Fire Safety Management Plan
9. Site Fire Safety Management Procedures
Fire Safety Management Procedures contain the instructions for the routine fire inspections along with the procedures to follow for fire drills, emergency evacuations and security alerts.
These procedures should be viewed as organic systems which are modified as issues arise, protection systems change or as the risk assessments require. As a minimum they should be reviewed following fire drills (on the sites where these are to take place).
A feedback system must exist between the Fire Marshals, usually via the Fire Safety Manager, so issues which arise on one site are communicated and actions implemented on all others.
10. Flammable chemicals
Wherever flammable chemicals are stored a specific flame-proof storage facility will be provided. All flammable chemicals stores are signed as such and spill containment and clean-up kits are available at each location. Volumes are kept to a minimum.
11. Hot Work Permits
COMPANY NAME requires that where any hot work is to take place that a permit system is in place. Hot work is defined as burning, welding, brazing, soldering, grinding or cutting work producing sparks, a common example of which is plumbing. Such works are usually carried out by contractors.
Contractors undertaking hot work should provide their own hot work permit system but where this is not in place, (for example, small plumbing companies or many self-employed people) the company will lay out the minimum standards which are to be followed.
The company standards are risk assessment based and require the completion of a permit / assessment form for the task. This permit / assessment must be completed and agreed with the company employee overseeing the work before commencing.
