Fire Risk Assessments in Churches
Church buildings require fire risk assessment to highlight potential fire safety
and to ensure congregations are safe. The fire risk assessment (FRA) can be carried
out by the church warden or other church members, as long as they have received
some basic fire risk assessment training. Knowing the steps involved in a fire
risk assessment helps to decide whether you can accomplish
the FRA yourself or whether it is time to seek
Safelincs has created a series of guidance videos to help you should you carry
out the FRA yourself.
