Credit Crunch Tips

The credit crunch shows no sign of easing any time soon, so with this in mind we have put together four top tips to help save unnecessary outlay during these frugal times:

Keep your fire alarm serviced

Keep the servicing on your fire alarm up-to-date. A faulty alarm could cost lives, not to mention a huge repair bill. This small investment can mean big savings. More information on fire alarms

Ensure your first-aiders complete their refresher training

Make sure your first-aiders do not miss their refresher training. Otherwise they will have to attend the full four day course again instead of the two day refresher (a price difference of £650 per course), resulting in more training expense and an extra two days out of the business.

Check your fire doors open fully

Keep checking you external fire doors open fully. If they warp and stick it will be more expensive to replace them in the long run, whereas minor faults can be easily and cheaply corrected.

Ensure escape routes are clear

Ensure your external escape routes do not get overgrown this spring. Not only will this render them unusable, but the weeds and plants could bring up your concrete, creating more repair bills.
