A fire risk assessment is an organised and methodical look at your premises, the activities carried on there and the likelihood that a fire
could start and cause harm to those in and around the premises.
aims of the fire risk assessment are:
• To identify the fire hazards.
• To reduce the risk of those hazards causing harm to as
low as reasonably practicable.
• To decide what physical fire precautions and management
arrangements are necessary to ensure the safety of people in
your premises if a fire does start.
If your organisation employs five or more people,
or your premises are licensed or an alterations notice requiring it is in force, then the significant findings of the fire risk assessment, the actions to be taken as a result of
the assessment and details of anyone especially at risk must be recorded.
You will probably find it helpful to keep a record of the significant findings of your fire
risk assessment even if you are not required to do so.
The picture above shows a partially obstructed exit door,
but more importantly it is an inward opening door fitted with a panic push bar - how would it
open in an emergency? If you missed this you possibly need professional help with your fire risk assessment.
safety and fire risk assessment can be complex and may require a high level of competency to achieve compliance. Where this
is the case it may be necessary to engage specialist advice.
