Introduction to this document

Fire management - control measures

As you work through your fire risk assessment identifying fire hazards, you also need to decide what action to take to control them. Our control measures document will prompt you.

Risk reduction

In our fire risk assessment system, for more complex premises there are three main forms used to identify fire hazards:

  1. Fire Hazards - Sources of Fuel.
  2. Fire Hazards - Sources of Oxygen.
  3. Fire Hazards - Sources of Ignition.

These include a column for you to write down the risk control measures. 

Our Fire Management - Control Measures document is arranged in the same sequence as the fire hazards, addressing each one in turn and suggesting common precautions. For example, for the hazard of smoking materials, it’s suggested that smoking should be restricted to designated external areas and that statutory no smoking signs should be displayed.
