Kitchen Extract Compliance

extract The kitchen grease extract system presents particular hazards due to the potential for the accumulation of grease, which forms a hidden combustion load. The Health & Safety Executive and industry and insurance guidance and regulations stipulate that kitchen extract systems should be kept clean to minimise fire and other risks. And the BESA specification TR19® Grease ‘Fire Risk Management of Grease Accumulation within Kitchen Extraction Systems’ provides specific guidance on methods of measuring and defining cleanliness as a bench mark for good practice.

Building Managers are required to:

  • Identify and assess sources of risk
  • Prepare a scheme for preventing or controlling the risk
  • Appoint a person to be managerially responsible
  • Implement and manage precautions
  • Keep records of the precautions implemented
