Photographs The responsible person must take general fire precautions as will ensure so far as is reasonably practicable the safety of any employees and also in relation to relevant persons who are not in their employ take such general fire precautions as may reasonably be required in the circumstances of the case to ensure that the premises are safe. Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 Article 9 requires that every responsible person must make a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risks to which relevant persons are exposed for the purpose of identifying the general fire precautions needed to take to comply with the requirements and prohibitions imposed by or under the order. The responsible person (or other person who has to any extent control of the property) must ensure that the duties imposed by the relevant articles of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 are complied with where the matters relate to items within their control. The prescribed information is the significant findings of the assessment including the measures which have or will be taken by the responsible person pursuant to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and any group of persons identified by the assessment as being especially at risk. This includes identification of all current significant fire hazards to which relevant persons and others in the area may be exposed. The Risk Assessment will prioritise the level of risk associated with the property incorporating existing controlling measures to mitigate any risk The Assessment will also advise upon additional control measures that may me implemented to manage the risk in accordance with Article 10 of the Order. a.

Fire Risk Assessment Action Schedule This report has been prepared as the written record of the Fire Risk Assessment carried out to the communal areas of this building on behalf of the Landlord, Bluezone Ltd, in accordance with the requirements of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. The objectives of the Fire Risk Assessment are to ensure that a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risks to which relevant persons are exposed for the purpose of identifying the general fire precautions he needs to take to comply with the requirements and prohibitions of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. f. Measures for Fire Detection and Warning g. Measures to assist Means of escape A Bluezone Ltd Fire Risk Assessment is not a one off document and is part of a strategic Fire Safety Strategy and Policy implemented to identify, manage and monitor the risks to Bluezone Ltd properties on a regular basis. The Fire Risk Assessment will be reviewed under Article 9 (3) of the Order and in direct accordance with Bluezone Ltd review policy and National guidance documentation; this includes but is not restricted to:- (a) there is reason to suspect that the Fire Risk Assessment is no longer valid; (b) there has been a significant change to which it relates including when the premises, special, technical or organisational measures undergo significant change, extension or conversion. (c) Identification of risk following an actual or near miss incident. The report is to provide and assessment of the risk to life from a fire within the building and to make recommendations to ensure compliance with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005; it does not address the risk to the property or business continuity from fire.
  3. 3. Information contained within the report is based on observations at the time of inspection and details provided by on site personnel. To identify the significant fire hazards within the premises checklists are used which consider the particular fire hazard associated with the building and the nature of the occupancy. The hazard will consider the items with regard to existing control measures which are either already inherent within the building or implemented through the management procedures. The answers are either Yes / No or Not Applicable (N/A). Each hazard is assessed in accordance with the fire risk rating system. This includes consideration of the hazard in terms of the potential to harm (severity) and their likelihood (probability) of occurring. In addition a specific risk rating is applied in consideration of the controlling measures in place and subsequently considers the timescales within which the measures should be implemented. The Action plan details the significant findings of both technical and procedural measures that should be considered necessary to address the risk identified. It is a register of the remedial and advisory actions to be carried out in accordance with the priorities defined using the fire risk rating system. To reduce the risk to an acceptable level all Action Plan items should be addressed. The Fire Risk Assessment information is gathered using non invasive physical inspections of the property. Where floor plans are available these have been used utilised and direct conversation or information has been gathered from on-site staff. Digital photographs have also been taken and included for means of identification of locations and hazards The new Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires a fire risk assessment to be carried out and the significant findings recorded. The process followed was as follows: The building was inspected, hazards were identified and the fire risk categorised as high, medium or low. The existing measures were recorded as well as any recommended action. Where actions have been recommended these are in line with British Standards. Hazards included any sources of ignition (sparks, electrical equipment, heat sources etc), dangerous substances (flammable materials, combustible materials, gases etc) and unsatisfactory structural features (absence of fire stopping, ducts and voids and compromised protected routes). Any areas where evacuation of occupants could be compromised were also classed as hazards. A high fire risk was categorised in areas where there is likely to be a large number of people or old, young or disabled people. Areas with flammable processes or large quantities of heat or combustible materials were also categorised high risk as well as any areas where structural features would allow the spread of smoke or fire from one part of the building to another. A normal fire risk was categorised where a fire is likely to remain localised or to spread slowly enough to allow people to escape to a place of safety or where there is an effective automatic means of detecting and giving warning of fire. A low fire risk was categorised where there is minimal risk to life safety and the risk of fire occurring is negligible and the risk of fire, smoke or fumes spreading is negligible.

Timescales given include consideration for practicality and financial impact to Bluezone Ltd when planning their implementation. In order to reduce the risk to an acceptable level it is recommended that all Action Plan items are implemented 5. Risk Matrix Building / Area should not be occupied until risk is reduced. Fatality or total loss of property Exposure Improbable – no known instances of occurrence <10% Essential that efforts are made to reduce the risk; measures to be implemented within set timescales. Serious damage to property Considerable resources may have to be allocated to reduce the risk; where a building is occupied urgent action should be undertaken. Permanent injury; permanent damage to property. The following risk matrix has been used to prioritise and quantify the individual fire safety deficiencies identified. Action / Consequence No Further Action is necessary, detailed records needed. No serious injuries, little or no damage to property. No major additional controls needed consideration for improvements which have minor cost incurrence.
