Fire Risk Assessments
For Industrial Sites
Industrial sites, particularly manufacturing facilities, carry the highest risk of fires in the UK, with 1,749 reported fires in 2020/21 alone. It's not surprising, considering the key factors within manufacturing sites that increase the risk of fires breaking out. Safeguarding manufacturing premises and employees from potential fire hazards is vital for any manufacturing business looking to remain in the sector.
Our expert fire risk assessors follow a comprehensive fire risk assessment checklist tailored specifically for manufacturing facilities. We conduct thorough assessments to identify and address the key risk factors prevalent in manufacturing environments.
Common factors that lead to the breakout of fire within manufacturing premises include:
- Flammable Materials - Our assessment ensures these materials are properly stored and handled to prevent potential ignitions
- Hot Work Operations - We assess these activities and implement adequate safety measures to prevent sparks or slag from igniting nearby flammable materials or gases.
- Combustible Dust - Our experts evaluate the risk of dust accumulation and implement measures to prevent dust explosions.
- Machinery and Equipment - We assess mechanical failures, electrical malfunctions, overheating, or friction risks and provide recommendations to prevent potential fires.
