Risk Assessments

Fire Risk Assessment Legislation

HAVE YOU CARRIED OUT YOUR STAFF TRAINING AND FIRE RISK ASSESSMENT YET? ARE YOU AWARE OF THE CHANGES IN LAW REGARDING FIRE SAFETY THAT CAME IN TO PRACTICE FROM OCTOBER 1ST 2006?

The order which was approved by parliament in June 2006will affect ALL NON-DOMESTIC BUILDINGS IN ENGLAND & WALES.

The new law will affect anyone who is responsible for business premises, an employer, self- employed with a business premises a charity or voluntary organisation or a contractor with a degree of control over any premises.

The main requirement is that employers and building owners should carry out a fire risk assessment record these findings and act on the findings.

Enforcing authorities (usually fire authorities) will be inspecting premises to make sure you comply.

New fire safety legislation

Fire risk assessment is no longer an option under this new legislation

  • you must carry out a fire risk assessment of your entire work place
  • you must provide adequate provisions for people with disability
  • you must provide and maintain adequate fire precautions

YOU MUST RECORD YOUR ENTIRE FIRE RISK ASSESSMENT:

  • Prevention of fire
  • Escape from fire
  • Communication of fire
  • Confinement of fire
  • Suppression of fire

YOU MUST RECORD YOUR FIRE LOG BOOK

YOU MUST RECORD YOUR STAFF TRAINING RECORDS YOUR FIRE EQUIPMENT & RECORDS YOU MUST RECORD YOUR EMERGENCY PLAN

YOU MUST RECORD YOUR ACTION PLAN

Procedures :
We cannot carry out a fire risk assessment on premises which are still undergoing construction work/material changes. The assessment will be based on the premises as seen, therefore if the premises are incomplete, the fire risk assessment will not be valid once work has finished and a further fire risk assessment will need to be carried out and this would be at additional cost. If you are unsure if your premises are ready, please contact us to discuss, as there is a cancellation fee if we cannot complete the assessment.

Fire Extinguishers

Fire Extinguisher Servicing

Fire extinguishers require stringent maintenance to ensure they will work when needed, or are more importantly, safe. Fire extinguishers are pressurised vessels that can explode when corroded or damaged, and have been know to cause serious injury and even death.

There are 2 types of maintenance procedures:

  • Basic inspection by the user;
  • and Maintenance by competent person.
  1. British Standard 5306-3:2000 covers the maintenance of portable fire extinguishers, and recommends that “regular visual inspections of all portable fire extinguishers be carried out by the user or user’s representative. The frequency of inspections by the user should be not less than monthly and, when circumstances require, inspections should be carried out more frequently”.

    Inspections should include checks that each extinguisher:

    • Is located in the designated place;
    • Is unobstructed, visible and its operating instructions face outwards; Has operating instructions which are clean and legible;
    • Is not obviously damaged;
    • Has a reading in the operable range or position of any pressure gauge or indicator fitted;
    • Has seals and tamper indicators which are not broken or missing.
  2. Maintenance should be carried out by a competent person (usually a specialist contractor) 12 months after installation of a new extinguisher, and at 12 monthly intervals thereafter. The following chart shows the basic types & frequency of maintenance:
Extinguisher type Basic service Extended service Overhaul & recharge
Water & foam Annually 5 yearly
Powder Annually 5 yearly
CO2 Annually 5 yearly 10 yearly
