Venue: Zoom meeting
Speaker: Andy Anderson, Managing Director, SOA, Safety Ltd & SOA Engineering Ltd, Dalton-in-Furness.
Andy explained that a robust workplace Fire Risk Assessment needed to follow the basic principles of all risk assessments, but it also required the assessor to understand the design and construction of the building, the full range of activities that were undertaken on site, the way that fires start and spread and how the building(s) were occupied over 24 hours.
He also considered the conflicting demands of workplace compliance with Covid-19 regulations and the requirements of workplace emergency fire evacuation plans.
