According to HSE, it can take 30 minutes from the alarm being raised for a fire to spread, in which time much of the damage has already been done.
Bull Products, an independently owned manufacturer and importer of life-saving products, provides a range of fire protection equipment and its ambition is to ensure people are protected to the highest health and safety standards.
To protect employees, reliable fire alarms are the first critical step in alerting people of the danger and saving lives in the event of a fire. It’s important that buildings have fire alarms located in the correct places, and the right type of alarm depending on the building or site.
Additionally, fire extinguishers ensure emergency fire responders are able to swiftly select the type of extinguisher required to tackle a blaze. It’s also important to ensure fire extinguishers are placed in the correct areas such as corridors, stairways, and landings, so they are highly visible to those following an escape route.
Bradley Markham, director at Bull Products, said: “it’s crucial to ensure risk assessments, signage, and fire protection equipment all remain a top priority, no matter what type of building you’re in, or how large or small your business is.
“Last year, there was a 21% increase in fire fatalities, and although fires can spread very quickly, there are preventative measures that can be put in place to deal with a situation first-hand.”
