Fire safety in small part time warehouse

Guest PaulBi

Recommended Posts

We are due a brigade visit in a few weeks to a small warehouse. We only use it occasionally probably on average 1/2 hours per day Mon - Fri. Could you advise if possible where in the regulations a bldg. such as this fits. We have marked fire exits and have annually maintained fire extinguishers but after that not a lot. I would welcome any comments.

Kind regards,

You are subject to The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and you are required to conduct a fire risk assessment, the guide for your premises will be the Factories and warehouses guide. The fire and rescue service could be visiting to conduct an audit of your fire safety arrangements or it could be to make them selves aware of the premises in case your premises are involved in fire. You should find out the reason for the visit and if it is an audit then you need to review your fire risk assessment to ensure it is relevant and up to date.
