Fire Risk Assessment

Mission

The Task Group on Risk will develop guidance on the application of risk assessment in fire protection design and the use of risk assessment methodologies in the design and assessment to building and/or process fire safety.

SFPE Risk Task Group Drafts Flowchart that Will Outline Process in 2nd Edition of the SFPE Guide to Fire Risk Assessment

The SFPE Risk Task Group is currently updating the 1st edition of the SFPE Guide to Fire Risk Assessment. The Task Group recently completed a draft flowchart of the fire risk assessment process that will be described in this guide.  The process is summarized in the flowchart depicted below.  Each activity in the guide will be shown on the flowchart.  For clarity purposes, not all the possible interactions between activities will be represented with arrows in the flowchart.  It is expected that a fire risk assessment may have multiple interaction and iterations between tasks that analysts will have to manage as the project progresses and its applied throughout the life of the facility or process for which it is developed. 

  

Additionally, the Task Group has started the process to draft chapters on fire scenarios, frequency analysis and consequence analysis. 

Current Activity

The Task Group is currently drafting the 2nd edition of the SFPE Engineering Guide to Fire Risk Assessment.
