The paper “ Fire Safety Strategy” is a persuasive example of the presentation on management. The Fire Strategy incorporates four phases. Each phase will have huge features and requirements that have to be accomplished. The construction site GA will house five Thrifty Class boats. The cost of construction of one unit is estimated at £ 960,000,000. The Fire Strategy employs the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRFSO), other UK legislation, and international legislations that govern shipbuilding. Some of the components that are discussed at each of the phases include prevention measures, detection and alarm systems, escape provisions, asset protection measures, and means of extinguishment.

However, it is important to note that there are no specific standards and codes that guide fire safety in submarine construction. In normal shipbuilding and fire safety, some of the guiding standards are indicated in the ADB, BS9999 SOLAS A60 NFPA 101, and others. Therefore, the information will be collected from these guidelines, standards, codes, and others to create a submarine fire safety report. The following image shows the site. Figure 1 Construction Site GA 2.0 Phase 1: Pressure Hull and Module Construction 2.1 IntroductionThe pressure hull and module are constructed.

The pressure hull is responsible to protect external water pressure when the submarine is operational. The spaces during the construction period are small, and many hot works take place [1]. In addition, gasses can be produced during the period, which may affect the entire construction. The section is made of four compartments. The Aft and Fwd have curved ends, which form the front and end of the submarine parts. The middle parts, which are RC and Mid to accommodate the people and other accessories that are important for the use of the submarine [13].

The risk assessment table presents the hazards and partial discussion of these hazards. The following summaries phase 1: Figure 2: Phase 1 2.2 Risk Assessment Operations Characteristics of failure NO Operation Failure mode Causes of failure Effects of failure 1 Confined space operations Accidents associated with congestion Congestion within a small space The employees can get injured easily resulting in spoilage of the asset 2 Welding processes Fires and burns Excessive heat that exceeds 2040 is produced Scalding and burning of the employees. It can affect the quality of construction 3 Allied Processes Inappropriate use of tools and techniques Activities that take place include flame heating, brazing, torch cutting, welding, and carbon arc gouging Scalding and burning of the employees.

It can affect the quality of construction and destroy the asset 4 Spark producing operations Inappropriate use of tools and techniques The activities include abrasive blasting, drilling, and grinding Scalding and burning of the employees. It can affect the quality of construction and destroy the asset
