Fire Risk Assessment Services

Do you need help to complete your Fire Risk Assessment?

Article 9 (1) of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states that:

‘The responsible person must make a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risks to which relevant persons are exposed for the purpose of identifying the general fire precautions he needs to take to comply with the requirements and prohibitions imposed on him by or under this Order.’

Article 9 (3) says that any such fire risk assessment must be reviewed by the responsible person regularly in order to keep the fire risk assessment up to date. Particularly if:

‘(a) There is reason to suspect that it is no longer valid; or (b) There has been a significant change in the matters to which it relates including when the premises, special, technical and organisational measures, or organisation of the work undergo significant changes, extensions, or conversions.’

What Happens During Your Fire Risk Assessment?

The purpose of a Fire Risk Assessment is to prevent fire in the workplace by identifying fire hazards and the people at risk, and to remove or reduce (to as low as is reasonably practicable) the risk of those hazards causing harm.

Your FRA should identify: What could cause a fire to start, and The people who may be at risk.

The findings should:

  • Evaluate, remove or reduce the probability of a fire starting,
  • Ensure that occupants can evacuate safely, and
  • Limit the effects should a fire occur.

The following will be reviewed during your Fire Risk Assessment:

  • Previous Fire Risk Assessment(s)
  • Portable appliances (PAT)
  • Emergency lights, firefighting equipment, fire alarm system, fire doors, and any other fire related equipment (eg. smoke vents or hose reels)
  • Emergency plan (for both evacuation and lockdown)
  • COSHH lists (particularly flammable, oxidising or explosive chemicals)
  • Asbestos register
  • Full health and safety policy document

What Should You Consider?

Things to consider when conducting your own fire risk assessment:

  • Are all the combustible materials, flammable liquids and gases stored safely?

  • Is the use of electrical extension leads and multi-point adaptors kept to a minimum?
  • Is there an adequate fire alarm system?
