If you own, manage or occupy a building, your staff can help prevent property loss and, more importantly, avert injury if properly trained. Fire equipment, as your first line of defence, is virtually useless if your staff do not know how to use it. Would your staff know how to act to save valuable records, expensive equipment and prevent loss of life in the event of fire or emergency?
