Mr Fire Safety Ltd
Fire Risk Assessment
Fire Risk Assessment
In England and Wales, if you’re an employer, owner, landlord or occupier of a business or other non-domestic premises, you are responsible for fire safety and are considered to be the ‘responsible person’. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 details what you have to do to comply with the law. The main thing is that you must carry out, or arrange for someone with sufficient knowledge and experience to carry out a fire risk assessment. If your business employs five or more people or has a licence you must keep a formal record of any significant findings and remedial measures which have, or may need to be, taken.
Carrying out a fire risk assessment involves a physical inspection of your building to determine the adequacy of the existing fire precautions and the need for any additional control measures. Of equal importance is a review of fire safety management in the organisation and consideration of the human factors – how people will respond in an emergency and whether they will take appropriate action.
In the case of a fire risk assessment satisfying the requirements of legislation, the objective of the risk assessment will primarily be the safety of the occupants of the building.
Our consultants cover the whole of the UK and have many years of experience working as professional fire safety officers in a local authority Fire & Rescue Service. In their roles they were responsible for auditing the assessments provided by businesses across all sectors. Each has attained at least Graduate status in Fire Engineering and this is supplemented by HNC/HND in Fire Safety Studies. All of our fire risk assessors has at least three years’ commercial experience conducting fire risk assessments bringing their previous experience to bear, whilst always considering the “reasonableness” of fire safety solutions.
Our fire risk assessments stand scrutiny by fire authority auditors, and where necessary we will engage directly with them on your behalf.
