Page 11
STEP 3.1 EVALUATE, REMOVE, REDUCE & PROTECT FROM RISK (Evaluate the risk of a fire occurring)
The chances of a fire starting will be low if your premises have few ignition sources and combustibles are kept away from them.
Look critically at your premises and try to identify any accidents waiting to happen by acts or omissions and look for situations that
may present an opportunity for an arsonist*

Page 13
STEP 3.3 EVALUATE, REMOVE, REDUCE & PROTECT FROM RISK (Remove or reduce the hazards)
Having identified the fire hazards in Step 1 you now need to remove those hazards if reasonably practicable to do so. If the hazards
cannot be removed reasonable steps need to be taken to reduce them, this is an essential part of fire risk assessment and as a
priority this must take place before any other actions.
RISK
NO. Remove or Reduce (sources of ignition, fuel & oxygen) CHECK

Operate a safe smoking policy in designated smoking areas and

Page 15
STEP 3.4.1 EVALUATE, REMOVE, REDUCE & PROTECT FROM RISK (Fire detection and warning system)
Having evaluated the risk of fire occurring and the risk to people you now need to reduce any remaining fire risk to people to as low
as reasonably practicable, by ensuring that adequate fire precautions are in place to warn people in the event of a fire and allow
them to safely escape. The higher the risk of fire and risk to life, the higher the standards of fire protection will need to be.
RISK
NO. Protect from risk CHECK
SCORE COMMENT

Can the existing means of detection ensure a fire is discovered


61. quickly enough for the alarm to be raised in time for all occupants
to escape to a place of total safety?
Are the detectors of the right type and in the appropriate

locations?
Can the means of warning be clearly heard and understood by
63. everyone throughout the building when initiated from a single
point?
Are there provisions for people or locations where the alarm

cannot be heard?
Does the fire-detection and warning system have a back-up
65.
power supply?

Page 16
STEP 3.4.2 EVALUATE, REMOVE, REDUCE & PROTECT FROM RISK (Fire fighting equipment and facilities)
Fire-fighting equipment can reduce the risk of a small fire (i.e. a fire in a waste paper bin), developing into a large one. The safe use
of an appropriate fire extinguisher to control a fire in its early stages can also significantly reduce the risk to other people in the
premises by allowing people to assist others who are at risk.

Do you have the necessary procedures in place to maintain any
facilities that have been provided for the safety of people in the
74.
building (or for the use of fire-fighters, such as access for fire
engines and fire-fighting lifts?)

Page 17
STEP 3.4.3 EVALUATE, REMOVE, REDUCE & PROTECT FROM RISK (Escape routes)
It is essential that escape routes, and the means provided to ensure they are used safely, are managed and maintained to ensure
that they remain usable and available at all times when the premises are occupied. Corridors and stairways that form part of escape
routes should be kept clear and hazard free at all times.
For evacuation of persons with mobility impairment, the means of escape provided must be suitable for the evacuation of everyone
likely to be in the premises. This may require additional planning and allocation of staff roles with appropriate training

NO. Evaluate CHECK

electrical cables pass through them?
Can all the occupants escape to a place of total safety in a
77.
reasonable time?
Are the existing escape routes adequate for the numbers and
78. type of people that may need to use them, i.e. staff, members of
the public, young children and disabled people?
Are the exits in the right place and do the escape routes lead as

If there is a fire, could all available exits be affected or will at least

Can all final exit doors be opened easily and immediately if there

premises?

Page 18
Are the people who work in the building aware of the importance
of maintaining the safety of the escape routes, i.e. by ensuring
85.
that fire doors are not wedged open and that combustible
materials are not stored within escape routes?
86. Are there any particular or unusual issues to consider?

STEP 3.4.4 EVALUATE, REMOVE, REDUCE & PROTECT FROM RISK (Emergency escape lighting)
People in your premises must be able to find their way to a place of total safety if there is a fire by using escape routes that have
enough lighting. Where any escape routes are internal and without windows, or the premises are used during periods of darkness
then some form of backup to the normal escape route lighting (emergency escape lighting) is likely to be required.
RISK
NO. Evaluate CHECK
SCORE COMMENT

87. Are your premises used during periods of darkness?

STEP 3.4.5 EVALUATE, REMOVE, REDUCE & PROTECT FROM RISK (Signs and notices)
Signs must be used, where necessary, to help people identify escape routes, find fire-fighting equipment and emergency fire
telephones. These signs are required under the Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations and must comply with the
provisions of those Regulations.
RISK
NO. Evaluate CHECK
SCORE COMMENT

Where necessary are escape routes and exits, the locations of

they continue to be correct, legible and understood?
Are you maintaining signs that you have provided for the

storage of hazardous substances?

STEP 3.4.6 EVALUATE, REMOVE, REDUCE & PROTECT FROM RISK (Installation, testing and maintenance)
You must ensure regular checks, periodic servicing and maintenance are carried out whatever the size of your premises and any
defects are put right as quickly as possible.
RISK
