Fire safety is at the forefront of all of our minds at the moment, particularly following the horrific Grenfell Tower tragedy.  

Summer has now officially commenced and our series of safety features continues with an insight into fire safety when barbecuing.

It’s National Picnic Week (16-25 June 2017) and many of us will be heading outdoors to dine al fresco. But, before you go packing a bag full of food to feed your family and friends, consider the hazards of storing and transporting perishable food products over an extended period of time!


There’s no better way to enjoy the summer sun than eating outdoors. Dining in the garden is a favourite pastime during the warmer months, but we must remember to store and handle food safely to prevent unwanted ill health.

Following a fatality where a woman was scalded to death in 2012 at a hotel in Edinburgh, it has become essential to remind hotels and other establishments of the health & safety precautions that must be put in place regarding water temperatures.
