Fire risk management extends beyond having the right fire-fighting equipment in the workplace. It can also include basic drills, first aid, and any other aspect that can mitigate the effects of a fire. Most, if not all, are included in a fire risk assessment program like the one from Help and Safety at Work.
As fire risk management evolves, a thorough fire safety risk assessment becomes increasingly important. There’s currently no set rule as to how often you should carry one, but it should be updated every time you make changes to the workplace. This assessment only takes a look at renovations but also new hires, system upgrades, policy revisions, and even past fires.
