We are currently out of step with required fire safety precautions, not just in the workshop, but across all of DoES' rooms.

We've had a couple of quotes from fire service companies that need looking into and a decision making. So far, we have been told that we need C02 and Water extinguishers in each of the three rooms (main room, workshop and Dinky), plus yearly servicing.

If there are any questions that you think need addressing and clarifying, please let me know and I can factor these in in any future discussions.

It looks like the other tenants are using Simon Walter from Rhino Safety for:

  • Fire Risk assessments
  • Legionella testing
  • Asbestos Register (Of which there is none so dont worry)
  • Health & safety policies and procedures etc for communal areas

Doesn't look like there's a group discount but I imagine it might be quicker to go with them as they'll be in the building already (just listing a "pro", not making a recommendation)

This may not be the right place (new issue?) but wondered if we may need advice from a fire officer (local frie brigade can do this for free I believe but not sure) on fire escape procedure for any people with limited mobility given lifts are usually out of action/dangerous in a fire. This could be identifying a refuge (cant seem to find latest plans to check there prob. is one already..) or getting hold of a special chair for carrying (by identified hench members) people down the stairs. what do you reckon @Robotorium ?
I've tried to find previous issues thinking of this but along the way ive added a Building: Accessibility label so we can search for them quick if thats ok happy to remove if Im not following latest label rationale. Apols if this already covered elsewhere or a landlord issue but its worth us having a plan even if its 'use the refuge'

You don't appear to have assigned the Building: Accessibility label to this issue, I notice there's an existing "Accessibility" label too.

Don't think this is the wrong place to ask though. There's definitely an assigned refuge but don't know of any provision for chair or any other facilities.

Great did remember it being mentioned sorry @Robotorium ! but trawling thru issues could not find it. We can just make a note in our own procedures that this is our plan but this might come under wider plan to evacuate the whole building really which im sure jason & co have in place. Maybe Building: Accessibilty not necessary now unless we want issues specifically about the building seperate from general accessibility but ill leave both in for now but delete if you disagree. Also didnt spot existing label sorry...

The fire risk assessment was covered in #1067, so I think this issue is about:

  • Ensuring we have the right number and types of fire extinguisher
  • Seeing what needs to be done re disabled refuge. There definitely isn't a sign by the main door (which is where I understand the refuge to be). Is that all that's needed? Something like this refuge sign I presume? I've pinged Jason to check with him about it.

@amcewen did you get anywhere with Jason putting a sign up?

@DoESsean can you ping Rhino and 1 other company (one of the ones we've previously used, actually the people we used to re-fill our CO2 ones could be good) asking about prices to assess our fire extinguisher provision? I don't believe we need them to do a fire risk assessment and other things, just tell us how many fire extinguishers we need and provide them.

Might be we can just buy a load ourselves although I believe you have to "provision" them so just getting off Amazon may not be enough.

Jason is going to put a sign up (if it's not up already - he showed it to me the other day, so it's in progress if not already done. Will keep an eye out next time I'm up in the office)
