    Bid to reduce fire-related work accidents

    By David Brown on August 9, 2013

    Leading fire officers have issued a pledge aimed at reducing fire-related work accidents.

    The Government has welcomed the Chief Fire Officers Association’s (CFOA’s) pledge to work with businesses to improve how fire safety regulations are enforced.

    Fires at the workplace represent a proportion of work accident compensation claims.

    Business Minister Michael Fallon warned that fire safety regulations must be “robustly” and “clearly” enforced to ensure safety without harming productivity or business growth.

    Mr Fallon said: “Thanks to the government’s willingness to listen to business, the involvement of the CFOA and their welcome and prompt response, firms can expect to be able to protect their staff, customers and premises without being held back by confusing or inconsistent advice.”

    The minister added he will be watching the progress of these reforms with interest.

    Fire chiefs offer safety commitment

    The CFOA has committed to the following with which it hopes to improve how fire safety regulations are enforced and minimise the number of accidents at work:

    • heading a Business Engagement Forum, giving industry the means to shape regulatory practices, raise concerns and generate innovative solutions
    • forming a professional, accredited, framework of competence for fire safety officers
    • producing tailored support and guidance for the “supported living” sector
    • providing clearer and more consistent backing and direction to businesses
    • promoting the use and acceptance of recognised professional certification and accreditation for commercial fire risk assessors
    • building on the good practice already created by various fire and rescue authorities (FRAs) in giving support to small business in particular
    • encouraging all FRAs to engage with Local Enterprise Partnerships to back greater communication with companies
