined in the Fire Safety Order 2005.  

Fire extinguishers are one of the most common ways to extinguish small fires. However, what the Fire Safety Order doesn’t tell you is how many extinguishers you need, or what types you need. This is because it very much depends on the unique characteristics of your premises. 

This is why fire risk assessment will come into play because this is what will provide you with all these details.  

Always make sure you have the right fire risk assessment for your business and make sure that you’re complying with the law.
