  • Step 1: Identify the fire hazards.
  • Step 2: Identify people at risk.
  • Step 3: Evaluate, remove or reduce the risks.
  • Step 4: Record your findings, prepare an emergency plan and provide training.
  • Step 5: Review and update the fire risk assessment regularly.

What is a PAS 79 fire risk assessment?

PAS 79 sets out one way to carry out a fire risk assessment. It is intended to be used to produce a simple qualitative assessment of the risk from fire. It is particularly aimed at surveyors/inspectors providing a service to other organisations.

Types of Fire Risk Assessments

  • Type 1 Fire Risk Assessment: A non-destructive assessment of the common parts of the building.
  • Type 2 Fire Risk Assessment: An assessment of the common parts of the building that involves an element of destructive sampling.
  • Type 3 Fire Risk Assessment: A non-destructive assessment of the common parts and the flats of the building.
  • Type 4 Fire Risk Assessment: An assessment of the common parts and the flats of the building that involves an element of destructive sampling.

What are the 5 Fire Evacuation Strategies?

Simultaneous Evacuation.

This strategy is appropriate for many types of care home, normally small premises where residents can escape quickly and immediately to a place of total safety in open air and where it may be expected that all people inside are able to (and will) evacuate quickly to outside the building to a place of total safety.

This strategy may also be appropriate in more complex premises for visitors, wakeful mobile residents in day rooms and ancillary staff not required to assist with the evacuation of other residents.

Delayed Evacuation

Delayed evacuation is where occupants remain in their fire-protected rooms or refuges until the danger has passed or until they can be taken to a place of total safety. It is particularly relevant to premises providing residential care facilities. Some residents may be permanently or temporarily confined to bed, or attached to equipment or treatment devices, or they may be breathing oxygen-enhanced air.

Progressive Horizontal Evacuation

Progressive horizontal evacuation techniques allow the evacuation to be made by horizontal escape to adjoining fire compartments. The aim is to provide a place of 'reasonable safety' within a short distance. This system is necessary where visitors or, for example, residents in a residential care home are dependent on staff to assist their escape and is commonly used in hospitals as their primary evacuation method, particularly where patients must remain in bed.

Phased Evacuation

Phased evacuation is a system of evacuation in which different parts of the premises are evacuated in a controlled sequence of phases, those parts of the premises expected to be at greatest risk being evacuated first.

Two-Stage Evacuation

Two-Stage Evacuation provides an alarm to staff, which allows for the incident to be investigated before a full evacuation takes place. It is dependent on having an addressable fire alarm system which will indicate at the panel where the alarm has originated from. If a fire is discovered or there is no obvious indication of a cause for a false alarm, a second alarm is activated and the remainder of the building must be totally evacuated. This may be used in shops or nightclubs.
