Fire Doors as Part of a Fire Safety Compliant Business
Posted by Ahmarra on 24th January 2017
Compliance in fire safety is often underappreciated. Due to fire safety being to a good standard these days, fires don’t happen on a regular basis, but this can lead to a relaxed attitude and a lowering of fire safety standards. Those business owners who take this approach are likely to lose stock, property, value in their business, and in the worst circumstances the lives of their staff, highlighting how important fire safety compliance is at all times.
Sturdy, Regulation Fire Doors – Fire doors are important as they will block fire and deadly smoke from spreading throughout an entire building, allowing for escape through clear routes.
Clear Corridors – This will only work if the corridors are kept clear. This is necessary not only for an easy escape but also to allow quick access for fire fighters requiring entry to the building.
Signposted Routes – Fire exits should be clear for all to see, allowing for a clear visual path to follow in an emergency situation, where confusion can mean the difference between life and death.
Up-to-date Evacuation Plans – All plans for evacuation, including the routes and those responsible for counting heads at a designated meeting point, should be regularly checked.
