ARE YOU COMPLYING WITH CURRENT FIRE LEGISLATION

11 September 2013 


Fires need three things to start, a source of ignition (heat), a source of fuel (something that burns) and oxygen:

Sources of ignition include heaters, lighting, naked flames, electrical equipment, smoker's materials (Cigarettes, matches etc), and anything else that can get very hot or cause sparks.

Sources of fuel include wood, paper, plastic, rubber or foam, loose packaging materials, waste rubbish and furniture.

Employers (and or building owners or occupiers) must carry out a fire safety risk assessment and keep it up to date. This shares the same approach as health and safety risk assessments and can be carried out either as part of an overall risk assessment or as a separate exercise.

If you are looking for a professional company to look after your fire protection needs or for further information on our range of fire protection services, call our sales team on 0845 4752358 or Email  fm@the-activegroup.co.uk for further details.

SLIPS, TRIPS AND FALLS

26 November 2012

With winter nearly upon us and the bad weather nearly here statistics show slipping and tripping to be the single most common cause of injuries in UK workplaces (source hse.gov.uk)

Protect your business, your employees and your customers from Slips, Trips and Falls due to wet floors.

It is important to have good housekeeping practices in place such as quickly cleaning up any spillages or contamination that does get onto the floor and having adequate lighting for people to see where they are walking.

The revolutionary laundered fl oor mat is now a permanent feature in most business
environments. Whether it’s a bespoke logo mat for your entrance or foyer, or a standard coloured laundered mat for your workshop we can provide a managed
service that works for you; allowing you to concentrate on your core business.

Our service
