Fire Risk Assessment Guide for Hammersmith & Fulham, London

Hammersmith & Fulham is a vibrant borough in West London known for its diverse community and bustling commercial areas.

Ensuring fire safety in this area is paramount to protecting residents, businesses, and the unique character of the borough. Conducting a comprehensive Fire Risk Assessment (FRA) is a crucial step in maintaining safety and compliance with legal requirements.

A Fire Risk Assessment involves identifying potential fire hazards, assessing risks, and implementing measures to mitigate those risks. Key elements of an FRA include recognizing sources of ignition, fuel, and oxygen, and evaluating the likelihood and impact of these elements causing harm. Protecting people, especially vulnerable groups such as the elderly, children, and individuals with disabilities, is paramount.

Recording findings and actions taken during the FRA is a legal obligation. An emergency plan should be developed, and all occupants must be informed and instructed on fire safety procedures. Regular training sessions for staff on using fire safety equipment and procedures are crucial to ensure preparedness. Legal obligations for FRAs are guided by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, and compliance with the London Fire Brigade (LFB) guidelines is mandatory.
