The Fire Risk Assessment we will provide is comprehensive and will include the following…
Identifying the hazards – Fires occur when there are three things present, sometimes referred to as the fire triangle, – a source
of ignition, fuel to feed the fire and oxygen. The closer these are in proximity to each other, the more likely the outbreak of fire is to occur. Potential sources of ignition include:
- Naked flames such as cookers, matches, pilot lights and welding equipment
- Hot surfaces including heaters, engines, boilers electrical equipment and lighting
- Heated work equipment such as grinders, flame cutters and welding
- Friction from drive belts and saw blades
- Sparks from electrical appliances, metal impact and cutting equipment
Identifying people at risk – We will assess who is at threat should fire break out and how the likely spread of fire would put them at risk. This would include numbers of workers and visitors to a premises including members of the public. Special precautions need to be made for people with disabilities. Warnings systems and fire exits including mobility access would all be checked and assessed.
Evaluation of the risks – Once we have completed our survey our findings are evaluated into a report which highlights areas where adequate plans and equipment are in place as well those areas that need addressing. This will be across 4 main areas:
- Reducing the possibilities of ignition
- Ensuring full warning procedures are in place
- Assisting people to evacuate the building
- Providing primary firefighting equipment
Implementing the findings – Future Fire Protection Ltd are proficient in all aspects of Fire protection and can implement any recommendations and plans that need to be put in place. This includes:
