A guide to Fire Risk Assessments

It’s estimated that there are 15,000 fires in businesses across the UK every year. Behind those figures lies financial ruin, lost lives and a whole load of grief, so we take what we do seriously.

Prevention starts by taking responsibility

Fire prevention, employee safety and the security of every business starts with a Fire Risk Assessment. If you are an employer, owner, landlord, occupier or someone in control (like a facilities manager) of a non-domestic premises, a Fire Risk Assessment is a legal requirement. P&R Safety Testing will work alongside your staff to ensure you comply with regulations and are implementing relevant processes and procedures.

When does a Fire Risk Assessment need to be reviewed?

Your Fire Risk Assessment should be reviewed annually or after any significant changes are made within your business that could compromise your fire safety, like:

  • Alterations to the building’s layout or extensions
  • Changes to staff numbers or occupancy rates
  • Activities and operational changes
  • Legislation updates.

When changes are made, a simple action plan will be created and actions followed up. Importantly, the findings of the review must be documented.

We identify the hazards and the people at risk

A Fire Risk Assessment initially reviews the fire risks and those it might affect. In order to spread, fire needs a source of ignition and a source of fuel. So, identifying both of these elements and keeping them separate from each other is vital to reduce any risk.

Sources of ignition include:

  • Naked flames or sparks
  • Electrical equipment
  • Chemical processes
  • Frictional heat
  • Electrostatic discharges.

Sources of Fuel:

  • Oxygen
  • Combustible materials (wood, paper etc.)
  • Chemicals and solvents.

Employee safety is reviewed by assessing everyone individually, and looking at their physical strength and fitness, place of work, job function and location. For example, does their workstation or environment impair a safe and swift evacuation? Is mobility or physical ability going to present a challenge in certain situations? Careful consideration should be given to how the risk of fire may affect employees, contract workers, visitors and members of the public.

Evaluating fire measures and implementing a plan

With the right planning, all aspects of fire safety are identified and actions taken. Procedures will cover specific answers to three key areas:

  1. Fire detection and warning
  2. Means of escape
  3. Provision of fire-fighting equipment

Processes and responsibilities are built into the plan, including training and staff communications around fire safety duties and guidance. Ongoing management, a review of the processes and keeping up-to-date records is a never-ending process, and has to be done with due diligence and an understanding of the implications of non-compliance.
