Changing elements of fire safety management
6th July 2021
Following the outcome of the Hackitt report and the number of reactive processes that have resulted from it, we have seen a dramatic change in the way we manage fire risk. New legislation has been introduced with more on the way, but do you know what it all means for you?
It's been a busy year for change in other ways too, as the pandemic made us look at how we worked, with large numbers of our employees at home. Now, as restrictions start to ease, we're slowly returning to the workplace.
Much has been said of the 'new normal' and what that means for the workplace, what has changed and will stay changed, or revert to back to how it was. But the one thing that hasn't changed is fire safety and the duty of care that goes with it. Are you really as prepared for the return as you thought you were?
- Are your systems tested?
- Have your fire risk assessments been reviewed?
- Are your processes fit for purpose?
There are many things you will need to consider before you can return to normal, whatever that is!
Looking at these points, you are invited to join us on our next webinar that combines the perspectives of enforcer and practitioner, to consider the changes we have and are seeing, and so what they could mean for the changing elements of fire safety management.
So, we hope you can join us on Tuesday 6th July 2021, 09:30-10:30, to learn something new, review your current position or for some thought leadership.
