Every month we’re going to bring you articles that will make us all more aware of health and safety procedures here at Euro Garages. We’ll concentrate on specific topics every month, to refresh your memory and make sure we’re all doing what we need to do to keep ourselves, our colleagues and our customers safe.
Our April Focus is Fire Safety!
The law states that every staff member must attend one fire drill per year as a minimum. However, on induction, new starters must also be shown what to do in the event of the fire.
How many of your staff and colleagues have attended a fire drill in the last twelve months?
Your manager should plan your fire drill, ensuring all staff attend.
If you have more than one brand in the building, then you MUST do the fire drill together. You all have roles to play in evacuating the building. Working together is essential to make sure that it happens smoothly.
Have you completed Fire Extinguisher Training?
Do you know the types of fire extinguishers in your store?
What type of extinguisher would you use on an electrical fire?
