Hull Fire Risk Assessments Warning

If you are a business owner in Hull fire risk assessments are something that should be reviewed every year.  The importance of this has being emphasised by Rob Grayson, Technical Fire Safety Manager for the Humberside Fire and Rescue Service, who said: “Factory and warehouse owners must take responsibility for ensuring the safety of employees and visitors to their premises; I urge them to review their fire risk assessment to see how effectively the risks are being controlled.

“Factory and warehouse owners must keep their fire risk assessment up to date, we are increasing the number of visits in the Humberside area to ensure the risk assessments are suitable and sufficient. If any factory or warehouse owners are in breach of the legislation we can serve enforcement notices and in very serious cases prohibit the use of the workplace and consider prosecution.”
