Timber frame fire spread risk assessments.
HSG168 “Fire Safety in Construction” published by the Health and Safety Executive, requires a site-specific risk assessment to be undertaken to determine the impact of a site fire on neighbouring off site properties.
The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM) – Regulation 29 also requires the effect of fire from the site to be considered.
Blackburn Associates are able to complete fire spread risk assessments that will fulfil the requirements of these two documents by considering the risk of fire spread during the construction phase.
The fire risk assessment produced will analyse the risk of fire spreading to neighbouring buildings by using the industry standard best practice documents. It will provide recommendations for the specification of timber frame category and fire risk mitigation measures to be taken by the construction teams while they are on site and building the units.
Construction site fire risk assessments
Blackburn Associates are able to complete onsite fire risk assessments for your site safety file/notice board that would show the risks, control measures and an overall risk rating for the site.
The risk assessment would always be specific to your site and will be developed in consultation with the site or project manager.
