How can I ensure Fire Safety for my hospitality business?

Hospitality businesses have a high-risk nature meaning that fire safety should be done thoroughly. Therefore, you should be taking preventative steps to protect your property, employees, and customers. A key step is fire risk assessments. 

Special Considerations

Hospitality businesses require special considerations and a more thorough fire risk assessment in some cases to ensure comprehensive protection from fire. 

Kitchen and Cooking Safety

We will inspect the following:

  • Maintenance of appliances to avert malfunctions causing fires
  • Safe storage of flammable materials away from heat sources
  • Adequate ventilation to prevent fume build-up and grease accumulation
  • The installation and upkeep of efficient fire suppression systems

Guest Safety

We will check each guest room for:

  • The necessary equipment and evacuation plans such as smoke detectors, sprinklers, and clear evacuation instructions
  • All of your exit routes, ensuring they are clearly marked and obstruction-free

Staff training and communication

We provide detailed guidance on:

  • Evacuation protocols
  • Optimal fire extinguisher utilisation
  • Effective communication procedures during emergencies

Additionally, we will:

  • Define the roles and responsibilities that each staff member should have in the case of a fire
  • Provide information that staff should convey to guests to ensure their safety in the event of a fire

If following our fire risk assessment staff should require fire awareness, extinguisher, and/or fire warden training - we provide these courses separately which you can find on our training courses page here.

Through a comprehensive fire risk assessment, our BAFE SP205 certified assessors will thoroughly evaluate your restaurant's safety measures.
