Our Approach And Solution
Hollybank Rest Home benefits from a number of services supplied by Benfield Fire Safety. This includes an annual fire risk assessment, alarm maintenance, emergency lighting tests, and providing on call advice whenever the care home needs it.
Benfield Fire Safety also provide regular fire safety training for all staff at Hollybank Rest Home and fire warden training for key staff. Both include practical exercises using digital LED equipment to simulate a fire indoors or a controlled fire outdoors.
Evacuation drills are also a key element of the contract with this care home, giving staff practical experience of using evacuation aids every six months.
As a 24/7 operation, the rest home is always open. So Benfield Fire Safety provide day time and night time training to work around staff shifts.
Nothing is too much trouble
“Our staff are always ready to do what is necessary in an emergency, but thanks to Benfield Fire Safety’s training they feel much more confident about the right actions to take if a fire occurred.
“Jason explains the training in a way that everyone can understand, but it isn’t generic. He makes a point of getting to know you and tailoring the training to your business. He’s also very flexible and works around day and night shifts to make sure the whole team can take part. When a new maintenance manager started, Jason made a point of coming in to meet him.
“Nothing is too much trouble; Jason is always on hand to help us.”
