The Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP) has produced a new guide for fire risk assessors which will be available from the end of May.
The ASFP Guide to Inspecting Passive Fire Protection for Fire Risk Assessors is aimed at fire risk assessors and those directly involved in the specification, installation or maintenance of passive fire protection. It lays out clear, pragmatic guidance to enable the identification and inspection of all types of passive fire protection as part of a fire risk assessment, as required under UK legislation.
The document offers guidance on: Passive fire protection – what it is and how it works; building layout and construction; how to assess each type of passive fire protection measure within the context of a fire risk assessment for means of escape. It also provides examples of both good and bad workmanship, example checklists to compile an appropriate risk assessment and describes where to go for further guidance.
The guide is offered in a robust A5 spiral ring-bound hard copy format, for £20.00 plus £2.50 p&p. As part of a ‘new membership’ introduction package, the document will also be provided free of charge to those professionals joining the ASFP as an Affiliate member. The guide will also be available as a free PDF download from the ASFP website.
