Safety Management In Offices

Are you the person in charge of office safety? Whether you’re an employer or the designated office health and safety officer, you’re responsible for the safety and well-being of your employees/ colleagues, customers, and visitors, including any contractors hired to carry out work around the office. A considerable part of fire safety is the prevention of fires. As the person in charge, you are responsible for ensuring that adequate measures are in place to prevent fire outbreaks and protect individuals during outbreaks.

Fire Safety in Offices

Fire safety in the workplace is very important because thousands of workplace fires occur every year. The result is millions of pounds in damages, and often these fires result in serious injuries or fatalities. Some workplaces are more prone to fires than others, but every office should have a fire safety plan to protect the property, employees, and visitors.

It’s important to recognise the causes of fire when instigating fire prevention measures. There are various things you can do to ensure that your office is protected from fire outbreaks. This includes checking all electrical equipment and ensuring each device is up-to-date and in good working condition. Other steps involve having fire doors and extinguishers fitted and ensuring these are checked regularly.

Any flammable materials should be stored away from electrical equipment or other heat sources. All employees should be familiar with where fire exits are located, what’s covered under the fire safety plan, and where the meeting point is following an evacuation.

At UKSM, we take fire safety in offices seriously. Not only do we ensure that you have the right precautions in place, but our comprehensive fire risk assessments ensure your employees have the right safety training, too.

Why Staff Fire Safety Training Is Important

So, with the consequences associated with fire outbreaks, it’s important that you adhere to safety regulations, that a fire risk assessment is completed, and that you act quickly and decisively if a fire breaks out.

Having a dedicated office fire safety officer can go a long way to mitigating much of the risk. These staff members are trained, possessing the knowledge and awareness of how to act in the event of a fire. And they will ensure that all employees possess a basic level of fire safety training, which can prove invaluable by minimising injuries, saving lives, and potentially saving the company money.

A designated fire warden can assume charge in any given situation where a fire is involved. They can also schedule fire drills, teach others how to use fire extinguishers, and even carry out visual checks on fire doors to determine if they might need looking at by a professional.

Fire Risk Assessment for Offices

All businesses are legally required to perform a Fire Safety Assessment (FSA). Also known as fire risk assessments, FSAs involve lengthy checks designed to identify and evaluate the different risk factors present. Once identified, the correct course of action can be recommended, leading to the implementation of precautions designed to protect the building, employees, and visitors.

There are more than 22,000 fires in non-dwelling buildings every year in the UK. And most of these fires are because of human error or electrical fires. As such, the importance of having adequate safety regulations in place cannot be overstated.

Most fires in offices are categorised as ‘accidental’. By removing potential hazards, you’re taking care of factors that could trigger a fire in the future. By undergoing safety training and establishing strict guidelines communicated to all individuals, you greatly reduce the likelihood of serious injury or fatalities occurring because of a fire outbreak.
