Fire Safety at Work and Other Places

Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service provides fire safety advice and guidance regarding fire safety legislation for fire safety at work and other places.


Keep it simple - Keep it safe

 The message for businesses is ‘Keep it SIMPLE and Safe’. 



Fact and Figures.pngDFRS wants to support businesses to manage their fire risks and hazards. Not only does well-managed fire safety have the potential to save lives but it also can safeguard businesses against financial and commercial loss. Fire can cause major disruption for businesses – there is a far greater chance of recovery if risks have been identified, and appropriate arrangements have been put in place to prevent fires starting, or to mitigate their impact.

DFRS encourages all businesses to ensure their staff are fully aware of potential fire risks and hazards, and know what to do in an emergency. Remember, fire safety doesn’t have to be complicated; keep it SIMPLE and keep your business safe.
