In a news update from the BAFE® Fire Safety Register, it has been confirmed that fire safety and fire security personnel are identified as key workers.
Here at TVF Ltd and our sister brands, we are ensuring that we keep our staff and customers safe, with all necessary COVID-19 measures and precautions in place.
Fire safety personnel will continue to be Key Workers
MP James Brokenshire, Minister of State for Security at the Home Office, informed Ian Moore, CEO of the Fire Industry Association, that:
“security and fire safety personnel can play a vital role at this time of national challenge. People working in these sectors who are essential to national infrastructure are “Key Workers” for the purposes of the Government’s guidance on COVID-19.”
Fire safety legislation has not changed, as it still continues to be enforced by law. The BAFE® Fire Safety Register is continuing to inform all BAFE Registered Companies about safety and COVID-19 regulations.
It is of paramount importance that any changes businesses have had to make due to COVID-19, are integrated with the fire safety measures put in place. It is key that fire risk assessments are reviewed, and changes are implemented.
With all the changes COVID-19 has brought to daily life, all businesses and buildings need to have an updated fire risk assessment that encompasses all COVID-19 measures.
