Health and Safety in Shops

Shops receive a high footfall each day, so it is important that all shop owners or managers take the necessary steps to ensure health and safety in their premises. This is achieved by putting in place various electrical and fire safety precautions.

Fires in a retail space can not only put both employees and customers at risk, but it can also damage valuable merchandise and equipment. If a fire broke out, you could spend a large amount of both time and money on preparing to reopen the shop and replacing merchandise and equipment.

To avoid this altogether, you need to implement various fire safety precautions, and this is where we can assist at UK Safety Management Ltd. We offer a wide range of electrical and fire safety services across the UK, working within the retail sector. Our team can help you implement any health and safety precautions in your store, reducing the risk of fire.

What Can You Do to Improve Fire Safety?

Regardless of the shop you run, whether it is a supermarket, a clothing store, or even an electrical appliances shop, there are certain steps you can take to improve fire safety and prevent any fire from breaking out. Here at UK Safety Management Ltd, we are on hand to assist you with this, providing expert advice and services across the UK.

One of the first things you will need to do, which our team can carry out for you, is invest in a fire safety risk assessment. This is an assessment of your shop, where we will highlight any potential fire safety hazards and advise you on how to make these areas safer. By having a fire safety risk assessment carried out, you can become aware of any potential issues and take steps to reduce the risk.

There are some other ways in which you can improve fire safety, including:

  • Keeping Sources of Ignition and Flammable Substances Apart
  • Avoid Misuse of Equipment
  • Service the Electrical System

Ways to Prevent Fires in Shops

There are many ways to prevent fires in your shop, such as having a fire safety risk assessment carried out, so you are aware of any potential issues and can take steps to reduce the risk. However, having a risk assessment carried out isn’t the only step, as there are many ways to prevent a fire from breaking out.

For example, you will need to make sure that all electrical items and systems are properly serviced and maintained. This will involve having regular tests and inspections carried out to ensure the electrical equipment, such as tills and display lighting, are in good working order and safe to use.

Education is also a great way to prevent fires from breaking out in your shop. By educating your staff on fire safety, you can make sure that everyone is working safely within your shop, reducing the risks. It is also important to make sure that you have the proper fire detection systems, such as fire alarms, in place.

Common Causes of Fires in Shops and Supermarkets

There are many common causes of fires in shops and supermarkets, one of which is the electrical point of sale (EPOS) systems and electrical product displays. These electrical displays can often malfunction or become faulty, which can lead to a fire breaking out in your premises.

Other common causes of fires in shops and supermarkets are faulty equipment, dust build-up, and intentional damage. Faulty equipment and dust build-up are easy to prevent, as they require regular cleaning and electrical maintenance to be carried out. One of the biggest causes of fires in a shop is the misuse of equipment, and this can be rectified by simply educating your staff on fire safety and the proper use of equipment in the workplace.

In any shop, there will be fire hazards and, in shops where equipment is widely used, there may be higher fire hazard risk. However, there are ways to prevent fires from breaking out and reduce the overall risk to your shop.
