New BIFM Fire Safety Guide

Industry & Regulatory News, Health, Safety & Environment
BIFM have opened 2016 with the launch of a newly updated Good Practice Guide focused on ‘Managing Fire Safety’.

BIFM have opened 2016 with the launch of a newly updated Good Practice Guide. The guide is centred on ‘Managing Fire Safety’ and aims to support facilities management professionals through the legislative process, whilst taking into account the separate legislation which applies in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Speaking on the new guide, Peter Brogan, Research and Information Manager at BIFM said “Fire safety management is of the utmost importance within an organisation as the majority of fires are preventable, when they do occur the potential losses can result in the organisation being unable to recover. This is why it’s so important to have an effective fire safety management system”.

The guide includes information on:

> Primary legislation and responsibilities for compliance
> Fire risk assessor and assessment
> Fire safety management policy, including a generic fire safety management policy
>  Fire safety training and fire marshals

The newly updated 50 page guide is available free to BIFM members here as part of their membership, but non-members can purchase the guide for £19.99 here.

There are a further 20 Good Practice Guides in the BIFM series, including a new Winter Maintenance edition, a newly updated  guide to Risk Management, alongside others including Business Continuity, Energy Audits, Inclusive Access, Disability & The Equality Act and Vacant Property Management.
