Is your business compliant? Have you thought about fire extinguisher installation in Scotland? In Scotland, the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 governs alongside the associated Fire Safety Scotland Regulations 2006. Non-compliance can be penalised so ensuring you are following the law when it comes to fire safety is vital.
In the UK, fire safety in the workplace is governed by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. There is a requirement in the UK for portable fire extinguishers to be serviced and maintained to the current standard, by a “Competent Person”. The order was made to replace most fire safety legislation resulting in one simple order. It means that if you have any level of control in a premise, you must take reasonable steps to reduce the risk from fire. You must also make sure people can safely escape if there is a fire so knowing the regulations is crucial.
Essential equipment for a premise includes Trolleys and Stands, Safety Signs, Blankets and Alarms. For any business, fire extinguisher installation in Scotland is imperative. If you are a responsible person, such as an employer, owner, landlord, occupier you have a duty of care to visitors and staff.
