Am I correct in thinking that there will be fire extinguishers suitable for electrical fires in the exhibition halls?

Hi there,

The response from MOSI is:
Yes, the building has a normal provision of fire extinguishers but if he
perceives an enhanced fire risk we need to know asap as the building is
made of wood!

I assume, though, that you are simply thinking through all eventualities as a part of your Risk Assessment? And this includes the (very remote) risk of an electrical fire?

Cheers,

Torben

Yes exactly that, here is the quote from my risk assessment:
As with all mains electrical appliances there is a very small but finite risk of fire so there needs to be fire extinguishers suitable for electrical fires to be present in the hall.
 
And in the actions section:
Check there are suitable fire extinguishers on site.

Which is why I asked.

Thanks, Chris

I think due to the large screen it will be wires, that will need assessing to equipment. Do you have a standard format that could be filled in on the friday?  most are hand tools we are bringing.  cogs and trapped finger equipment.
with thanks

My colleague Julie Earith will have forms for people to fill in on Friday if they are really stuck.  Though we'd much rather you did them beforehand if at all possible and will be glad to advise if you're stuck...John, MOSI.
