HOSPICE HANDED HUGE £250K FINE FOR FIRE SAFETY BREACHES

A care home in Hastings has been handed a huge £250k fine for a host of fire safety offences. St Michael’s Hospice Hastings and Rother was prosecuted in relation to offences under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

The company was also ordered to pay costs.

The hospice pleaded guilty to two breaches in fire safety law which relate to the hospice’s overall failure to take general fire precautions to ensure the safety of its employees, residents and visitors. In sentencing Judge Henson described the failures in fire safety as obvious and avoidable.
