6. Conclusion and Safety Rating

Is the active Fire Risk Assessment currently suitable and sufficient?

Current Site/Building/Ward/Unit Fire Risk Rating

Conclusion It can be concluded that with the implementation of the recommendations within the timescales provided as found in the Part 5 - Management of Hazards and Risk: Significant Findings and Action Plans of this risk assessment and the continued support of BHFT Compliance and Risk Services Team, the occupants of the building are working within a safe environment that is broadly compliant with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. It must be noted if the recommendations are not implemented within required timescales, persons within the risk assessed and adjacent building/department/ward/unit will be at a greater life risk should a fire incident occur.
