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
