Businesses 'must review fire safety implementation'

12th April 2010 | Fire Signs

UK businesses should review their use of fire signs and other health and safety procedures in light of new rules announced last week, Post Online reports.

The Fire Safety Regulations 2010, which require employers to consider their workers' abilities with regard to fire-related safety, came into force in England on April 6th.

Kevin Molloy, UK leader of health and safety at Marsh's risk consulting practice, explained that employees must be able to carry out "all tasks assigned" in a fire emergency.

"Fire wardens should know which areas they are required to sweep if the alarm sounds, how to help evacuate individuals with mobility problems safely and competently and have the ability to give instructions under the stress of a fire incident," he told the news provider.

The new regulations were devised in order to incorporate fire safety in the general health and safety remit of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order in relation to employees' abilities.

Marsh is an insurance broker which provides advice and transactional capabilities to clients across the globe.
