Means of Escape Fire Safety Audit Guide
MEANS OF ESCAPE has designed a Guide to Basic Fire Risk Assessment following demand from owners and managers to better understand and act on their requirements under legislation.
The Means of Escape Fire Safety Audit Guide enables the responsible person to complete their fire risk assessment and file of evidence . From feedback on our website and monthly newsletter the greatest problem identified from our users was-“How do I start?”
This guide is designed to be the starting point for owners, employers and managers of small to medium sized organisations looking to conform to new legislation.
Our objective is to improve awareness of the need to be vigilant against fire, not just because of legislation but because it makes good business sense.
Few small to medium organisations remain in business following a serious fire, consider your employees and products, databases and files – Are you prepared?
In the event of a fire organisations can no longer rely on a fire certificate as a means of showing all has been done to ensure fire safety, responsibility is now in the hands of the owner, manager or employer who must complete a fire risk assessment under new legislation.
The Audit Guide includes easy to use and understand information including check lists and action items.
*Discounts available when purchased in bulk.
Your document is probably the best guide that has been developed specifically for small to medium size premises and businesses. We use your outstanding publication as a benchmark for a guide to basic fire risk assessments during presentations to our clients in Fire Awareness, Fire Warden, Fire Marshal and Fire Risk Assessors courses”

In the event of a fire, alarms will be ringing, smoke will be reducing visibility and a sense of fear spreading throughout the building. The only thing on people’s minds will be their quickest means of escape.Emergency evacuations need to be carried out quickly and above all, safely.
Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, premises are required to clearly mark all emergency escape routes and exits. The evacuation procedure is guided by designated fire personnel, in conjunction with an emergency evacuation plan.
Portable lollipop signs are an ideal way to identify the safe area, beyond the exit. Particularly useful for premises in built up areas such as city centres, that have no clear area to use as a regular assembly point.

“The effective and efficient evacuation of premises in an emergency is the responsibility of the designated fire personnel, in conjunction with an emergency evacuation plan”
Research into human behaviour, reaction times to alarms and post incident reports have always concluded that occupants react quicker when the evacuation is supported by authority figures who give good verbal instructions.
The most obvious authority figures are fire officers, fire wardens and marshals; staff who when working as a team, take up specific positions within the designated escape routes. By giving instructions in an assertive manner, these authority figures encourage occupants to leave the premises by the designated escape routes and if required to, assemble at a designated safe area. It is essential therefore, that these key personnel are easily identifiable to all occupants evacuating the premises.
Evacuation ‘A’ Boards
Evacuations need to be carried out quickly and efficiently, to ensure everyone in the building reaches safety within good time. In the case of a fire, alarms will be ringing, smoke will be reducing visibility and a sense of fear spreading throughout the building. The only thing on people’s minds will be their quickest means of escape.
To ensure a safe and efficient evacuation, it is recommended that organisations carry out regular fire drills. The purpose of a fire drill is to reiterate the sense that all occupants need to be familiar with all possible escape routes. No one can predict where a fire will break out, or where it will spread.
In the event of a fire, the usual exit route may be blocked, and occupants will have to use an alternative exit route. A stands are a useful tool during a fire drill, to block off common exit routes. This forces building occupants to find an alternative escape route.
The boards are also used in reiterating the importance of carrying out a regular fire drill in the building, whether it be a small shop or office, or 13 floor office block.
