Our most recent fire risk assessment was undertaken in a restaurant. The were a number of significant findings:
There was good standard of fire training carried out. This included in house fire marshal training and also induction training for new staff.
Regular fire drills were undertaken. The manager recorded the time each drill evacuation took. This practice can mean that some staff try to beat the last time!! So therefore we do not usually recommend this practice.
Some fire doors had smoke seals that were worn and needed replacing. The level of fire doors was generally good. If there are a number of poor fire doors, we often recommend a more in depth fire door survey.
Fire extinguishers were maintained annually by a competent person. There was also records of monthly in house checks.
There was some evidence of building works in service risers. Some risers required fire stopping were pipes went through walls.
There was no record of a disabled evacuation policy and also poor knowledge of the requirement for this.
Although the fire doors were in good condition, some fire doors were found propped open. In addition, there was evidence of door wedges next to closed doors, which suggests that they were open at times.
Fire exits were all ready and available. However, one fire exit had a different opening mechanism than the others. There was an incorrect "How to open" sign.
Smoke detectors in service risers were covered with plastic caps. This was left over since the building work.
The boiler room had been used to store some old and defunct equipment. This should be removed.
Good records of fire alarm tests, fire extinguisher monthly checks and also monthly flick test of emergency lighting.
Despite the recent building work, there was no evidence of contractor or hot work policies.
