Fire Prevention for Schools
The impact of a major fire at a School can be massive. It could be devastating for staff, students, parents and anyone associated with that educational establishment. As well as having to deal with the immediate shock, it can lead to longer term issues such as replacing equipment and potentially building new classrooms and buildings. Therefore it is of vital importance that all fire prevention for schools is always dealt with by professionals.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires all schools to carry out risk assessments to identify the general fire precautions needed to safeguard the safety of occupants in case of fire, including their safe means of escape. During this procedure the following steps are meant to be carried out:
- Identify the hazards
- Identify people at risk
- Evaluate, remove or reduce risks and provide protection
- Record, plan, inform, instruct and train staff in all relevant procedures
- Review actions
Certain areas of schools will require more consideration than others when it comes to fire prevention. For example, storage areas and cleaning cupboards containing flammable materials will need to be monitored closely so that they are tidy and secure.
