Having a robust Fire Risk Assessment in your business premises, not only is a legal requirement, but essentially ensures there is a process of what to do in the event of a fire, which then should be cascades to the employees of the business. It’s a document which should be reviewed at least on an annual basis- more frequently if significant changes occur in the workplace.
We have Assessors who either are current serving or have previously held roles such as Fire Inspectors, so essentially there is no one better placed to provide the Fire Risk Assessments along with fire and explosion risk assessments as they have the skills, knowledge and experience to be able to deal with any type of business. We can show you an example of a completed fire risk assessment if required.
The purpose of a Fire Risk Assessment is to identify key issues within a business premises which need addressing in order to reduce the risk of Fire. It should identify the hazards and risks in question, the people at risk and the ways to reduce the risk of Fire. We can advise you of the fire risk assessment requirements in the UK.
Fire Risk Assessments are required by law for virtually every premises, with the exemption of single domestic dwellings. The Regulatory Reform Order (2005) determines the need for a robust Fire Risk Assessment to be carried out by a suitably qualified/experienced person.
