Protecting health care premises
 

All GP’s surgeries, drop-in centres, and other health care premises need to be able to protect employees, patients, and visitors in the event of a fire. Though all fire prevention should start with promoting awareness and education, there are a number of applications that these kind of premises should install to aid safe evacuation and prevent spread should a fire break out.

Fire Alarms

No matter how thorough your risk assessment, there is still always a chance of an outbreak of fire within a health care premises due to machinery and flammables stored on site. Having fire alarms installed is a legal requirement, and will help prevent harm to individuals and damage to the premises that is costly to repair.

Integrated fire alarms that are connected to locked doors might be appropriate for some health care premises, but not all. When deciding which kind of system your properties require, consider the nature of your premises and choose a system accordingly. If you are unsure of what kind of system you require, please get in touch. We can advise on the most appropriate alarm system for your workplace.

Emergency Lighting

Emergency lighting will help should there be a need to evacuate, and is also a legal requirement for health care premises. In the event of a power failure, emergency lighting will continue to work, and can be used by employees to direct patients and visitors along the fire escape routes and to safety so is essential for premises that regularly have visitors and patients that are unaware of the floor plan and layout of the property.

Push Points

In some cases, an outbreak of fire will fail to trigger an alarm and will instead be spotted by an individual. In this situation an alarm should be able to be triggered manually. Installing push points in various locations of your premises that are easy to access both by employees and patients, will mean that individuals can sound the alarm when a fire is discovered.

Always ensure that your health care premises complies with best practice procedures and regularly carries out fire risk assessments and training. For further information about fire safety, check out the UK Governments Fire Safety Risk Assessment for Health care Premises document or contact your local council.
