Your company could be met with a heavy fine if you do not meet fire protection or fire safety standards. Every company and organisation is responsible for ensuring its sites and premises meet and adhere to the minimum fire safety regulations. Yet time and again, there is news of companies being heavily fined for not doing so. Read more.

Why are Fire Protection measures for a premises so vital?

The latest stories concerning business owners, or in this case HMOs, that commit a dereliction of their duty of care to people who use and/or are regularly on their premises and site, shows that inadequate fire protection measures can be fatal to people and businesses.

Fire Alarm and Flames

Essentially, negligent companies and businesses are putting the lives of their staff, customers, and visitors at risk by failing to regularly check and ensure that they meet commercial fire safety regulations and that adequate fire protection measures are in place.

The incentive to put these measures in place is clear: fire protection can save people’s lives, and save businesses money.

Reasons why businesses fail to meet commercial Fire Protection standards

Fire Safety strategy
