Despite the major changes that the fight against COVID-19 has introduced, the government has not relaxed fire safety requirements for business owners. Whether your business is currently closed, or you’re still operating during lockdown, it’s likely that your fire risk will change.
- Is your Fire Risk Assessment up to date? If your workplace has been closed – or if your way of working has significantly changed – that can change your fire risk.
- Are your escape routes still viable?
- Are your fire marshals coming back to work or are they furloughed? Can you train anyone else up in the meantime?
