- Fire safety plans for construction
The building industry’s performance has improved significantly in recent generations, but the rates of death, serious injury and poor health among construction site workers remains unacceptably high. When building activities are not sufficiently controlled, there is a real threat to members of the public – and also to any buildings located in close proximity to the construction site. For example, it’s easy for a large fire to spread off-site. Please get in touch with Acufire today if you need help in putting together comprehensive fire safety plans for your organisation.
- Evacuation Plans
Evacuation plans, often referred to as fire emergency evacuation plans (FEEP) usually take the form of a written document detailing the action that must be taken by all staff in the event of fire and the arrangements for contacting the fire service.
- Evacuation procedures
These refer to a set of actions that building occupants are instructed to follow in the event of a fire or other life-threatening situation. Typically they involve activating the fire alarm, calling the emergency services immediately and providing relevant information – and ensuring that all personnel have left the building. Often the guidelines will recommend that you do not use a lift or elevator and that you make use of fire extinguishers only if you have received adequate training.
