Emergency Procedures

In the unfortunate event of a fire breaking out, it’s vital that everybody knows what to do and how to safely leave the building.

Emergency procedure plans should only be produced after a fire risk assessment has taken place. Your emergency procedures should be based on these findings. The document should be made readily available to staff, occupiers, visitors and enforcing authorities, and should be easy to understand.

RM Risk Management offers emergency procedures solutions to many different building and business types. No matter how complex the building is, we’re confident that our experts will deliver to the highest standard and offer guidance or explanation where necessary.

An emergency plan is only as successful as your occupants’ awareness of it, that’s why we understand the importance of regular testing and training.

Frequently Asked Questions

We've answered the common questions we get asked about this service

What information do you include in an emergency procedures plan?

An emergency plan typically consists of the following:

  • What to do when a fire is discovered
  • Alerting the rest of the building of a fire
  • Alerting the emergency services
  • Evacuation of premises (including those particularly at risk)
  • Power/process isolation

  • Emergency services liaison
  • Identification of key exit/escape routes
  • Signage and emergency lighting
  • Firefighting equipment
  • Specific fire extinguisher responsibilities
  • Training and responsibilities

Who should receive a copy of our emergency procedures plan?

The document should be made readily available to staff, occupiers, visitors and enforcing authorities to read. It is important that it is easy to understand.

Is it a legal requirement to document an emergency procedures plan?

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states the responsible person is required to create a plan to deal with any emergency and, where necessary, record any findings.

It is a legal requirement to carry out a suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment and action those findings accordingly. Usually the case will be that an emergency procedures document is produced off the back of the fire risk assessment.

How much does it cost?

Prices are dependent on the size and location of the building. We offer a discount to produce emergency procedures documents when ordered with a fire risk assessment.
