Accident Report Book

Accident Report Book

Accident Report Book The Accident Report Book is used by many industries in the UK, from hotels, factories, offices, cafes and manufacturing. Keeping regular, updated records of any incidents, accidents or near misses in the workplace is essential to management. It also enables you to uphold safety standards in the workplace that protect employees and customers alike. Every commercial environment should have a report book that is easily accessible for management members of staff. The recording of incidents allows a company to be aware of any faults that they may have in the workplace such as trip hazards, lack of protective gear and unhelpful signage. Once these risks are assessed, preventative measures can be put in place to avoid such accidents happening again. This Accident Report Book is A4 size, therefore unrestricting with a readable font. Each page has space for an accident entry which is split up into four simple sections: 1) Person affected/ injured – includes name, address, occupation etc. 2) Person reporting the incident – as above 3) Accident/ incident – includes date, time, location, equipment involved 4) Description of incident. – space to detail the cause and nature of the injury A signature and date are then required to verify the entry and keep track of all incidents, in order to alert the user to any areas that require immediate attention. Fire risks are categorised into classes. Fire extinguishers are then rated in their ability to fight these different classes of fires. Their fire fighting capability is thus indicated by letters for fire classes and a number which stands for the strength of the extinguisher in fighting this class. The higher the number, the more powerful the extinguisher is. Fire Classes: Class A Fires :  Solid combustibles, such as wood, paper, textiles Class B Fires :  Flammable liquids, such as petrol, diesel and paraffin Class C Fires :  Flammable gases, such as LPG and natural gas Class E Fires : Fires caused by electrical equipment (indicated by an electric spark symbol and not the letter E) Class F Fires :  Cooking fats, such as deep fat fryers oils Med Approved : Marine Approved for Boats CO² fire extinguishers These units use pure carbon dioxide to suffocate fire and leave behind no residue once the fire is extinguished. They were originally designed for class B fires, which are flammable liquid fires, such as oil, petrol and solvents, however, these days CO² extinguishers are mainly used for the fire fighting on live electrical equipment. They are often installed next to foam extinguishers in offices with computers. The size of CO² units is stated in kg (of CO² gas) and the portable CO² extinguishers weigh 2 and 5 kg. In addition to our brand new CO² products we offer fully factory refurbished CO² extinguishers (pressure tested and re-painted). A specialist version of the CO² extinguisher is anti-magnetic and is installed in areas of high magnetic activity, such as hospitals’ MRI scanner suites. Powder fire extinguishers Also called ABC powder or dry powder extinguishers are powerful and versatile and can be used for class A (burning solids), class B (burning liquids) and class C (burning gas) fires. They can not be used on fat fires and deep fat fryer fires, as their jet would spread the burning fat. They should also not be used in confined spaces (small kitchen or boat cabins), as the powder can easily be inhaled. The residue of the powder makes the clean up after a discharge very difficult. We also stock a special powder fire extinguisher used for class D fires of flammable metals such as burning magnesium swarf. When comparing powder units, please note that BC powder does not offer the same protection as ABC powder. Water fire extinguishers These are used on class A fires of solid combustible materials, such as wood, fabric and paper. The water penetrates burning materials to cool down the fire, which extinguishes the fire and stops it re-igniting. Near electrical equipment you should choose water fire extinguishers with additives, as these prevent electrocution. A new development are the ‘dry’ water mist extinguishers, which can be used on class A, B, C and F fires and are very easy to use. These can be installed in buildings, where extinguisher training of all residents/staff is not feasible, such as in HMOs etc. Dry water mist is suitable for A, B, C and F class fires. Foam fire extinguishers These are used on burning solids (Class A) and liquid fires (Class B), such as burning petrol. They are excellent in general office or home environments. The foam penetrates burning fabrics and solids and forms a cooling blanket of top of the fire. Foam extinguishers are widely used in office environments, as they offer a reasonably wide cover without the clean-up problem of a powder extinguisher. Foams can be used safely on electrical items, as long as they are 35kV tested and you keep a safety distance of 1m. Wet chemical fire extinguishers Wet chemical and ABF foam extinguishers are used on fat fires and deep fat fryer fires (Class F). The chemical of the wet chemical bonds with the burning fat and stops the supply of oxygen to the fat. It also cools down the fat. Wet Chemical extinguishers are used in professional kitchens, while ABF can be used in domestic kitchens.

A small coloured band indicates the type of fire extinguisher – red for water, white and red for water mist, cream for foam, blue for dry powder, yellow for wet chemical, green for clean agent and black for CO2 extinguishers. Importantly , your fire risk assessment should identify any hazardous material, so you match the type of extinguisher to your risk.   Help Page & FAQs Contact Us Safety Boot Standards Explained Clearmask: Bringing the Arts Back to Life We need to talk about Hi-Vis clothing Glossary Clearmask Panodyne Antigen Test Panodyne Antibody Test Easimask FSM16 Firechief Powder Extinguisher COVID-19 Tests Firer Supplies Safety Boots PPE Supplies Workwear Infection Control
