Fire accidents can occur in all types of workplaces, from construction sites to everyday offices. If a fire occurred at your place of work, would you and your staff know what to do? When it comes to safety at work, there is not a one size fits all approach, each environment will have its own procedures for evacuation and safety, as well as its own fire threats.
All working environments must have a full risk assessment of all mishappenings, as well as members of staff who are trained in fire safety. This can include things such as where fire-fighting equipment is located and where the escape routes and fire assembly points are.

Staff training is a very important thing to consider when it comes to ensuring your working environment is safe for the occupants and contents. Ensure that all staff and employees know what to do in that event, perhaps you or an appointed member of staff could undergo fire warden training too.
You should always consider fire safety training for staff. There are plenty of reputable companies that can provide full training for your staff, and these companies can usually perform fire risk assessments at your premises too, giving you a full report at the end.
