A Comprehensive Guide to Fire Safety

A Comprehensive Guide to Fire Safety was previously published as Fire Precautions: A guide for management , this book has been thoroughly revised and updated to incorporate explanations and guidance relating to the Regulatory Reform Fire Service Order (RRFSO) and related legislation in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

For clarity of use, A Comprehensive Guide to Fire Safety divides the subject of fire safety into a number of discrete components, for example, fire prevention; means of escape; emergency lighting; fire safety signs; and fire detection and alarm systems as well as chapters on human behaviour and staff training.

Intended for the non-specialist, A Comprehensive Guide to Fire Safety provides an in-depth overview of all aspects of fire safety. It is a valuable reference to provide operational managers with a framework by which they can implement an effective fire safety strategy to meet both their own business needs, and those of the government’s new requirements, in a planned and sustained fashion.
