Fire Risk Assessments

As an employer or building owner/occupier you are required to carry out and maintain a fire safety risk assessment.

This is under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, which applies in England and Wales, and under Part 3 of the Fire (Scotland) Act. The fire safety assessment can be carried out either as a separate exercise or as part of a Asbestos Management Survey.

What is a Fire Risk Assessment?

Fire Risk Assessments ensure that you meet your legal obligations imposed by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. Our assessor will make a suitable and sufficient assessment of the fire risk to identify the general fire precautions necessary to protect all building occupants and reduce the instances of fire occurring.

On completion we will provide you with a comprehensive document called a Fire Safety Management Plan, a cost effective fire risk assessment. The assessment will not only identify and reduce the risk of fire occurring and ensure compliance with the Law, but will also ensure that you have appropriate precautions and safeguards in place to protect your staff and visitors.

Regulations

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 consolidates more than 70 separate pieces of Fire Safety Legislation and finally simplifies the law for everybody within a property.

From October 1st 2006 the responsibility for fire safety lays with employers, self-employed with premises, voluntary organisations, those responsible for buildings with public access and any contractor who exercises a degree of control over any premises.
