Fire Safety

  • Fire safety legislation applies to the 'responsible person' in virtually all workplaces including hotels, guesthouses and similar premises.
  • A 'suitable and sufficient' fire risk assessment must be carried out, and where there are five or more employees, the assessment should be recorded.
  • There should be one person responsible for the fire risk assessment and ensuring that fire protection and prevention measures are observed and maintained.
  • An emergency plan should be drawn up. It should be displayed in the form of a fire action notice in guest rooms and adjacent to the fire alarm call points in the staff and common areas.

What is a Fire Risk Assessment?

A fire risk assessment is a structured consideration of the fire hazards and management of fire in the premises. It can be undertaken in five steps.

  • Identify the fire hazards e.g. cooking equipment, lighting, electrics etc
  • Identify the people at risk e.g. guests, staff etc
  • Evaluate, remove, reduce and protect from risk.
  • Record, plan, inform and train.
  • Review the assessment periodically.
