It is an unfortunate fact that accidents can – and do – happen. Whilst you can do everything you can, as an employer, to prevent this, it’s just as important to have processes in place for when these accidents do occur. Fire warden training is a great example of this as it ensures there is a designated, trained person who can react quickly, confidently and safely, should a fire break out.
