Fire risk assessment, the term itself says a lot. Identification of all potential sources of ignition which can give rise to fire such as naked flames, hot surfaces (like heaters, electrical equipment, lighting), other potential fire hazards like cutting, welding of equipment etc. is termed as fire risk assessment.
We all remember the iconic image of 11 workers sitting on a beam, 69 floors high of an under construction Empire State Building in 1931. We remember that image for many different reasons, mostly positive but from a safety perspective, we remember it for one thing and one thing only i.e. how unsafe the work practices used to be. Not just that, but safety wizards have been using that image as what ‘NOT TO DO’ at work in their safety seminars and trainings.
