This video has been completely re-filmed and updated following the latest best practice guidelines including NASHICS good practice guidance published in 2016. The additional guidance was produced by the National Association for Safety and Health in Care Services (NASHiCS) and the Chief Fire Officers’ Association (CFOA) to accompany the Communities and Local Government (CLG) guide, entitled Fire Safety Risk Assessment – Residential Care Premises. The CLG guide was published so operators knew how to comply with the Fire Safety Order (FSO) 2005. NASHiCS continue to work with CFOA on guidance for fire safety.
