10 Fire Risk Assessment mistakes

checklist

The 10 most common mistakes when completing a Fire Risk Assessment - you could be making them right now!

  1. DONE FROM A DESKTOP 
    • There is no physical inspection of the building
  2. YES/ NO
    • In most instances answering like this will not be deemed suitable and sufficient
  3. ACTION PLAN
    • Must conclude in an action plan with ranking and suitable timescales
  4. HIGH RISK / TECHNICAL
    • If you are not trained and competent, the chances are you’ll be avoiding the main risks!
  5. GUIDANCE
    • Often overlooked is working to the right legislation, supporting documents and British Standards
  6. SHARE
    • Tell your employees and pass on significant findings of the assessment
  7. KEEP IT CURRENT
    • Is your report current; a true reflection of the premises
  8. PROCEDURES AND ARRANGEMENTS
    • It is essential that all occupants know what to do in the event of a fire and deploy the evacuation strategy effectively
  9. IGNORE
    • Have you acted on the findings or just filed the report away until next time
  10. COMPETENCE
    • The person completing the assessment can be prosecuted

Mark was a fantastic contributor and expert consultant for a programme ACC recently produced on Fire Safety for Care Homes. Mark was a great pleasure to work with, always extremely supportive, forthcoming and responsive to all of our queries, demonstrating great expertise. He was able to adapt quickly to the challenges of filming, taking on the additional role of presenter with great patience, skill and professionalism. We look forward to the opportunity of working on further programmes together in the future.
