Fire Inspection Action Plans are issued with specific timelines in response to the identification of legislative breaches or deficiencies during a fire inspection. These corrective measures are implemented to ensure compliance with fire safety regulations. Whilst they are guidance, Assured will support you as you navigate your way through the Action Plan. Here are some steps to follow when correcting violations found during fire inspections:

  • 1

    Review the inspection report: Carefully review the fire inspection report to understand the violations or deficiencies identified by the fire inspector. Make note of any immediate corrective actions that need to be taken.

  • 2

    Prioritize corrective actions: Determine the severity of each violation and prioritize corrective actions accordingly. Address any critical violations that pose an immediate risk to safety first.

  • 3

    Develop an action plan: Create a detailed action plan outlining the steps needed to correct each violation. Assign responsibilities to relevant individuals or departments to ensure that the necessary actions are taken.

  • 4

    Implement corrective actions: Take the necessary steps to correct each violation as outlined in the action plan. This may include repairing or replacing fire safety equipment, updating fire safety plans, or conducting additional employee training.

  • 5

    Document all corrective actions: Maintain detailed records of all corrective actions taken to address the violations. This documentation will serve as evidence of your commitment to fire safety and compliance with regulations.

  • 6

    Schedule a follow-up inspection if required: If the violations identified during the initial inspection require a follow-up visit, schedule it promptly. Ensure that all necessary corrective actions have been completed before the follow-up inspection.

    Continually monitor and improve fire safety measures: Regularly review and update your fire safety measures to prevent future violations. Conduct periodic self-inspections to identify any potential issues or deficiencies before the next official inspection.

By promptly addressing violations found during fire inspections, you can ensure compliance with fire safety regulations and maintain a safe working environment for your business, employees, and customers.
