Housing H&S Compliance UK Ltd are supporting Fire Door Safety Week
Fire doors are often the first line of defence in a fire. However, their correct specification, maintenance and management is still not fully understood by those who are responsible for them. Even after the Grenfell tragedy, fire doors remain a significant area of neglect, being often the first thing to be downgraded and mismanaged throughout their service life.
Fire Door Safety Week is committed to its objectives, which include:
– Raising awareness of the critical role of fire doors, drawing attention to specific issues such as poor installation and maintenance;
– Engaging and educating people, helping the whole building industry and every property owner to understand the correct specification, supply, installation, operation, inspection and maintenance of fire doors;
– Encouraging building owners and users to check the operation and condition of their fire doors and to report those that aren’t satisfactory
Pop over to the official website where you can download posters checklists and a range of items from their toolkit and find out more about the campaign – you can click here
