By installing a temporary fire alarm system, you’ll be providing your workers with the earliest possible warning of a fire threat. This will give them ample time to exit the construction site safely and call the emergency services in to handle the fire. This strategy will help to stop the fire spreading further throughout the construction site, but most importantly will radically reduce the risk of threat of injury or death from fire or smoke inhalation.
The Health Safety Executive publication, Fire Safety on Construction Sites (HSG 168) states that “The aim of any fire warning system is to ensure that people on site are alerted to make their escape before a fire becomes life-threatening. The essential requirements of the fire warning signal are that it is distinctive, clearly audible above any other noise and is recognised by all the people on site.”
Sicuro’s wireless temporary fire alarm system meets these regulations and adheres to British Standards BS 5839-1 and BS EN54.
