Summary and Info
This easy-to-read publication is virtually unique in the breadth with which it tackles the allied subjects of fire prevention and fire safety management. Previously published as "Fire Precautions: A Guide for Management", this book has been thoroughly revised and updated to incorporate explanations and guidance relating to the Regulatory Reform Fire Service Order (RRFSO) and related legislation in Scotland and Northern Ireland. For clarity of use, the book divides the subject of fire safety into a number of discrete components, for example, fire prevention; means of escape; emergency lighting; fire safety signs; and fire detection and alarm systems as well as chapters on human behavior and staff training. Intended for the non-specialist, this book provides an in-depth overview of all aspects of fire safety. It is a valuable reference to provide operational managers with a framework by which they can implement an effective fire safety strategy to meet both their own business needs, and those of the government's new requirements, in a planned and sustained fashion.
