Today we’re going to talk about fire risk assessments.
Good management of fire safety will ensure that fires are unlikely to occur.
If they do, they can be easily contained, controlled, and give everyone in the building the best chance to quickly escape unharmed.
Fire risk assessments are an organised and methodical look at your premises, what goes on there, and how likely it is that a fire will start and cause harm to people.
This is done by identifying the fire hazards by looking at sources of ignition, fuel and oxygen, identifying those at risk, and evaluating the risk of fire occurring and the risk to people.
If possible, remove any fire risks, and if that can’t be done, reduce the fire risks so far as is reasonably practicable.
Then, record your findings, prepare emergency plans, and provide training for your staff.
If you need any help with your fire risk assessments, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.
