Thu 28 Mar 2024, 7.45-10.15am

Building Bulletin 100, ‘Design for Fire Safety in Schools’ (BB100), advises how to design School Buildings so that they satisfy Part B of the Building Regulations as indicated in the DfE Output specification.  In addition alternative guidance such as British Standard 9999. Existing Schools are required to undertake risk assessments to identify the general fire precautions needed to safeguard the safety of occupants in case of fire, including their safe means of escape.

Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRO) fire legislation has become simplified. The Department for Communities and Local Government has produced a guide for schools - fire safety risk assessment: educational premises. The guide deals with the provision and management of fire safety.
