Simon Brentnall (Head of Health & Safety) explains the latest assured guidance available for BFFF members.
‘In order to maintain temperature control the majority of premises in our industry are laden with composite panels. BFFF has now received assurance for guidance from its new primary authority provider Essex Fire and Rescue for managing hot works and fire safety induction training for Staff and Contractors.

These activities are often close to composite panels therefore it is essential that our member companies have a robust management system is in place for managing hot works and that both staff and contractors receive a comprehensive induction on fire safety’
