BS 9999 – more than just a fire safety standard

fire safety bs 9999 1

If two identical buildings catch fire, one filled with paper, and one filled with sand, it is a reasonable assumption to make that that the building filled with sand will burn slower and is therefore in a lower category of fire risk assessment. This type of analysis, taking into account the individual circumstances of a building – its contents, for example – is used to help identify risks as part of standard BS 9999.
