Fire Safety Rules In The

UnCategorized In October of 2006, all rules for fire safety in the workplace were changed. If you were an employer or self employed within a business building or a contractor in business premises or a charity you needed to have been brought up to date on the latest improvements to fire safety. The new regulations are as follows: 1. You have to carry out a fire risk assessment which involves all possible dangers and risks. It must cover everyone in your business from staff, customers, delivery persons to warehouse personnel. 2. Get rid of any risks or minimise the risks as much as possible. For example, rid your workplace of unneeded flammable materials such as petrol cans, used paint cans. 3. Provide fire safety equipment in all areas of your workplace and have all employees know where they are stored. Label all cabinets. 4. Provide protection if the flammable or explosive materials are needed. Have fire blankets and extinguishers readily available, clearly marked and everyone knows how to use them. 5. Create a safety plan to deal with all sorts of emergencies. The main thing is get out, get low and roll. 6. Keep a main manual with copies for all employees regarding the equipment and the plans of action. Check to make sure all manuals are kept up to date. 7. Keep up to date with new employees regarding the fire safety rules in the workplace and if there is an expansion or a change in departments, make sure everyone is appraised. 8. Have regular staff meetings to keep everyone on their toes and ask them to bring their fire safety in the workplace manual with them. 9. Ask one or two staff members to do a walk through of the office or building to make sure everything is in order. They should be your regular representatives or fire marshals. 10. Invite a fire brigade representative to go through the manual and all equipment, to make sure everything is in order. You, as the employer, are ultimately responsible for the safety of all of those who are involved in the business. They are only as safe as you choose to make them. Challenge your staff weekly to .e up with new suggestions for workplace fire safety and you should have prizes ready to hand out. Make copies for the manuals. Challenge your staff to do the same procedures at their own home and have their children make up a booklet, just like the manual, with diagrams and drawings on how to keep safe at home. Award the families with the best booklets. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
