Fire Safety Tips for the Games

olympicbusinesspeopleIt’s going to get rather busy in London over the next few months. With road closures and additional responsibilities, it may take the emergency services longer to respond to urgent calls. You may also be considering changing the way your business or staff operate during the Games.
Here are a few things you can do to make sure you have adequate fire safety preparations in place over the Olympic period.

Review Your Risk Assessment

This could be vital if you're thinking of changing how you use your premises during the Games, which could include changing operating hours, staff working late or staying overnight.

Plan for Emergencies

With possible travel delays and staff working from home, ensure you have sufficient fire safety personnel cover, especially fire wardens and fire marshals.

Ensure Equipment is in Good Working Order

Ensure the maintenance routines for your fire alarms, extinguishers, emergency lighting and sprinklers are completely up-to-date. They can only help to protect your people and property if they're in good working order.
