The Fire Protection Association (FPA) has launched its ‘Know Your Building’ campaign in a bid help building owners and managers better understand the threat posed by fire and help to bolster business resilience. The core campaign objectives are:
For sprinkler systems to be a regulatory requirement for commercial buildings such as carehomes, schools, hospitals and healthcare premises.
For all businesses to have a fire strategy as part of a robust business continuity plan.
For third party certification to be a regulatory requirement for all fire safety services and products. This includes fire risk assessors, sprinkler installers and maintainers, fire door installers and maintainers and fire alarm installers and maintainers.
The FPA have also provided a blind spot calculator to help building owners and managers identify gaps in their fire safety awareness.
