Fire in the Workplace

Fire is not something that should be dismissed as unlikely to happen, or not taken seriously. This is especially true for businesses which have far greater risk of fire such as those with a large number of staff, customers and visitors on the premises as well as various potential fire hazards such as machinery, equipment, electricals and chemicals.

A large percentage of businesses who experience a workplace fire do not recover, so doing everything you can to prevent fire from happening or ensuring that your employees know exactly what to do can go a long way to helping limit the damage and evacuate everyone safely.

Why is fire safety training important for businesses?

As well as being a legal requirement, the impact of fire on a business can be devastating and have long term effects for the company as well as those involved.

  • People - Death or serious injury are a very real consequence of fire and avoiding this is the number one priority when it comes to fire safety.
  • Property – Fire damage to premises and any stock, equipment, tools or products can be difficult, expensive or even impossible to replace.
  • Company – There can be huge costs involved following a fire with outgoings such insurance premiums, paying workers, temporary workspace or replacing equipment and anything not covered by the insurance. In addition to this, the inevitable downtime can lead to a significant drop in income and loss of customers.

On an employees first day they should undergo adequate fire safety training as part of their induction and then a refresher training session annually to keep knowledge up to date and in the front of their mind. This is relevant for all employees but those with certain jobs or responsibilities may need to undergo more specific, in-depth training or have it more frequently.

This may include;

  • Those responsible for the safety of hotel guests, vulnerable residents or patients
  • Places with a high risk of fire
  • Responsible team members
  • Department heads and floor supervisors
  • Fire marshals
  • Central control room staff
  • Receptionists, security, kitchen, caring and hotel staff
  • Attendants and stewards
  • Engineering and maintenance staff

The Regulatory Reform Order 2005, specifies that it is a legal requirement for all staff to receive adequate fire safety training on induction and at regular intervals following that. It falls to the employer, occupier, landlord, owner or manager as the responsible person for fire safety to ensure that this is carried out and kept up to date.

Failure to ensure sufficient fire safety training can result in severe fines or even prosecution and a prison sentence for those responsible. There is also the risk that you will be liable for damages in the event that someone becomes injured as a result of fire due to a lack of training.
