The British Woodworking Federations’ Fire Door Safety Week aims to raise the awareness of the critical role that fire doors play in saving lives and protecting property in the unfortunate event of a fire.
The theme for this year’s campaign, which runs from 25-29 September, is ‘Recognise it, Report it’ and aims to help people spot problems with faulty doors so they can be reported, then repaired or replaced.
21% said the reason they wouldn’t report in the future is because they don’t think anything would get done.
Almost half (49%) didn’t feel it’s their responsibility to report a faulty fire door.
This year’s campaign marks the 10th year of Fire Door Safety Week and aims to empower all to spot and report issues: Recognise it, Report it.
It wasn’t just issues with spotting and reporting problems that were prevalent, there was also a lack of understanding over the purpose of fire doors and how they function.
More people believed that a fire door aids in stopping the spread of fire (46%) rather than the spread of smoke (32%). Only a fully functioning fire door will protect property and life from fire and smoke, with smoke inhalation being the main cause of fire-related deaths.
