A compliant Fire Risk Assessment will not only indicate appropriate Management procedures it will show due diligence. Don't be caught out, be prepared.

Care Homes & Health Care

Sheltered Housing, where care is provided and other similar Premises, which are permanently staffed and where the primary use are the provision of care rather than Healthcare Premises. This sector also includes; Healthcare Premises where the uses are the provision of Treatments, Health related services and care.

Some Premises offer a broad spectrum of services ranging from specific to Holistic care, to meeting personal and, or Medical needs.

In either Residential Care or Healthcare Premise a Fire Risk Assessment would be a requirement of the relevant Governing body regardless of Public or Private sector status whether this is institutions such as the National Health Service or organisations such as the Care Quality Commission

Relevant Guidance for Premises in this sector include; Department for Communities Local Government Guidance. Fire Safety Risk Assessment.

  • Residential Care Premises

Typical places for Residential Care include those where care is provided for: the elderly or infirm, Children and Young persons, people with special needs such as those with learning difficulties or with mental or physical disabilities and other dependent people including those with addictions.

BB 100 is a design guide, which identifies how the requirements for Life Safety, contained in the Building Regulations, can be met in the design of a new School or an Extension.

This is centred on a Risk-Based approach, and our Fire Risk Assessments can identify, qualify and satisfy this approach to cover all of the principles of Fire Safety Management and outline the Fire Protection measures, both existing and proposed which should be considered.

Entertainment, Restaurants & Bars

This Sector includes; Theatres, Cinemas, Concert Venues, Restaurants, Cafes, Pubs, Clubs, Exhibition, Conference, Community, Village, Church Halls, Churches and other place of Worship.

You know your Business but we know all of the relevant Guidance including Department for Communities.

Local Government Guidance. Fire Safety Risk Assessment.

  • Fire Safety in Small to Medium Places of Assembly
  • Fire Safety in Large Places of Assembly
  • Fire Safety in Places of Worship

We not only know how to satisfy the Guidance, we know how best to use it, for example; In any Licensed Premise, the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 takes precedence over the Licensing Authority and therefore any restrictions on the Premise, such as the capacity limit, would have to be in accordance with the findings of the Fire Risk Assessment.

A Fire Risk Assessment is a Legislative requirement that you have to meet but it should also meet your expectations and work for you.

What does a Fire Risk Assessment involve?

There are five key steps in a Fire Risk Assessment:
  1. Identify fire hazards - eg, how could a fire start? what could burn?
  2. Consider the people who may be a risk - eg, employees, visitors to the premises, and anyone who may be particularly vulnerable such as children, the elderly and disabled people.
  3. Evaluate and act - think about what you have found in steps 1 and 2 and remove and reduce any risks to protect people and premises.
  4. Record, plan and train - keep a record of what risks you identified and what actions you have taken to reduce or remove them. Make a clear plan of how to prevent fires and, should a fire start, you will keep people safe. Make sure your staff know what to do in the event of a fire and if necessary that they are trained for their roles.
  5. Review - regularly review your risk assessment to ensure it remains up to date and reflects and changes that may have occurred.

Fire Safety Risk Assessments



 
What is the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005?

The Government is committed to regulating only where necessary and in a way that is more suited to the needs of modern business. That is why the Order was made, under the Regulatory Reform Act 2001. It replaces most fire safety legislation with one simple order. It means that any person who has some level of control in premises must take reasonable steps to reduce the risk from fire and make sure people can safely escape if there is a fire.

You may need expert help. www.midland-risk.com can provide this assistance.

FIRE SAFETY RISK ASSESSMENT (Department for Communities and Local Government Publications)

YOU MUST

Appoint one or more competent persons, depending on the size and use of your premises, to carry out any of the preventive and protective measures required by the Order (you can nominate yourself for this purpose). A competent person is someone with enough training and experience or knowledge and other qualities to be able to implement these measures properly

Provide your employees with clear and relevant information on the risks to them identified by the fire risk assessment, about the measures you have taken to prevent fires, and how these measures will protect them if a fire breaks out

You must consult your employees (or their elected representatives) about nominating people to carry out particular roles in connection with fire safety and about proposals for improving the fire precautions

Before you employ a child, provide a parent with clear and relevant information on the risks to that child identified by the risk assessment, the measures you have put in place to prevent/protect them from fire and inform any other responsible person of any risks to that child arising from their undertaking

Inform non-employees, such as temporary or contract workers, of the relevant risks to them, and provide them with information about who are the nominated competent persons, and about the fire safety procedures for the premises

Co-operate and co-ordinate with other responsible persons who also have premises in the building, inform them of any significant risks you find and how you will seek to reduce/control those risks which might affect the safety of their employees

Provide the employer of any person from an outside organisation who is working in your premises (e.g. an agency providing temporary staff with clear and relevant information on the risks to those employees and the preventive and protective measures taken. You must also provide those employees with appropriate instructions and relevant information about the risks to them

If you are not the employer but have any control of premises which contain more than one workplace, you are also responsible for ensuring that the requirements of the Order are complied with in those parts over which you have control

Consider the presence of any dangerous substances and the risk this presents to relevant persons from fire.

Establish a suitable means of contacting the emergency services and provide them with any relevant information about dangerous substances

Provide appropriate information, instruction and training to your employees, during their normal working hours, about fire precautions in your workplace, when they start working for you, and from time to time throughout the period they work for you

Ensure that the premises and any equipment provided in connection with fire fighting, fire detection and warning, or emergency routes and exits are covered by a suitable system of maintenance and are maintained by a competent person in an efficient state, in efficient working order and in good repair

Employees must co-operate with you to ensure the workplace is safe from fire and its effects, and must not do anything that will place themselves or other people at risk.
