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? Avoiding Fire Safety Penalties

There are many reports of business owners avoiding their duty of care to people on-site. They tend to prove 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
  • Check 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.
