Fire Safety

You need to make sure that, based on the findings of the assessment, you take adequate and appropriate fire safety measures to minimise the risk of injury or loss of life in the event of a fire. This will include:

  • Training for relevant personnel
  • A means to raise the alarm in case of fire
  • An evacuation procedure
  • Access for emergency services
  • Signage and emergency lighting
  • Suitable escape routes and fire exits
  • Provision of suitable firefighting equipment
  • Measures to control hazards such as cooking, electrical items, gas cylinders, combustible items and arson

Your fire risk assessment should be based on the HM Government Guidance document:Fire Safety Risk Assessment, Open Air Events and Venues
