Health and Safety is a priority for business and it can be particularly difficult for businesses that operate across multiple sites to keep track when there is only a single staff member dedicated to Health and Safety. Fire Door Monitor from Digitalquill can automatically alert you when fire regulations are being breached and allow you to take action – as well as provide an audit trail to prove how seriously you take fire safety.
Stop Staff Propping Fire Doors Open
If fire doors are left propped open, it can cause a significant health and safety risk. They should only be used for access and left closed at all other times in order to act as an effective fire and smoke barrier. It is common for staff – particularly on hot days – to prop the doors open which increases risk, and could result in a fail if a fire inspection is undertaken by the fire brigade. Fire Door Monitor is an innovative solution to allow your nominated fire safety representative to discharge their legal responsibilities.
When Fire door monitor is installed in your building, magnetic catches are installed onto each door – allowing it to be opened only for a maximum specified time before sending an SMS and email alert to the nominated fire officer to visit the door and close it. Full reporting tools are available, and it is possible to see which doors are opened and for how long. This means that even if the nominated fire officer is not on site, some of the duties under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order: 2005 or any other national standards can be fulfilled.
