Fire Safety Surveys

A fire safety survey is a detailed and methodical examination of a company's premises, and the activities it carries out there, to determine ways in which the threat from the fire can be minimised. Until recently they would be performed by the Fire Brigade, who then issued fire safety certificates to show one had been conducted. However, this arrangement has since been changed, and it is now the responsibility of all businesses to show that the risks of fire have been minimised, and that appropriate escape plans are in place, for people on their premises.

Conducting a Fire Safety Survey

Any company undertaking a fire safety survey has to appoint a 'competent person' to carry it out. This could simply be the manager, an employee who's received the appropriate training, or someone belonging to a third-party that's been brought in to do so. If the organisation having its premises surveyed employs five or more people (or is licensed) than three things need to be recorded in case of inspection - its significant findings, the actions to be taken which result from the assessment, and details of anyone who would be especially at risk in the event of a fire. Even firms to who this doesn't apply could find it useful to record the results, as they provide a clear blueprint for changes that need to be made going forward.
