FIRE RISK ASSESSMENTS FOR CARE HOMES

Looking for help with your care home fire risk assessments? We can help.

Fire safety is incredibly important within care homes as they house some of the most vulnerable people in our society. But care homes do present a range of unique challenges when it comes to fire safety and the consequences of getting fire safety wrong can not only be fatal, but may result in a care home being rated “inadequate” by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and may even result in personal prosecution.

With that in mind, fire risk assessments for care homes need to be exhaustive, up to date and reflective of the bespoke nature of your particular facility.

Some of the most common fire risks in care homes include smoking by residents, use of electrical equipment and fire being able to spread quickly and easily throughout the premises. 

Emollients and skin creams are an added fire safety concern within care home environments, especially when used by people who spend extended periods in a bed or armchair due to illness or impaired mobility. So when conducting fire safety risk assessments in residential care premises, these types of potential risks will always be taken into consideration.

While the responsibility of this may seem overwhelming, we can make sure your care home fire risk assessment is accurate, thorough and completely bespoke to your particular care home and its residents.
