How to…with Highfield: Fire Safety

Did you know that the majority of fires are preventable? But how do you ensure your premises is doing all it can to reduce the risk of fire?

1. Conduct a fire safety risk assessment, and regularly update it.

2. Use the findings to put in place proper fire safety measures that minimise the risk.

3. Keep ignition sources and flammable substances apart.

4. Practice good housekeeping. Tidy up. Avoid build ups of rubbish.

5. Install smoke alarms. Check alarms and detection systems regularly.

6. Ensure you have the correct fire-fighting equipment (i.e., the correct extinguishers for the correct type of fire).

7. Make sure escape routes and fire exists are kept clear.

8. Train your team – make sure they know what to do, where to go and who is responsible for what. If you’re looking for some additional help, Highfield has a range of materials and resources to support you:

2018 events calendar now live!

2018 events calendarWe know summer may have only just started, despite the best efforts of the British weather to suggest otherwise.  

And it’s still a massive 152 days until Christmas (sorry).  

But that’s not going to stop us from launching our events calendar for 2018!  

We’re already excited about the line up we’ve put together, with a whole host of events throughout the year covering first aid, fire safety, education and training and food safety.

And we’ve brought together some of the very best subject matter experts in their fields, who will be bringing you all the latest updates, guidance, information and training you need for your organisation. 

Nearly all our events come with CPD points and offer discounts to Highfield Centres, so there’s plenty of reason to get booking now. 

But don’t worry if you’re looking to have your training needs met a little bit sooner – there’s still 21 weeks of the year left (we’re counting) and numerous events between now and the end of the year, so plenty of opportunity to confirm your place.

If you want to take a sneak preview of what we’ve lined up for 2018, then just go to our events section and scroll through the dates.
