School fire risk assessments

When schools embark on structural changes to their premises, particularly during the summer months when students are on break, it is imperative to prioritise fire safety measures. These alterations, ranging from renovations to expansions, significantly impact the overall fire risk profile of the school environment. As such, a comprehensive fire risk assessment becomes not only necessary but also legally required in the UK.

The fire risk assessment identifies new fire hazards introduced by the structural modifications. For example, something as simple as upgrading the school canteen could lead to:

  • Electrical fire risks from toasters, microwaves, refrigerators

  • Class F and C fires from cooking oils, fats, grease and propane gases

  • Class B fires from chemicals, cleaning agents etc

Fire Safety in Education

Fire safety in the education sector is crucial for ensuring the well-being of students, staff, and faculty. Essential components include strategically placed and regularly maintained fire extinguishers for addressing small fires, clear and visible emergency signs to guide occupants to safety, and fire blankets in key areas like science labs and kitchens for smothering fires or protecting individuals. Regular training and drills on the use of this equipment further enhance safety and preparedness in educational institutions.
