Fire Risk Assessment

Business premises and residential buildings of more than one dwelling have a legal requirement to undertake a Fire Risk Assessment as required by The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

The assessment is a methodical look at your premises, the activities that are carried out there and the likelihood that a fire could start and cause harm to those inside or nearby. Its aims are simple:

  • Identify fire hazards.
  • Reduce the risks of those hazards causing harm to as low as reasonably practical.
  • Determine the physical precautions and management arrangements that are necessary to ensure the safety of people if a fire were to break out.

The Fire Risk Assessment is a significant responsibility of an employer, building owner, landlord, occupier, or anyone else responsible for the management of premises and as such it is strongly recommended to use an appropriate qualified fire risk assessment provider. The Fire Risk Assessment should also be reviewed regularly.

Every second counts in the early stages of a fire and with a properly prepared Fire Risk Assessment and appropriate early warning systems, it can save lives, property and its contents allowing your site to recover quickly and keep disruption to a minimum.
