Fire Safety

Management.

In many estates the burden of managing fire safety is delegated to one individual as an additional role. This results in a considerable time and financial commitment to ensure this person has the necessary skills to undertake the role, maintenance of these skills and time to dedicate to managing fire safety across the company.
