When maintaining fire safety, care home facilities face several sector-specific challenges. Not only are there often additional fire risks posed by the use of specialised medical equipment, but in many of these settings, the vulnerability of those on site also needs to be heavily considered.
Emergency evacuation procedures can become complicated where there are residents with mobility issues, the elderly, or residents receiving specialist care for conditions such as dementia.

- Regulations & Best practice
In relation to fire safety, care homes are required to meet the legislation set out in the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order (2005)
It is essential to conduct regular fire safety training for staff, ensuring that new members receive immediate instruction. Scheduled fire drills and evacuation practices should be implemented to ensure that all staff members are prepared to respond confidently and calmly in the event of a fire.
Ventro’s goal is to make the procurement process as easy as possible for all sectors in which we operate. Frameworks allows care homes to comply with procurement regulations whilst making the process seamless and quick to enable the project to be carried out swiftly and ensure the critical, lifesaving works are completed.

Some of the most important accreditations for the care home sector are BM Trada for fire doors which demonstrates that we are competent to fit and maintain fire doors. As well as this the BAFE Fire Safety Register which demonstrates that we are competent to design, fit and install fire safety alarm systems.
