Risk Assessment

Fire Risk Assessments

Our Sectors - Product Manufacturing

When it comes to product manufacturing, the risk of fire cannot be ignored. At the FPA, we understand that there are many fire safety issues associated with all types of product manufacturing, and we have helped multiple companies improve their fire safety management and reduce risks. Health and safety is a huge consideration, but often the expertise required to avoid fire risks can be difficult to achieve in house.

Some of the fire safety risks associated with product manufacturing environments include:

  • the storage of high quantities of valuable materials - both raw product and finished goods - mean that a fire could cause huge disruption to the production chain, and could ultimately have significant financial implications
  • complex manufacturing equipment with bespoke safety solutions that may operate at high temperatures or utilise flammable liquids, gases or dusts
  • large open spaces with limited compartmentation, which offers the potential for fire to spread
  • highly flammable liquids, oils, gases and paints
  • operating a safe evacuation procedure for high volumes of staff
  • specialist fire protection systems that need to be maintained, such as fire sprinkler or localised watermist systems, which should be tested and inspected by an independent third party
  • extract ductwork which leads to filters that can build up and prevent activation
  • significant dust or fume extraction systems with filtration or recovery facilities

At the FPA, our experts can partner with your in house team to:

  • work with your site health and safety manager and the responsible person, to ensure they are aware of all the relevant procedures to maintain the fire safety of their building
  • conduct an impartial and thorough inspection of sprinkler systems, as required by the LPC Rules for Automatic Sprinkler Installations 2015
  • complete a thorough fire risk assessment that takes into consideration all working procedures and operations
  • undertake comprehensive assessments in accordance with the requirements of the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR)
  • help you improve procedures to reduce the risk of potential fires or explosions within budgetary requirements
