ASFP - Fire and your legal liability

  • Comment

2008 witnessed the highest UK peace time fire losses of all time; rising by more than 16% to a record £1.3bn. Now, if you are involved, at any level, in the provision of a fire protection package, you share the liability for its usefulness and its operation.  This is no longer simply a duty of care, it is a legal obligation.  In the event of a fire and as a result, a death, a court will want to know every detail.  No ifs, no buts.  Be aware!  The time to consider this obligation is before the event, not after it!
