What the HSE say:

What do I have to do?

To help prevent accidental fires or explosions, you first need to identify:

  • the people who may be at risk/harmed
  • what substances, materials, processes etc have the potential to cause such an event, i.e. substances that burn or can explode and what might set them alight

Once you have identified the risks, you should consider what measures are needed to reduce or remove the risk of people being harmed. This will include measures to prevent these incidents happening in the first place, as well as precautions that will protect people from harm if there is a fire or explosion.

Key points to remember

  • Consider reducing the amount of flammable/explosive substances you store on site
  • Get rid of flammable/explosive substances safely
  • Keep sources of ignition (e.g. naked flames, sparks) and substances that burn (e.g. vapour, dusts) apart
  • Maintain good housekeeping, e.g. avoid build-up of rubbish, dust or grease that could start a fire or make one worse
  • Review your risk assessment regularly
  • Think about the risks of fire and explosions from the substances you use or create in your business and consider how you might remove or reduce the risks
  • Use supplier safety data sheets as a source of information about which substances might be flammable

You also need to consider the presence of dangerous substances that can result in fires or explosions as part of your fire safety risk assessment. This is required under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (in England and Wales) and under Part 3 of the Fire (Scotland) Act.

The Fire and Rescue Authorities deal with general fire safety matters in workplaces apart from on construction sites including shipbuilding where these are dealt with by HSE or its agents. Enforcement responsibility for fire safety where dangerous substances are kept and used generally lies with HSE (or local authorities if they inspect the premises).
