Fire Risk Assessments

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 or RRFSO places the responsibility for fire safety on the employer or ‘responsible person’ for the building or premises. Your business or organisation must have a fire risk assessment by law. Our Fire Risk Assessor has been certified as competent to carry out fire risk assessments for the purposes of life safety as is registered on the CFRAR Fire Risk Assessor Register by the Institute of Fire Safety Managers.  

The Law Applies to you if you are?

  • An employer or self-employed with business premises
  • Landlord responsible for business premises
  • Voluntary or charity organisation with employees/volunteers
  • A contractor with a degree of control over any premises
  • Educational buildings, schools & nurseries
  • Care homes, doctors & dentists
  • Hotels, B & B’s & holiday cottages
  • Residential property with any communal/shared area
  • Landlord of a house of multi occupancy  (HMO)

What is a Fire Risk Assessment?

A fire risk assessment is an assessment of your premises in terms of fire safety hazards to both people and property. You are required to produce a clear and concise assessment detailing a prioritised action plan showing exactly what fire risks have been identified and how to minimise them to provide a safer working environment.

Can I do the Risk Assessment?

You can, however, the law clearly states that fire risk assessments are to be carried out by a ‘competent person’. Producing a suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment can prove very daunting and very time consuming for an un-trained person and after all the effort involved, your assessment might not even meet the legal requirements. We know that in terms of fire insurance, loss adjusters are using the details of this clause to withhold payment (in the event of a fire) if they are not satisfied in regard to the compliance of in-house produced fire risk assessment reports
