PAS 7:2013 Fire risk management system. Specification

Current fire safety legislation and guidance is based on risk and focuses on individual premises and facilities. It is less specific about managing this risk from fire at an organizational level. In many cases, the person(s) with duties under legislation might be part of a larger organization with multiple sites and facilities with common working practices and procedures.

PAS 7 has been developed to provide a fire risk management system that operates at an organizational level. It can be applied in:

a) organizations that operate on multiple sites;
b) separate management divisions within an organization; or
c) individual premises within a single organization.

The PAS can be adopted by any organization wanting to implement a formal procedure to reduce the risks to life (of employees, customers and the general public), property, assets and the environment that are associated with fire in the working environment.

PAS 7 complements existing standards for fire risk assessment, such as PAS 79. It specifies requirements for integrating fire safety as a management system approach and can also be implemented with reference to BS 9999:2009, which defines a number of management levels and factors to be used in assessing fire safety management.

PAS 7 was sponsored by BB7 – Fire Risk & Resilience and the steering group comprised the Association of British Certification Bodies, Association of British Insurers, C.S. Todd & Associates Ltd, Chief Fire Officers Association, Fire Sector Federation, Institution of Fire Engineers, Marsh Insurance and the National Association of Healthcare Fire Officers.
