Consultancy & Training

For the safety of your employees and visitors, your premises must meet fire safety regulations and it’s critical that everyone in the building knows what to do in the event of a fire.

The law states that all employees are given regular fire safety training. And in addition, you must appoint one or more competent persons to act as fire marshal to assist with fire safety. These fire marshals must attend sufficient fire safety training to remain effective in reducing fire hazards. You must also carry out a fire safety risk assessment and implement and maintain a fire management plan.
