Fire Safety / Overview
Fire Safety Guides
We wrote these free fire safety guides ourselves especially for this site.
What is a Fire Risk Assessment?
This is designed as an outline guide, to give our clients background information to help them understand RiskBase’s methodology in producing assessments. It’s by no means a comprehensive but is useful as an overview. It should be read in conjunction with our Guide to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
The FSO generally applies to any workplace, whether a fixed or temporary building (such as a marquee or Portakabin®). Road-going vehicles requiring a license under VED (e.g. a car or van) are excluded.
Learn more about what the RFFSO 2005 enforces.
Help on Fire Extinguishers
Fire Extinguishers are there only to fight small fires; even then fires should be tackled only in their early stages and for as long as they do not block your exit.
Find out more about the different types of fire extinguishers and how to install them. Learn which ones should be used when.
