Fire Risk Assessments

Every commercial property is required to have fire risk assessments carried out regularly to identify and address any potentially dangerous fire hazards. This legal requirement is essential to protect the safety of anyone that uses your building.

We offer fire risk assessments for a wide variety of buildings and situations, from temporary structures and construction sites, to some of the oldest and most used buildings in the UK.

Fire Risk Assessment Overview

From 1st October 2006 The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires the Responsible Person (RP) of any non-domestic premises to carry out a fire risk assessment, including measures to reduce or eliminate the risk of fire and identify persons at risk. Where there are 5 or more employees, a record must be kept of significant findings and a definition of a Responsible Person is contained in the above order.

Where the RP does not have control of all parts of the building and it is shared with other persons, they should be informed of significant risks identified. The person who does have control (landlord, owner, or other employer) has a responsibility to make sure the regulations are complied with in the parts they control. This may require communication and cooperation between parties to ensure coordination of fire safety provisions, fire fighting measures and evacuation procedures.

Carrying out a fire risk assessment at your property, we will...

  • Identify the fire hazards.
  • Identify people at risk.
  • Evaluate, remove or reduce the risks.
  • Record our findings, prepare an emergency plan and provide training.
