Review when no longer valid or significant changes No need to review in light of trivial changes Fires or near misses should initiate review Ensure precautions are working effectively
Shouting “Fire” may be sufficient in small workplaces Electrical fire warning system with manual call points is likely to be required Automatic fire detection may also be necessary Alarm should be loud enough for everyone to hear it
Should normally be an alternative means of escape Each escape route should be independent of any other Should lead to a place of safety Should be wide enough for number of occupants Should not normally reduce in width Should be available for use and clear at all times
Consider what people are doing when alarm sounds: Operating machinery that will have to be switched off Sleeping etc. Disabled may need help to evacuate Corridors should be 1m wide Stairways should be of sufficient width Should be sufficiently lit, and have emergency lighting where necessary
Portable fire fighting equipment: Water (red) Foam (cream) Powder (blue) Carbon Dioxide (black) Halon (green)
