Chief Fire Officers Association Business Safety WeekThis week is business safety week (5th – 11th September 2016). The key objective of the week is to highlight the support businesses can receive from their local fire and rescue services.

Digitalquill support Business Safety Week and work with a number of businesses to help them avoid being served with enforcement notices, and to encourage them to make fire safety a part of their everyday work.

What Happens in Business Fire Safety Week?

The campaign week publicises and supports the ongoing work of business safety practitioners working in the Fire and Rescue Service.

They ask businesses to:

  • Work with them to make sure their premises are safe
  • Update risk assessments and safety procedures
  • Help to reduce the number of false alarms
  • Help to protect themselves from arson
  • Share fire safety information with staff

Your local fire and rescue service can help you protect your business from the risks of fire: find their contact details at www.cfoa.org.uk/frs.

Health and Safety Software Solutions

Digitalquill can help businesses manage their health and safety through innovative software solutions. Our products are designed with the busy manager in mind, and only alert you when an exception occurs. This means that supervisors can spend more time working and less time filling in forms.

Fire Door Monitor

Fire Door monitor is our software solution to the perennial problem of staff leaving fire doors propped open. Misuse of fire doors is not just a serious health and safety risk in the event of fire – it is also putting you in potential breach of the law.

Fire Door Monitor uses a combination of hardware and software to alert a manager when a fire door is open for longer than a defined period. This means that normal use for access does not trigger an alert, and you do not need your health and safety officer to constantly patrol the area. This is particularly useful when your business spreads across multiple sites but there is only one person ultimately accountable for fire safety.

Inspection Monitor

Inspection Monitor is Digitalquill’s solution to automating any kind of inspection regime. It is fully configurable and can use RFID technology to prove that a physical location has been visited.

One of our clients had a problem with youths setting fire to boxes outside his warehouse. Inspection Monitor proved to be the perfect tool a checking process to be implemented, put into practice and reported on. Management were instantly aware if there was a problem, or if a check was missed – and the system is otherwise silent and unobtrusive.
