Risk Assessment

Fire Risk Assessment

In order to make sure that all your premises are always compliant with fire safety regulation and to keep workplace health & safety at a high standard, a fire risk assessment must always be up to date especially if any major changes occur in regards to the premises.

A regular fire risk assessment is a requirement under law.

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.’

Some business environments are more dynamic than others and essentially require a professional assessor to regularly carry out a fire risk assessment – which is a costly service. However other environments still require annual monitoring, and this can be done by the responsible person between professional assessments; and the right risk assessment software allows this to be done thoroughly, and time & cost efficiently.


Risk Assessment Software

Smartlog is cloud-based compliance management software for all sizes and types of organisations that seek to simplify and centralise their fire and health & safety compliance. To summarise: Smartlog makes self-conducted risk assessments more straightforward, clearer and a much quicker task.

Alongside a host of comprehensive features, Smartlog contains interactive risk assessment templates, relevant legislation (for enhanced user clarification in relation to legislature and recommended procedure), and allows the instant monitoring and reporting of a completed assessment.

Another advantage of utilising online risk assessment software such as Smartlog is the ability to make report findings readily (and securely) accessible to relevant parties at the press of a button without printing, posting or hand-delivering physical documents.

And when outstanding issues have been addressed, the assessor can update the details in the assessment, attach any supporting evidence of the change in circumstances, along with sufficiently detailed feedback of any undertaken revisions or work.

Our fire and health & safety consultants exclusively use Smartlog when conducting risk assessments, and any work (maintenance, servicing etc.) undertaken for clients is logged on their Smartlog account.

Because of our hands on experience and knowledge, as a Smartlog client, Safesmart will provide telephone and online support to you and your staff members whenever it is needed – at no additional cost. We will also try to ensure that you have all the support and information you need to make sure that everything compliance-related which needs doing is being completed in a timely fashion.
