The risk of fire is one of the greatest dangers in the workplace due to the potential of huge damage at great speed. Online Fire Safety Training is a useful tool to help reduce the associated risks.
In the UK, more than 22,000 non-residential fires are reported annually. The majority of these occur in workplaces. The average cost of a fire in a commercial building is £58,100 and 75% of businesses never recover from a serious fire. Premises most at risk are retail distribution, industrial and catering.
There are a variety of reasons why fires start but many of them can be avoided through an understanding of how to manage fire risk. This is increasingly important as fire authorities no longer issue fire certificates and those previously in force have no legal status. The emphasis is now on individual businesses to manage any fire risk in their premises so a clear understanding of how to ensure your business complies with Fire Safety legislation is fundamentally essential.
