Control measure

Site-Specific Risk Information (SSRI): Waste sites

Control measure knowledge

Well-managed sites should have a site plan. If storing combustible waste, a permitted site must have a fire prevention plan. For information about contents of these plans refer to Environment Agency: Fire prevention plans.

Strategic actions

Fire and rescue services should:
  • Hold Site-Specific Risk Information (SSRI) and make this readily available to responding personnel
  • Consider participating in multi-agency site visits to enhance information gathering

Tactical actions

Incident commanders should:
  • Access and review any onsite environmental and fire prevention and mitigation plans

  • Consider other site-specific information that may be available through other agencies, such as environmental agencies or local authority

  • Obtain a site manifest and any Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) documentation
