Grease Extract Fire Risk Assessment

The kitchen grease extract system presents particular hazards due to the potential for the accumulation of grease, which forms a hidden combustion load. Under certain circumstances flame or very high temperature within the duct can ignite the grease causing fire to spread rapidly through the duct. Therefore, it is of particular importance that grease extract systems are regularly are risk assessed and inspected and cleaned as required, to ensure they do not pose a major potential fire risk at any time.


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 B&ES Association document TR19 "Cleanliness of Ventilation Systems" provides specific guidance on methods of measuring and defining cleanliness as a bench mark for good practice. GreadDuct UK conduct kitchen grease extract risk assessments in line with RC44.






Your responsibility

Ensure in accordance with Fire Safety and Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations that kitchen grease extract systems (canopies, filters, ductwork, risers and fans) in kitchens, restaurants, hotels, pubs, canteens, food production areas, hospitals, schools and the like are risk assessed to establish if there are risks of fire, then carry out actions to reduce such fire risks identified. This will also be a requirement of your buildings insurance policy.

  • - Identify and assess the sources of risk
  • - Prepare a scheme for preventing or controlling the risk
  • - Appoint a person to be managerially responsible
