A reminder to check safety systems and equipment

During the COVID-19 crisis, UKWA is urging members to remember the importance of weekly and monthly checks on safety systems and equipment, regardless of whether the building is occupied at this time. This includes sprinkler system checks, weekly pump checks, fire alarm checks, general security checks and other routine maintenance to ensure logistics facilities continue to provide a safe working environment during the crisis, and when staff return to normal working patterns.  With furloughed staff within your own and suppliers’ businesses, don’t hesitate to contact UKWA if you need support with testing and maintenance.
