Fire Safety in Hotels
The Importance of Fire Safety in Hotels
Fire safety in hotels is one of the most paramount aspects of hotel operation. Having the correct knowledge is invaluable and lifesaving. All responsible parties must be familiar with the fire risks in their building, and be aware of the fire safety regulations for hotel premises.
Fire safety in hotels and sleeping accommodation premises is particularly important to get right because often hotel guests will be unfamiliar with their environment and the hotel layout. Therefore, having the optimal standards of fire safety in hotels can optimize evacuation timing and reduce the negative impacts of an incident.
Fire Safety Regulations for Hotels
It's important to get it right.
To achieve maximum levels of fire safety in hotels, fire risk assessments must be completed thoroughly. Many hotels operate at multiple levels and contain lots of hazards.
The government issued a Fire Safety Risk Assessment booklet for hotels and sleeping accommodation. Click above to read the official PDF file regarding fire safety regulations for hotels.
As stated in the booklet, here are just a few common fire hazards that could threaten fire safety in hotels:
- Outdated fire safety equipment
- Hotel refurbishments and changes of layout
- Poorly installed fire doors
- Unfixed penetrations in hotel walls and floors
- Kitchen equipment
