FIRE RISK ASSESSMENT
THE FIRE SAFETY MEASURES, WHICH THE RESPONSIBLE PERSON IS ACCOUNTABLE FOR, INCLUDES:
Measures to reduce the risk of fire occurring and the spread of fire
Detection and warning in the case of fire
Provision and protection of means of escape
Maintenance of facilities, equipment and devices necessary to safeguard human safety
Consideration of dangerous substances
Provision of information to employees
Action to be taken in case of fire, including staff training
These measures also extend to suitable provisions, in protecting fire and rescue service personnel, should they attend to fight a fire in the building and measures to identify the effects, of fire on the local environment.
The risk assessment should therefore be undertaken by a ‘competent person’ who has had sufficient training and experience or knowledge and other qualities to enable them to properly implement the measures referred to.
On completion of the assessment you will be given a bound document which will cover all aspects of fire safety in your premises together with the overall risk levels and an action plan which will recommend ways of overcoming any shortfalls within suitable timescales.
The risk assessment and resulting document will enable you to comply with the Order and ensure you remain within the law.
