Book Description

This guide provides practical information on assessing the risk of fire and enhancing the security of retail premises. It is aimed at everyone who is responsible for the care and safety of customers, employees and visitors, and for the property and assets of the premises. It identifies the important issues, and encourages an approach in which good fire safety and security practice become familiar and normal to employees. All retail premises have to comply with fire and health and safety legislation and, with responsibility for premises becoming more and more onerous, doing nothing is no longer an option. From the Foreword by Patrick Heaney, Group Fire Safety Manager, J Sainsbury plc: "It is vitally important that retailers do everything reasonably practicable to protect their colleagues, customers and premises from the many fire and security risks faced by their business on a daily basis."
