Employers are obliged to carry out regular fire drills in the UK. Fortunately, they don’t have to hold a drill if it’s raining! So – we guess – BAM Nuttall chose yesterday’s nice sunny morning for their drill in Knoll Road. (We hope they carried out an assessment of the risks to staff as they cross the road to the muster point!).
(Come to think of it, why do people tend to assume that, when they hear a fire alarm – and one was sounding loudly yesterday – it’s either a fault or a practice. Never the real thing!)
