We're the partner to draft
your fire prevention file.

A fire prevention file is not just a legal requirement, it is the backbone of your company’s fire safety. This file ensures that you are prepared for emergency situations, reducing the risk of injury and damage. With an up-to-date fire prevention file you can not only respond quickly because every second counts, but you can also take preventative measures that limit fire risks. This way your company, your staff or your assets remain protected.
This is not a bureaucratic formality, but an essential part of responsible entrepreneurship. Contact us or more information.

What are the 11 parts of the fire prevention file?

1. Knowledge is power: Risk analysis

A fire prevention file starts with a risk analysis. This is not paperwork to be put in a drawer. It is a living document that shows you where the risks lie and how you can avoid them. Consider electrical equipment that can cause sparks or storage areas containing flammable materials. By knowing these risks, you can determine them and take the right preventative measures.

2. A well-trained team: the firefighting service
Do your employees know what to do if a fire breaks out? According to Codex Book III, title 3, every employer must establish a fire fighting service. Your fire prevention file describes the organisation of your internal fire fighting service. It’s about more than just being able to use a fire extinguisher; it is about a team trained to act calmly and effectively when every second counts. Prevom can provide training for your first intervention team.
3. Clear instructions: written procedures

Panic is a bad advisor. Your file contains the written procedures step by step. These are your rules for emergencies and evacuation.

4. The road to safety: evacuation plan

Clear evacuation routes and procedures are the road map to safety. Your file contains a detailed plan that directs everyone to the nearest exit and assembly point.

5. Deployment of emergency services: intervention file

When emergency services arrive, they need immediate, accurate information. The intervention file in your fire prevention file is their guide that provides them with all the technical information for intervention.

6. Practice makes perfect: evacuation drills

Regular evacuation exercises turn your plans from theory into practice. We unburden you of your worries by providing preparation, guidance and reporting. This way you are in compliance with the annual obligation for evacuation exercises.

7. Equipment that saves lives: protective equipment

A list and map of where your fire extinguishers, alarms and other resources are located ensures that these life-saving intervention tools are always within reach.

8. In top condition: maintenance and inspection

Your firefighting equipment must always be ready for use. Your safety record keeps track of when each component was last checked and maintained.

9. Exceptions prove the rule: deviations

If you have special permission to deviate from standard procedures, your file will record why this is safe and what additional measures you have taken.

10. Advice from the experts

Advice from our fire safety experts gives you additional insights and recommendations to reinforce your fire safety.

11. Stronger together: communication with emergency services

Exchanging information with emergency services ensures that they are prepared to handle your specific situation.
