  • Keep your sources of ignition and flammable substances apart
  • Avoid accidental fires, e.g. make sure your heaters cannot be knocked over
  • Ensure you apply good housekeeping at all times
  • Consider how you detect fires e.g. installing smoke alarms and fire alarms or bells
  • Have the correct fire-fighting equipment for putting a fire out quickly
  • Keep your fire exits and escape routes clearly marked and unobstructed at all times
  • Ensure your workers receive appropriate training on procedures they need to follow
  • Review and update your risk assessment regularly
