Fire safety training is crucial for those working in a kitchen environment as this can reduce the risk of a fire starting, a leading organisation asserts.

This must cover as a minimum the high risk areas such as cleaning flues and ductwork, fighting cooking fires, isolating extractor fans and the safe handling of fats and oils.

It is important to keep adequate records of who has received training and is competent at cleaning as this can help prevent firms from being prosecuted.

Failure to provide an adequate cleaning regime can jeopardise insurance claims in cases of a fire and many insurance policies stipulate this as a condition.

Earlier this month, it was revealed one in three business were breaking the law by failing to conduct a fire risk assessment.
