Principles of fire risk assessment, Other Engineering

Principles of fire risk assessment:

The following principles of FRAs apply in the UK as they do in the USA:

  • justifying assumptions,
  • stating data sources,
  • giving the qualifications of the person conducting the FRA,
  • a hazard is the potential for harm to occur,
  • risk is likelihood of that hazard being realised and can be combined with the severity of the consequences,
  • they can be conducted quantitatively (numbers) or qualitatively (ideas),
  • they can be comparative or absolute,
  • uncertainties should be accounted for
  • 'what if' situations should be considered,
  • matrices are sometimes used.
