Thoughts are turning to the Christmas celebrations, who’s on leave, when and where the office do is, hope not to drink too much and say something inappropriate…
But what about the Christmas decorations, workplaces closed for the festive period, possibility of lone working?
Have the Christmas lights been tested? Is the artificial tree flammable? Who will switch everything off if the building is unattended? If people come in on their own in between Christmas and New Year, how will they know if there is a fire elsewhere in the building.
These are all fairly straightforward and you may say obvious, so have these issues been considered in your workplace? Are the all covered in your fire risk assessment. If not, it’s a simple job to update it, just needs thinking through.
