The tables enable the user to help identify areas where gaps in competence exists and where improvement is required. 

The tables can be used in good faith; however, it is difficult to define every situation where there might be a fire risk. The tables do give the user a structured framework to base their decisions or to seek further clarity.

The user of the tables must understand the basic fire safety requirements for both a construction site and a completed building and the impact of their activities on these; for example, fire stopping, compartmentation, and escape routes.
