First steps to reviewing your fire strategy
Here are some steps you can take to review your fire safety strategy in light of the new Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022:
1. Familiarise yourself with the new regulations
It is important to understand the specific requirements and changes introduced by the new regulations. You can do this by reading the regulations or consulting with Ligtas. Register for In conversation with Tom Stallard - Head of Fire Services, held on January 18 at 12 noon. Tom will discuss the changes to the new Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022 and the implications for your business.
2. Assess your current fire safety measures
Take an inventory of the fire safety measures that are currently in place in your building. This might include fire alarms, sprinkler systems, fire doors, and emergency lighting, among others. 2. Read 5 Key Steps In The Safety Case Process
3. Compare your current measures to the new regulations
Compare your current fire safety measures to the requirements outlined in the new regulations. Make a list of any areas where you are not in compliance and identify any gaps in your current approach to fire safety.
4. Develop a plan to address any non-compliances or gaps
Once you have identified any non-compliances or gaps in your fire safety strategy, develop a plan to address them. This may involve making changes to your current fire safety measures, implementing new measures, or providing additional training to building occupants. Keep the ten steps above in mind as you do this…
5. Review and update your emergency evacuation plan
Make sure that your emergency evacuation plan is up to date and in compliance with the new regulations. This may involve reviewing and updating your emergency procedures, as well as conducting drills to ensure that all building occupants are familiar with the plan.
6. Review and update any fire safety documentation
Make sure that any fire safety documentation, such as risk assessments and fire safety certificates, is up to date and in compliance with the new regulations.
As we say at Ligtas, prevention is better than cure. Therefore, it is always better to take steps to prevent a problem from occurring than trying to fix it once it has already happened, which can be costly and put your business at risk (see the ten reasons).
Our goal is not to tick boxes to make your life easier. Instead, we want to support you with the right steps which can be taken now to prevent problems from occurring. So we will say it again – by working with Ligtas, we can often help you to save time, money, and resources and avoid the negative consequences that can result from any problems not addressed.
