The Contents

  • Introduction and course overview.
  • Identifying the fire hazards :
  • Potential sources of ignition could include:
  • Naked flames: smokers materials, matches, pilot lights, gas/oil heaters, gas welding, cookers etc.
  • Hot surfaces: heaters, engines, boilers, machinery, lighting, electrical equipment etc.
  • Hot work: welding, grinding, flame cutting.
  • Friction: drive belts, worn bearings etc.
  • Sparks: static electricity, metal impact, grinding, electrical contacts/switches etc.
  • Arson, for example, deliberate ignition.
  • Potential sources of fuel: anything that burns is a potential fuel, examples include:
  • Solids: textiles, wood, paper, card, plastics, rubber, PU foam, furniture, fixtures/fittings, packaging, waste materials etc.
  • Liquids: solvents (petrol, white spirit, methylated spirits, paraffin, thinners etc), paints, varnish, adhesives etc.
  • Gases: LPG, acetylene.
  • Identifying people at risk :
  • The likely speed of growth and spread of any fire, and associated heat and smoke. 
  • The number of people in the area including employees, contractors, visitors, members of the public . 
  • Arrangements for giving warning to people if a fire occurs.. 
  • How they will make their escape.
  • Evaluating the risks :
  • Further control measures may:
  • Act to reduce the possibility of ignition.
  • Minimise the potential fuel load in the premises.
  • Assist people to escape from the effects of a fire, should it occur.
  • They may fall into a number of different categories, such as: 
  • Fire safety management systems.
  • Means of escape.
  • Staff training.
  • Fire warning systems.
  • Means of fighting fire.
  • If the risk is the possibility of a fast growing fire, potential control measures could include one or any combination of the following:
  • Changing the process to use a slower burning fuel.
  • Removing or reducing possible ignition sources.
  • Moving the hazard to an area that affects the minimum number of people.
  • Providing an additional exit/protected route to speed up the escape of the occupants.
  • Providing a fire detection and alarm system to warn people of the fire in its early stages.
  • Training staff to reduce the possibility of a fire occurring.
  • Providing appropriate fire fighting equipment / fixed installation.
  • Recording findings :
  • Recording the significant findings of your risk assessment, together with details of any people that are at particular risk, where:
  • A licence under an enactment is in force.
  • An Alterations Notice under the Fire Safety Order requires it.
  • You are an employer and have five or more employees.
  • More importantly, the record must show whether the existing control measures are adequate and, if not, what further action is required to reduce the risk to an acceptable level.
  • Reviewing and revising the risk assessment :
  • A new work process may introduce additional fuels or ignition sources. 
  • Changes to furniture layout or internal partitions could affect the ability for occupants to see a fire and escape in time. 
  • Increasing the number of people may mean that a fire exit is now too small to cope with their escape within a safe period. 
  • Occupying another floor of the building may mean that an electrical fire warning system is now necessary.
