FIRE RISK ASSESSMENT
What is a fire risk assessment?A fire risk assessment is a structured and systematic look at your premises and the activities carried out there. It assesses the likelihood of a fire starting, the potential cause of that fire and the resulting harm that could come to those in and around the location. Property owners must ensure they are compliant the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. A fire risk assessment is a great way to ensure this is the case.
Why is it needed?
You are legally required to have a valid assessment to minimise the risk from fire if you are:
- Responsible for a business premises, blocks of flats or a house of multiple occupation (HMO)
- In a licensed property
- An employer
- A charity
- A contractor with control over premises
What happens during the assessment?
Our fire risk assessor will meet the responsible person on site (if available) who can take responsibility for the visit and who knows the layout, access points and normal daily function of the premises.
The assessor will talk through the relevant aspects of their visit and request available information sources open to the responsible person. These may include emergency procedures and safety records, along with insurance and special requirements for the safe running of the premises.
At the end of the visit, the assessor will discuss any areas of non-compliance or that need improvement with the responsible person.
