    Presentation Title: Right Extinguisher, Right Risk – Managing fire safety to minimise costs and downtime

    Presentation Synopsis:

    While business owners and managers may partly delegate responsibility for their fire extinguisher specification and maintenance to a third party, can they be sure the provisions in place will be effective, compliant and not a risk factor themselves. Having inappropriate equipment in the wrong areas can lead to ineffective fire-fighting, contamination of the place of business, and even injury or death in extreme cases. We take a look at how the Responsible Person can avoid the costly implications of poorly-specified equipment, which range from fire damage and clean-up costs to reduced insurance settlements where risks have not been addressed properly.
