11:00 am - 11:45 am
Too many business owners have the “it won’t happen to me” mentality when it comes to fire safety in the workplace. But fire safety is a hugely important aspect of risk management, and it is one that needs to be taken seriously.
A fire can be catastrophic for businesses — it can threaten the safety of employees and members of the public, destroy expensive equipment and ruin your brand’s reputation. And most workplaces will have a number of fire risks.
This training will provide information for small business owners and their staff. David Hamilton will explain the N. I. Fire Regulations, how they apply and what businesses need to do to comply, including a fire risk assessment. The second part of the training will cover the fire triangle, action in event of fire, the different fire extinguishers and testing and maintenance of the fire protection measures.
