Fire Risk Assessment Plans
Designed to enhance the completed fire risk assessment, a fire safety plan of the premises can convey much information from the fire risk assessment, a snapshot, or an overview of the findings and recommendations.
WHAT IS A FIRE SAFETY PLAN?
Having locations and quantities of firefighting equipment and life safety devices can also help the maintenance manager keep on top of regular maintenance too.
In public buildings, it’s another way to identify if something’s missing so remedial action can be taken promptly.
WHAT GOES ON A FIRE SAFETY PLAN?
At QDOS, We always believe in keeping drawings simple and easy to understand, so basic colour coding between existing and recommended items is our normal way of identification on your plans.
These fire safety plans can show:
Fire detection & alarm system devices
Fire safety signage
Fire compartmentation – including both fire doors and walls
Fire safety items – such as door self-closers and emergency push bars
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Places that undergo regular remodeling or improvement works can also benefit from having these plans available. Schools and colleges carry out such works between most term times which can lead to the re-location of some existing items or the requirement for additional fire safety items to be installed.
Having plans that show the fire compartmentation of the building can be so important too. Contractors can be made aware from the start of where correct fire stopping would be needed if their works penetrate any of these walls. In addition to this, it gives the maintenance manager or fire risk assessor a clear plan of high priority areas to check in any follow-up risk assessment following such building work.

Fire System Design
Yes, QDOS are accredited to BAFE SP203 for fire alarm system design. The accreditation is maintained by annual independent inspection from the National Security Inspectorate (NSI).
As a minimum, we require scaled plans of the property requiring a fire alarm system design, with the requested category of fire alarm system.
Additionally, full specifications and section drawings of the building are also extremely helpful in reducing assumptions made whilst designing a system from plan.
BS 5839-1:2017 has examples of the category of systems for various types of premises.
This is usually decided by risk assessment, fire strategy report or the building insurance requirement.
