In these unprecedented times following the outbreak of Covid 19 businesses have had to adapt to how staff and customers/visitors enter and exit their sites.
In an effort to limit any infection transmission some firms have taken to propping open fire doors and external escape doors which vin principal seems a smart move, HOWEVER it must be remembered that fire doors are there to restrict the transmission of fire and smoke within a building and to allow those within to escape safely or remain in protected areas so there are serious consequences to actions of this type which should be discussed with the FRS and your risk assessor before they are implemented.
There are also potential consequences for doors that allow exit from the building – these doors are being left open to the elements and as such are suffering degradation and damage which will affect both performance and its ability to close correctly.
Therefore you should consider the potential issues of trying on the face of it a good idea which may in reality cause other problems.
Your FRA should reflect these changes and discussions with your assessor take place to qualify what is done, for how long and what rectification works may be needed.
