What are Health and Safety
Fire Risk Assessments?
A fire risk assessment helps you to identify the potential risks on your premises.
It will also help you identify the measures you need to put in place and improve your fire safety precautions to keep people safe.
Why do you
A Fire Risk Assessment is a legal requirement. From 1st October 2006 The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires the Responsible Person (RP) of any non-domestic premises to carry out a fire risk assessment, including measures to reduce or eliminate the risk of fire, and identify persons at risk. Where there are 5 or more employees, a record must be kept of significant findings and a definition of a Responsible Person is contained in the above Order.
You also need to make sure you review your fire risk assessment regularly and whenever significant changes have been made that would have an impact on it. If there is a fire on your premises and you haven’t met your legal duties to keep people safe, you could be fined and may even be sent to prison.
We can complete a compliant Fire Risk Assessment on your premises to ensure a proactive approach to fire safety is adopted in your place of work.
The assessment will also be accompanied with a list of recommendations to achieve best practice. We complete this by using PAS 79, the recommended specification by the British Standard Institution.
Our fire risk assessment will Identify any possible fire hazards, identify people at risk, evaluate, remove or reduce the risks, record our findings, prepare an emergency plan and provide training.
We will also review and update the fire risk assessment on a regular basis.
