fire risk assesments

5 steps

Step 1: Identify the fire hazard

For a fire to occur, three elements are required: ignition source, fuel and oxygen. Potential sources of ignition include natural flames (cookers, etc), hot surfaces (lighting, heaters), hot work (welding) friction (conveyor belts), sparks (grinding) and arson. Potential sources of fuel could include solids (textiles, paper, wood, etc), liquids (petrol, thinners, paints, etc) and gases (LPG). CENTA’S fire risk assessment advisor determines and lists the potential sources of ignition and fuels present at your premises.

Step 2: Identify people at risk

If there is a fire the greatest danger is the spread of flames, heat and smoke through the premises. The main risk to people is from smoke and products of combustion. Premises without adequate means of escape may trap people trying to escape a fire, or they may be overcome by heat and smoke before they can evacuate. Our expert will assess the likely speed and growth of a fire, the number of people in an area, fire warning arrangements, fire escape routes.

Step 3: Evaluate the risks

Taking into account measures which may already be in place, our assessor will decide if additional control measures are needed. These could include removing or reducing the risk of ignition, minimizing fuel loads, providing additional escape routes, installing a fire detection and alarm system, staff training and appropriate fire fighting equipment such as additional fire extinguishers, fire suppression or sprinkler systems. Our assessments include an action plan to monitor and review all fire safety arrangements.

Step 4: Recording findings

We document people at risk, the adequacy of existing measures and any additional action necessary to reduce the risk to an acceptable level, define compliance to national acts and standards and provide simple floor plans.

Step 5: Review and revise the risk assessment

Fire risk assessments are ongoing processes that need continuous monitoring and auditing. It is imperative to ensure new and existing control measures are maintained. At the same time changes to premises can bring a new set of hazards.

COMPLETE FIRE PROTECTION

As the temperature drops, it’s important to be mindful of fire safety practices. Keep anything that can burn at least one meter away from heaters. Have a one-meter “kid-free zone” around open fires and space heaters. Never use your oven to heat your home. Always use the right kind of fuel for fuel-burning space heaters.

KITCHEN SYSTEMS

Is your business hospitality-based? Do you run a busy restaurant? Or do you simply want to make your home a safer space? Our kitchen systems are designed to detect and extinguish fires in their incipient stage, providing you with peace of mind when it really matters!

Does your home have a Fire Extinguisher?

Every home should have at least one fire extinguisher that is easily accessible. Some homes should have at three or more, depending on the number of rooms and floors.
