We offer professional fire risk assessments by fully qualified fire risk assessors who will carry out a thorough fire risk assessment for you at your premises. Having in-depth knowledge of fire risks will enable the assessor to identify any hard to spot fire safety risks within your premises. They will conclude the assessment with a full report and give you clear indications where any areas of improvement are required. Ensuring a fire risk assessment is carried out is a legal obligation under The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
For businesses and organisations who feel they have enough knowledge to carry out their own fire risk assessment, there are free downloadable fire risk assessment templates available to assist you. Please note that you are accepting full responsibilities for the correctness of your fire risk assessment if you are using the forms provided.
Since the introduction of Fire Risk Assessments in 2005 businesses, organisations and landlords have to carry out Fire Risk Assessments. The responsibility for fire safety now lies fully with the 'responsible person', usually the owner of a business or person in charge of an organisation. The government has provided free downloadable guides for different industries and building types. These guides help the responsible person to fulfill their responsibilities and recommend minimum standards in terms of fire safety products installed. Businesses are given a great deal more freedom in deciding their best fire safety provisions but should something go wrong or if the risk assessment is only done superficially, there are heavy fines for the responsible person. Businesses with more complex buildings and processes should consider using an external fire risk assessor.
However, to help you with your fire risk assessments, we have created a fire risk assessment form which can be downloaded for free.
