Observations and Comments

Has a fire risk assessment been carried out and documented in the last 12 months?

A fire risk assessment is a legal requirement for virtually all non-domestic premises, and for certain multiple-occupancy dwellings and parts of such dwellings. Guidance is given in PAS 79.

Is the minimum quantities of class A extinguishers achieved?

Class A materials are generally present in all premises and occupancies. The minimum quantity of extinguishers with an A rating should be calculated as follows:
a) for any storey with a floor area less than or equal to 400 m2, there should be:
1) at least two (2) extinguishers with a class A rating; having
2) a combined minimum total fire rating of.

Are any additional extinguishers required to ensure that the level of cover at the premises is at least sufficient and, where applicable, in accordance with BS 5306-8.

Have site personnel been trained in the use of extinguishers?

The competent person should bring to the attention of the responsible person the legal requirement for training. Every opportunity should be taken to instruct personnel in the use of extinguishers, and to demonstrate their performance.
Extinguishers for different fire classifications will have different training requirements.

NOTE Attention is drawn to legal obligations concerning training for the use of fire extinguishers.

Are powder fire extinguishers present within this premise?

The discharge of a powder extinguisher within buildings can cause a sudden reduction of visibility and can also impair breathing, which could temporarily jeopardise escape, rescue or other emergency action. For this reason, powder extinguishers should generally not be specified for use indoors, unless mitigated by a health and safety risk assessment.

Are the extinguishers available for immediate use at all times?

This is achieved by siting extinguishers in conspicuous positions on brackets, on floor stands or within cabinets.

Is the position and type of a fire extinguisher indicated on a sign so that, if the extinguisher is removed, this can be identified during a safety inspection, and a replacement ordered.

Attention is drawn to Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996 [6] and the Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1996 [7] in respect of indicating the location of fire-fighting equipment.

Are extinguishers mounted correctly?

Small extinguishers with a mass up to and including 4 kg should be mounted so as to position the handle approximately 1.5 m from the floor. The carrying handle of larger, heavier extinguishers should be approximately 1 m from the floor (but see Note).
WARNING. Care should be taken to ensure that extinguishers do not themselves cause injuries by being dislodged and falling onto limbs or bodies.
NOTE Extinguishers may also be positioned on fire-stands, fire-points or in cabinets, in which case these height recommendations need not be followed.

Is the provision of replacement extinguishers achieved?

The responsible person should ensure that the provision of extinguishers on site does not fall below the minimum recommended by this part of BS 5306 and the fire risk assessment. Discharged extinguishers should therefore be recharged or replaced after use. This may be achieved by making sufficient spare extinguishers available.

Engineers Comments

Fire Safety Log Book

Is there a fire safety log book available?

A fire safety logbook and maintenance record should remain on the premises at all times. The register will assist in proving compliance with your legal responsibilities in relation to fire safety and should be completed following the inspection, test and maintenance of any of the items required by the legislation.
The logbook should be available for inspection by any Fire Officer who inspects your premises under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 or by any service engineer as required.

Responsible Person
I hereby confirm that I fully understand the finds of this report and that all works have been completed to my satisfaction. I also confirm that I am duly authorised to sign this document.
