Keeping up safety standards during the festive season
With Christmas around the corner, it is time for the annual trip to the store room to dust off the decorations and lights which will brighten up your workplace . Before the big switch on, think about your normal safety practices and check that the lights comply with a relevant British or European safety standard, are in good condition and show no signs of wear and tear.
A safe means of putting up the decorations is also essential and staff may need to be reminded that the use of chairs as a means of working at height is no more acceptable in December than at any other time of the year!
Maintain your fire and safety standards through the Christmas period and enjoy the festivities
