Having an asbestos survey carried out is an effective way to help you manage asbestos in your premises. A survey will provide vital information, such as the location, condition and amount of asbestos that has been identified.
In this Briefing Note we consider the maintenance of fire safety arrangements during the current pandemic, as it is of critical importance to make sure that workplace fire safety risks continue to be adequately controlled.
Irrespective of the risks arising from COVID 19, any applicable fire safety legislation remains in force, and the duties arising remain unchanged. However, fire safety legislation is not prescriptive, so providing appropriate supplementary or alternative fire safety arrangements are implemented, and that the overall objectives of the legislative requirements are met, then the Responsible Person will generally have discharged their duties.
