The fire and security management franchise recently explained the six questions that all business owners must ask themselves about their premises’ fire safety.

At Jackson Fire and Security, franchisees recruit and manage a team of engineers. You don’t need previous experience in security or management to be suitable for the role, though you will need a strong sales background, a willingness to learn, and the drive to keep growing your business. Recently, the security franchise shared six important questions that business owners should be asking about the fire safety of their building:

  • When was the last fire risk assessment?
  • How long since the fire equipment was serviced?
  • Do staff know how to use fire extinguishers?
  • Are escape routes clear?
  • Is all wiring/electrical equipment functioning correctly?
  • Are there any hazards outside?

In the words of Jackson Fire, “If fire safety has slipped down the agenda, a good starting place is to carry out a risk assessment to review whether anything has changed and to refresh your action plan. If your business has five or more people you will need to keep a written record of your assessment.”

Maintaining an awareness of all the wiring and equipment at work is also very important, as “problems with wiring and electrical equipment malfunctions can cause fires”. That means being aware of “equipment that’s becoming excessively warm” and “electric leads that might look damaged in some way”, and also giving appliances “sufficient space so cooling air can circulate around them”.

In terms of outside hazards, business owners should be looking to remove anything that could be used to commit arson. According to the franchise, you should “be very careful about leaving anything outside close to your building, particularly rubbish and bins, as they can provide an easy target for arsonists looking for something to set alight”.

If you’d like to join this network of security and fire experts as a franchisee, you can invest with Jackson Fire and Security for a minimum initial amount of £39,500, with a total investment cost of £69,500. After two years, your expected revenue as a franchisee is £200,000. Find out more via the security franchise’s profile page, linked above.
