What Is Passive Fire Protection?
Passive fire protection products are built into the fabric of a building, providing protection to the occupants that often goes unnoticed. This protection could be installed under floors, above false ceilings and in riser cupboards. We install these stopping products to limit the spread of fire, by containing it to its area of origin. By compartmentalising a fire it gives people in other parts of the building time to escape, and limits damage to the building
Fire Compartmentation Surveys
How a building is managed and maintained is crucial to maintaining the buildings fire strategy throughout its lifetime.
Day to day wear and tear, maintenance works and general remedial works can interfere, damage or disturb the passive fire protection installed as part of the buildings construction.
Not maintaining the passive fire protection within the building will impact on the integrity of the building and its ability to perform as it should do within a fire.
Fire Risk Assessments
Our Fire Risk Assessments are based on the regulations not what we want to sell! The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (FSO) came into effect in October 2006 and replaced over 70 pieces of fire safety law. The FSO applies to all non-domestic premises in England and Wales, including the common parts of blocks of flats and houses in multiple occupations (HMOs)
What does a Fire Risk Assessment involve?
There are five key steps in a Fire Risk Assessment:
1. Identify fire hazards – eg, how could a fire start? what could burn?
2. Consider the people who may be a risk – eg, employees, visitors to the premises, and anyone who may be particularly vulnerable such as children, the elderly and disabled people.
3. Evaluate and act – think about what you have found in steps 1 and 2 and remove and reduce any risks to protect people and premises.
4. Record, plan & train – keep a record of what risks you identified and what actions you have taken to reduce or remove them. Make a clear plan of how to prevent fires and, should a fire start, you will keep people safe. Make sure your staff know what to do in the event of a fire and if necessary that they are trained for their roles.
5. Review – regularly review your risk assessment to ensure it remains up to date and reflects and changes that may have occurred.
UK Risk can help you through this and our ex fire service assessors will find creative and cost effective solutions for issues that may arise during your assessment.
