|Fire Wardens Check Sheet|
As part of your role as a Fire Warden we would like you to keep an eye out for any fire hazards in your workplace. To assist we have produced a Fire Wardens Check Sheet for you to use, it can be completed on a regular basis (the frequency of which will be determined by your work commitments) but ideally at least once a month. If you do identify any fire hazards could you in the first instance try to sort it out yourself or with your line manager before contacting UHSE

A small fire occurred during the testing of a Ford engine, the oil sensor line failed spraying oil onto an exhaust manifold which ignited and set fire to surrounding combustible items. The engine was isolated and the water suppression system activated by staff within the control room. The Fire Service attended this incident but confirmed that the water suppression system had extinguished the fire.

The fire alarm activated at 2235 hours on the 17th February 2015 our Security staff initially attended and decided to call the Fire Service on seeing the smoke. The Fire Service then declared a major incident which necessitated the pre-determined attendance of 6 Fire Appliances and one Chemical de-contamination unit. The fire was eventually extinguished following the advice of the on call duty Technical Manager.
