FIRE SAFETY & DISASTER RECOVERY DON’T FORGET FIRE SAFETY


Here, Jamie Allam, CEO Amthal Fire & Security, looks at the support available for FMs as they continue to adapt to the changing pandemic environment, and not lose sight of the key aspects of risk assessment to protect their premises, staff and visitors.


Businesses across the UK are working diligently to implement measures that help minimise exposure to and spread of COVID-19. While much emphasis has understandably been placed on associated issues and concerns, it’s critical that levels of fire and life safety continue to be maintained.


There is no doubt, COVID-19 has been a particularly difficult and challenging period for businesses, whatever their size or sector.


Many businesses have been focusing on keeping their customers and guests safe and rightly introducing COVID-19 risk assessments to ensure work is protected. But in doing so, there may have been other aspects of their management processes that have not had the same time and attention paid to them as they would normally.


The National Fire Chiefs Council is calling for businesses to be mindful of everyday workplace fire risks, not least with the legal and moral responsibility to ensure premises and occupants are safe.

In their core position, FMs are charged with ensuring the built environment is functional and safe and supports the organisations they serve.


During the pandemic, that role has risen to prominence as the world has recognised the essential role facilities play as the backdrop and host to the daily interactions of occupants and visitors.


Facilities managers today are learning to work outside of their normal bubble, actively engaging with leadership, legal, human resources, IT, communications and marketing, and others to create a cohesive response on behalf of our organisations. The part that FMs play in helping their organisations effectively manage a pandemic strategy is critical. But underlying this, the core role cannot be diluted. They must continue to determinate exactly what is needed to keep all of the people, as well as the stock of materials, safe.


This includes regular fire risk assessments, especially to ensure changes made in line with Government guidelines
