Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service is holding an informal seminar to help businesses understand their legal obligations – while also helping to protect their livelihoods from the devastation of fire.
The free event takes place on Thursday, February 19 2015 at the Service Headquarters in Winsford and will help to provide delegates with information and advice to protect themselves, their customers and most importantly their livelihoods.
Head of Prevention and Protection Keith Brooks said: “Cheshire Fire Authority is committed to helping companies to reduce the risks of fire which includes fires started by arson.
“It is estimated that up to 80% of businesses are seriously affected following a fire and many never recover. Simple measures can be taken which can significantly reduce the threat.
“It is hoped that anyone who has a responsibility for undertaking fire safety audits or Fire Risk Assessments within a company can attend and be better informed for the future.”
The seminar which lasts two hours and starts at 10am, will offer a unique insight into fire safety requirements including:
Preparing for a Fire Safety Audit
• Fire Risk Assessments are your responsibility
• Common shortfalls found
• Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety Order) 2005.
