Why Do I Need a Fire Strategy Report?

Fire Safety is an important issue in the workplace and as such, there are various measures that you can take to protect your premises, employees and clients. These include fire escape routes, fire safety signs and keeping buckets of sand or fire extinguishers on hand. UK Fire Consulting can help you comply with fire regulations by carrying out a comprehensive fire strategy report. A fire strategy report is more in-depth than a fire risk assessment and is designed to ensure that your building is as safe as possible against the threat of a fire, with the aim of minimising the damage that can be caused.

When Do I Need a Fire Strategy?

A fire strategy document is normally developed in the early stages of a new build project. However, it can also be carried out retrospectively. When this happens, a building expert will analyse the structure and identify the key fire safety Fire Strategy Reports London features such as the flammability of materials used in construction, compartmentation strategies, means of escape routes and access for emergency services.

The reason that a fire safety strategy is so important is that it is the only way for the responsible person to determine whether the premises are suitable against a fire. It is also the only way to ensure that the occupants can safely evacuate the building and are not at risk of injury or death.

If you are the responsible person for a business, a fire strategy report is an integral part of your obligations under the Regulatory Reform Order (Fire Safety) 2005. In fact, without one, you could face prosecution under the law.

A fire safety strategy is also recommended for any building that cannot be catered for by a simple fire risk assessment and escape planning. This can include complex buildings such as shopping centres and large office blocks.

When you choose UK Fire Consulting to carry out a fire strategy for your commercial property, we will look at all the potential hazards in your premises including smoke detector heads, alarm call points, fire safety signage and emergency lighting. We will also examine the different fire extinguishers available and come up with a plan for evacuating the building in the event of a fire. We will then present our findings in a detailed report which will be checked and approved by your local fire service.

As experts in drafting fire strategy reports, we can tailor our analysis to your specific building. This will mean that we can provide you with a report that meets all your requirements whilst still providing you with value for money. We can even go as far as putting together a 3D model of your building to give you an accurate picture of the potential risks. In this way, we can create a bespoke fire strategy for your building which will maximise the safety of its occupants and minimise the potential loss of property and life.
