Fire Risk Assessment Template Checklist

Created by: SafetyCulture Staff | Industry: General | Downloads: 1,461

This general assessment template aims to identify and reduce the risk of fire and can be used everywhere. It is divided into three sections: First section covers detailed information about the building and occupants. The second section focuses on identifying hazards and control measures. Lastly, the third section sums up the assessment by generalizing the observation of the two components: 1) Likelihood of fire and 2) Consequences of fire
