Managing fire risk - help!?!

We should all be managing fire risk all the time - but how do we know how to?

We all know that dealing with the risk of fire in the workplace (and at home) is an important health and safety issue. Because of the terrible events at Grenfell Tower and the updates of the repercussions we're seeing regularly on the news, we're finding that our clients are becoming increasingly uncomfortable with the process of managing the fire risk within their workplace.

If you have no experience of managing fire risk, how are you supposed to do so regularly within your business??

Let's start from the top. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states that those in control of a non-domestic premises (or part of a premises) must have a suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment completed by a competent person, and keep it up to date.

This means that you are responsible for organising the assessment and ensuring that it is suitable. To do this you must complete your own due diligence when appointing a Fire Risk Assessor. I'm not going to focus too much on this point in this post but I have to stress that for an Assessor to be competent, they must be able to demonstrate a combination of training, skills, experience and knowledge.

There is more information about Fire Risk Assessment on our website at www.randrsafetysystems.com/fire-safety/

 

Once you have appointed your Assessor and they have completed the assessment, you should be provided with a thorough document which outlines the findings. This should include the hazards found, those at risk, and discuss control measures and remedial actions.

Problem 1 - Once you have this document which is instructing you to make a serious of changes at your site and with your Assessor long gone, how are you supposed to implement them effectively with no experience? How do you know if you have reduced the residual risk of fire at all?

Problem 2 - Looking further forward we know that the assessment needs to be reviewed, but this can sometimes be up to three years in between! How are you supposed to manage the risk of fire in that time with no knowledge of how to do so?

 

Risk can never be fully eradicated, no matter what you put in place there'll always be some risk to deal with at the end of it - including fire risk. Our job in the health and safety industry is to help you to reduce and manage the residual risk as best as possible.

One of randr Safety Systems' solution to the above problems surrounding fire risk is a course we will begin delivering from October (2nd - 4th). We have called the course 'Fire Risk Assessor' and it's aims are simple:

Over three days we will provide you with a broad and thorough understanding of how to assess fire risk, decide upon and implement remedial actions and create an assessment review plan which you can carry out in between your full comprehensive assessment (carried out by a competent Fire Risk Assessor).

 

In short, the skills and knowledge gained on the course will place you in a much better position to ensure the safety of your people and your property as a regular part of your business operations and not just as a mandatory task every one, two or three years.

Foot size: Shoe lasts (which determine shoe sizes) vary by manufacturer and even from one shoe model to another.

You may need a half-size or even a full size smaller or larger than you think. If you're unsure, have your feet measured.shoes outlet
Try on shoes at the end of the day. Your feet normally swell a bit during the day's activities and will be at their largest then. This helps you avoid buying shoes that are too small.

Barefoot shoes are an exception: Heel and toes should “fit like a glove”without any extra space in the toes.Coach outlet sale
