Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service is holding two informal free events to help businesses understand their legal obligations -- while also helping to protect livelihoods from the devastation of fire.
The free events both take place on Monday, May 8th at the Service Headquarters in Winsford and will help to provide delegates with information and advice to protect themselves, their customers and most importantly their livelihoods.
Head of Protection Simon Gibbins said: "Cheshire Fire Authority is committed to helping companies to reduce the risks of fire which includes fires started by arson.
"It is estimated that up to 80% of businesses are seriously affected following a fire and many never recover. Simple measures can be taken which can significantly reduce the threat.
"It is hoped that anyone who has a responsibility for undertaking fire safety audits or Fire Risk Assessments within a company can attend and be better informed for the future."
The first seminar starts at 9.30am and runs until 12 noon and the second starts at 1.30pm until 4pm, and will offer a unique insight into fire safety requirements including:
Completing a fire risk assessment and capturing the correct data
Your responsibilities as a business under The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. Sprinkler
There's also a chance to network with other local businesses and to ask any questions relating to fire safety.
If you would like to attend one of the free events which takes at Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service Headquarters, Sadler Road, Winsford, CW7 2FQ, then please call 01606 868761 or email email@example.com
