‘Work safe’ campaign helps shed light on evacuation planning

11 July 2016

Eaton has launched a ‘work safe’ campaign that examines the issues and procedures surrounding effective evacuation planning for commercial buildings.

Taking proactive steps to ensure safe evacuations is one of the most important responsibilities of commercial property owners and managers. They are obliged to take multiple risk scenarios into account and respond by introducing appropriate planning, training and technologies. However, Eaton contends that too many businesses take safety for granted and is seeking to raise awareness.

As part of the campaign, Eaton has launched five whitepapers, designed to guide the owners and managers of buildings through the legal, moral and commercial imperatives to maximise the safety of occupants in an emergency. They also offer advice on protecting property, assets and business continuity. 

The whitepapers cover the following subjects:

• Trends in commercial property and the future of safe evacuation 
• Protecting your people – regulations and legal obligations 
• The impact of fire and other emergencies 
• Minimising risks 
• Business continuity and reputation

There are several reasons why a building needs to have a firm evacuation plan in place; increasing urbanisation, proliferation of warehouse buildings, an ageing population, reputation sensitivity and contemporary threats such as terrorism and extreme weather are just a few of the reasons why evacuation must be prioritised. 

Eaton offers a wide range of fully-compliant equipment to enhance safety in buildings, including fire detection and notification systems, public address and voice alarms, communication devices, emergency lighting, illuminated exit signs and security systems. In addition, the business provides guidance, advice and continuing professional development (CPD) training to support contractors and customers on an ongoing basis.
