Making Sure Your Children Are Safe?
More than four hundred fire safety visits have taken place in Plymouth at schools and nurseries in the city
It's to cut down the potential loss of life and injuries if a fire did occur.
Fire officers offer clear and practical advice to owners unsure of the latest fire regulations or they just want advice on how to improve fire safety at their premices.
They look at labels, risk assessments, number of exit points and the location of the master control.
The law applies to you if you are:
- responsible for business premises
an employer or self-employed with business premises
responsible for a part of a dwelling where that part is solely used for business purposes
a charity or voluntary organisation
a contractor with a degree of control over any premises
providing accommodation for paying guests
Under the FSO, the responsible person must carry out a fire safety risk assessment and implement and maintain a fire management plan.
