Basic Fire Safety; why is it so important?
You could be fined or go to prison if you don’t follow fire safety regulations.
Minor penalties can be up to £5,000. Major penalties can have unlimited fines and up to 2 years in prison. Having a good fire extinguisher, placed strategically in the office is not enough to ensure fire safety in the workplace. Employers should provide adequate training for employees to prevent fatal/non-fatal accidents and injuries. Fire and safety training courses can be found online and these certificated courses will provide adequate education in this crucial subject. Training everyone through the online route is cheaper and effective, but most of all will educate everyone at the same level, about basic elements of fire prevention and protection. The other important consideration is that learning this subject will help people to handle the hazardous situation with little anxiety.
