The types of equipment required depends on the business premises and the activities carried out. A professional body should install, test and maintain all equipment. Members of staff should know how to use them if necessary because this could make a huge difference in an emergency situation.
You should carry out regular checks on your firefighting equipment. Make sure that…
All fire alarm systems are working
All fire escapes can be opened easily
Faults in systems and/or equipment should be recorded
The emergency lighting is working
Automatic fire doors close correctly
All escape routes are clear, and the floor is in a good state
A responsible person (someone with enough training and experience/knowledge to be able to implement the measures properly) must carry out a Fire Risk Assessment. They must implement and maintain a management plan which should include regular checks like the above because this will help to minimise risks.
