Fire Safety Audit

A fire safety audit is a thorough inspection of a non residential premises, along with relevant documentation, to make sure that it is being properly managed with regards to fire safety. It will be carried out by a fire safety inspector, though official titles can sometimes vary. An audit can also involve interviews with your staff to check that they are aware of proper fire safety procedures. 
One of the most important parts of the audit will involve reading through all relevant documentation regarding fire safety, how it is managed and how staff are kept aware of it. 

The necessary documentation can include:

  • A fire risk assessment
  • Records of fire drills and staff fire safety training
  • List of dangerous substances in the premises
  • Proof that fire prevention systems (alarms, sprinklers etc.) have been adequately tested
  • Document detailing protocol for evacuation in the event of a fire

What documentation is required during a fire safety audit can vary from place to place. This is just another reason to prepare well in advance by looking up local fire safety laws and following them to the letter.
