A new report has revealed that more than two thirds of Hampshire businesses have failed a fire safety audit in the past 12 months. A study compiled by Safety Management (UK) showed 972 of 1,390 premises audited by fire chiefs in the year to March were found to be unsatisfactory.

Managing Director Brian Gregory said: “Often business owners and managers feel that by having fire extinguishers in place and have a fire detection system in their building they are covered. But critically, unless the assessment is completed by a competent person, there is no guarantee that the fire detection is the right system for the building.

“Small businesses are feeling the pressure of the recession and they are looking to save money where they can, but putting fire safety to the bottom of their priorities is a false economy.”

The results of this survey prove how important it is to have an all-round fire safety plan in place with an up to date risk assessment, training and competent people carrying out your fire equipment servicing.
