Safety at work isn’t always a guarantee. Some jobs, like firefighting or deep-sea diving, are more dangerous than others. For most of us though, work takes place in a building – mostly retail stores or offices. And completely shocking consequences can arise in the most mundane of jobs if fire safety building regulations aren’t adhered to.

Business owners are obliged to provide a safe, regulated environment.

But even a perfectly designed and constructed workplace isn’t enough to ensure fire safety. That comes down to vigilance, regular checks and keeping up with best practices.
