Fire Safety Checklist

Why Every Building Should Have A Fire Safety Plan

In the UK alone, there are approximately 153,000 recorded fires every year. No matter how big or small the building is, fires are indiscriminate, so fire safety should be a top priority both inside and outside of the workplace. Implementing a reliable fire safety plan in your building can save lives. These precautions should also be reviewed on a regular basis. Whether at home or at work, everyone in the building needs to be aware of what to do in the event of a fire. Being informed about fire safety is important because a small flame can quickly grow into a large fire in less than 30 seconds. Therefore, it is crucial. 

Fire Safety Defined

Fire safety is a set of practices that aims to lessen the harm and casualties brought on by fires. These comprise risk assessments to assist in locating and minimising fire risk areas as well as developing an emergency and evacuation plan in the event that a fire does start.

What Are Examples Of Fire Safety Measures?

Although you would think that everyone would be familiar with the fundamentals of fire safety, many people are not. Fire safety measures includes:

  • Having sprinkler systems installed
  • Marked fire exits
  • Fire extinguishers in accessible locations
  • Smoke detectors
  • First aid boxes
  • Clear evacuate route 
  • Accessible emergency assembly point

What Makes An Inadequate Fire Safety Plan?

Unfortunately, it’s quite typical in the workplace to have a subpar fire safety plan. For instance, when it comes to escaping a fire, inexperience poses a significant risk. Everyone’s safety depends on conducting fire drills, being well-prepared, and making sure your staff is capable of managing a crowd. These are merely a few methods of how to stay protected and organised.

Additionally, difficult escape routes also present a significant risk. Think about a fire breaking out and boxes, desks, and unnecessary objects blocking your escape route. There might be fatalities as a result of this. It is important to make sure that everyone in the building is aware of and can easily access your escape route.

I have used RAD for a couple of projects and found them to be good to deal with. They did a pair of 3 storey open plan houses and seven three and four story town houses. The sprinklers were to improve fire safety, allow more flexible space and comply with building regulations. The sprinklers were far more cost effective than the mist type systems and look very discrete when installed.

My requirement was a bit unusual for RAD in that I wanted a mist system in one room of a rented house. I had no drawings or technical back up. RAD were very helpful and repositioned the unit after the initial installation. Luckily with the help of Sonny, the engineer it all worked out very well.

As somebody who feels that it should be a necessity for all properties to have fire sprinkler systems, I am a big fan of this company. I have used them numerous times to service my home system and they are very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend their service.
