The paper “ The University of Central Lancashire Fire Safety Policy ” is a meaty example of the case study on management. Fire Safety management plan is considered to be essential not only to fight the fire accidents but also to minimize the possibility of its occurrence. This is considered to be a necessity in the management of most of the organizations because of mass losses of properties due to frequent occurrences of risks of fire. The University of Central of Lancashire in Preston has planned and opened an art indoor sports facility- the Sir Tom Finney Sports Centre (STFSC) to be used by all the students, staff, and members of the public for a broad range of sporting needs.
Below is a plan on the management of fire safety which I was requested by the university to prepare. The plan has to consider all dimensions including the architect design, legislative requirements, and the fire safety management systems. The report considers all the factors of means of escape in the construction of this sports facility, all the concepts related to the quantitative analysis of fire risk assessment, and the possible principles of law associated with fire safety and risk management policies. Means of escapeMeans of Escape is considered to be a structural means in which a secure route is made for the people to escape in case of an accident of fire in the building.
This should be possible even without the assistance of an outsider. These should be considered at all levels of planning for the construction of the building (Fitzgerald, 2001). The common sports facility at the university should have good and spacious alternative exits apart from the main doors designated to be accessed by any occupant.
These exits should lead all directions and safe places like an open field such that anyone who escapes an accident lands in a safe place. The University of Central Lancashire fire safety policy statementThe policy states that if you discover or suspect a fire first rise alarm, only stop to tackle a fire if it is safe to do so and you have been trained. The main interest of the fire and safety program at the University is to preserve the health of the students, staff, and visitors.
