Seminar for fire safety in sleeping accommodation
Published on 14 December 2009
The seminar aims to create awareness on the benefits of incorporating fire safety management protection measures.
Fires in commercial sleeping accommodation premises, especially those catering for the elderly, infirm or those people not familiar with the building present their own serious hazards. In particular evacuation of the building at night with limited staff may prove difficult especially for people that are short term residents.
There have been a number of serious fires in hotels, guest houses and houses of multiple occupation in many parts of the world resulting in multiple deaths. Even the UK with its strict fire regulations has not been immune. Yet there are simple cost effective ways to protect residents, staff and the business.
In 2007 there were approximately 1800 and 1200 fires in the UK in hotels (including boarding houses and hostels) and caravans respectively. Apart from the human tragedy that results from death and injuries, there are significant losses in respect of property damage. Major fires often result in businesses closing for good, as they never recover. Even where a home is not destroyed there can be significant commercial pressures on the owners and operators resulting from the need the need to provide alternative accommodation.
