Around 70 fires in homes and business premises in England are started by fireworks every year.
With bonfire night just round the corner it is important to ensure that you enjoy your night as safely as possible. The safest place to watch fireworks is at a large public display as more injuries occur at smaller private parties.
If you are planning on have your own firework party make it safer by following the below Firework code:
- Plan your firework display to make it safe and enjoyable
- Keep fireworks in a closed box and use them one at a time
- Read and follow the instructions on each firework using a torch if necessary
- Light the firework at arm’s length with a taper and stand well back
- Keep naked flames, including cigarettes, away from fireworks
- Never return to a firework once it has been lit
- Don’t put fireworks in pockets and never throw them
- Direct any rocket fireworks well away from spectators
- Never use paraffin or petrol on a bonfire
- Make sure that the fire is out and surroundings are made safe before leaving.
Help protect your business from fire all year round with our online fire risk assessment system. This web-based platform provides you with access to your up-to-date assessment whenever you need it, from any device.
The live action plan provides a jargon-free report and a summary of colour coded risks, listed in order of priority. Each risk has a detailed report covering:
- The reason why it is not compliant with fire regulations
- What needs to be done to correct it
- Where its located including specific site details
- Who is responsible for overseeing the risk
- When it needs to be completed by.
This not only addresses all of the elements set out in the guidance and Publicly Available Standard for Fire Risk Assessments (PAS 79) but includes the ability for you to electronically record the results of your own checks, inspections and drills.
