Fire Door Safety Week was introduced in 2013 by the British Woodworking Federation (BWF), the BWF Fire Door Alliance (an evolution of the BWF CERTIFIRE Scheme) and the Fire Door Inspection Scheme (FDIS).
In businesses across the United Kingdom, from shopping centres and hotels to care homes and student accommodation, there is a legal duty to comply with The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
In thousands of shops, schools, care homes, apartments, factories and offices across the UK, fire doors are in daily operation.
Fire doors are one of the most significant fire safety features you’ll see in a building, acting as a physical barrier between fire and smoke, and those in the area.
With multiple people coming and going at all times of the day and night, fire safety in the hospitality sector is vitally important.
The HFM Expo took place on the 25th and 26th of September at the ExCeL London with a focus on hotels and restaurants. Our main intention was to converse with managers in order to share our knowledge.
If you would like to get more information about Fire Risk Assessments, we will be exhibiting at the Hotel Facilities Management Expo 2018 on the 25th and 26th of September.
