The Fire Risk Assessment is just the starting point of Fire Safety Management at your premises; all other compliance needs flow from this. Before getting into the risk assessment you should be aware of some of the other requirements of The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005:-
You need to have a Fire Emergency Plan for dealing with any fire situation. The purpose of a Fire Emergency Plan is to ensure that the people in your premises know what to do if there is a fire and that the premises can be safely evacuated.
Once the fire emergency plan has been developed and training given, you will need to evaluate its effectiveness. The best way to do this is to perform a fire drill. This should be carried out at least six-monthly or as determined by your fire risk assessment. If you have a high staff turnover, you may need to carry them out more often.
Employee training: The actions of employees if there is a fire are likely to be crucial to their safety and that of other people in the premises. All employees should receive basic fire safety induction training and attend refresher sessions at pre-determined intervals.
Fire Warden training: Fire Wardens control the evacuation of employees and others out of the building and to the fire evacuation assembly point. They may also be part of a fire-fighting team and will need extra training in fighting SMALL fires.
Building Managers and facilities Managers also need to receive training on their legal duties and how to identify risks and failings that may contribute to a fire occurring or be a hazard in the event of an evacuation.
Top of the pyramid is THE Responsible Person. Responsible Persons need training so they know what their legal responsibilities are. A question will normally be asked by the fire authority in a possible prosecution scenario: “What are your duties as set out in Articles 8 to 22 of The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005?” Do You Know?
