The Textile Industry Advisory Committee has launched a booklet setting out the fire risks to people working in textile and clothing factories. Textiles products burn easily and may be poorly stored, posing risks to factory workers, premises and plant.

Fire precautions in the clothing and textile industries gives advice on how to control fire risk and outlines the steps needed to comply with legal requirements and minimise risks of fire. Under new fire regulation employers have the responsibility for assessing the means of escape from their premises.

The new guidance looks at this issue and the features of a building that may make risk assessment difficult.

Price per copy is £8.50 and copies can be ordered online at: or Tel 01787 881165.
