Risk Assessments

When does my premises need a Fire Risk Assessment?

Fire Risk Assessments are prepared based on the requirements of Article 9 of statute law in the form of The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

 

This legislation covers commercial premises in England and Wales, whereas Scotland has the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005, supported by the Fire Safety (Scotland) Regulations 2006.

Our Approach

The methodology of our assessments follow the five step process that is well established across the UK for risk assessments.

Step 1

Identification of persons who are at risk

Step 2

Identification of fire hazards: combustibles, ignition sources and unsafe acts

Step 3

Evaluate the manner by which hazards have been or are being removed or reduced

Step 4

Identification of unsafe conditions or areas of improvement

Step 5

Recording any additional arrangements in place for fire safety and evactuation

Our Report

Our report will provide an in depth overview and guidance for emergency planning, with a prioritized action list of those actions required or needing consideration for compliance. It will address passive and active measures and any fire safety training requirements, while exploring the suitable timings, monitoring and review of the assessment.

The report will be split into three section and colour coded sections for ease.

  • Black - Explanations and guidance

  • Blue - Our observations and comments

  • Red - Actions

The report will also contain further ABC categories for prioritising, with A being the most urgent and highest priority. Easy for clients to understand and action.
