The Home Office’s Fire Statistics Monitor has recorded that there were over 300 fire-related fatalities in England during 2015-2016. Fire and Rescue Services (FRS) attended around 162,000 fires, with a 3% increase in fires in non-residential buildings. While the overall increase in fires comes from deliberately started fires, actual fatalities from fires are from accidental fires.
The threat from fire in the workplace is real, and widespread. There are plenty of common fire hazards – so common, in fact, that they are easily overlooked, which is why a fire risk assessment can be so critical in the workplace.
