Fire safety management - continuity is crucial to maintain compliance

Suzanne Radford 1

Effective fire safety management is a continuous process. Some of your buildings may currently be vacant or only partially occupied, but it's still vital to make sure the appropriate fire safety measures are in place and your fire safety equipment is functioning correctly in order to maintain compliance and keep your buildings and their occupants safe.

The fire risk assessment - a critical driver to highlight risks

As the fire risk assessment is the critical driver to highlight any gaps in compliance this is often the best place to start; particularly if there have been any changes to the use or occupancy profile of your building. The risk assessment will identify possible fire safety hazards and recommend any remedial actions required to protect your building and its occupants, particularly those considered vulnerable.

The risk assessment will also determine whether your fire protection measures are sufficient and appropriate for the premises. This takes into consideration structural and passive fire protection, alarm and warning systems, emergency lighting, sprinklers and extinguishers, signage and means of escape.
