homeworking-office chair fire risk


Recommended Posts

Hi, my company has sent out over 200 office chairs from our offices to staff working at home, these chairs are not new and subsequently not been specified to meet the Furniture and furnishings [fire safety] regulations,  we are reopening our offices slowly but I am concerned that the chairs only meet BS7176 standards and we are putting our staff at risk not to mention breaking the law. would appreciate any advice please.

Furniture covered by domestic or contract regulation, will both resist the ignition of a fire, with the difference being a case for argument and as the furniture is being loaned, not sold, also with the occupier accepting it, I do not see any legal problems, but that would need to be taken up by a lawyer.
