Report a Fire Incident

It is essential that all fires within UCL properties are reported regardless of their size. It is important for the UCL Fire Safety Manager to investigate fire occurrences to help establish any failures in communications or equipment, organisation systems and the possible cause. Furthermore, it is important statistically for insurance purposes and emergency planning to be able to monitor incidents or fire.

Fire Risk Assessments & Emergency Plans

This page displays individual fire risk assessments and emergency plans for UCL buildings where appropriate, and is provided for use by staff and visitors to comply with the requirements of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. This information is provided solely for use by UCL staff and students and is not to be used or distributed outside of UCL without the permission of the UCL Fire Safety Manager.

Fire Safety Management Standards

The fire safety management standards reflects the importance UCL attaches to Fire Safety and is committed to achieving good practice in the management of fire safety by assessing and managing fire risks to prevent harm to its staff, students, visitors and anyone else who may be affected by its activities.
