Fire Risk Assessments

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 places a legal duty on employers to make a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risks to which people in the premises may be exposed with regards to fire. Failure to comply with this order may result in prosecution.

Your insurance provider will assume you are compliant with the Fire Safety Order. Failure to comply will affect your insurance policy.

 

What is a fire risk assessment?

A fire risk assessment is a careful examination of what, in your work, could cause harm to people with respect to fire.

The purpose of a fire risk assessment is to identify any fire hazards and then aim to eliminate or reduce the associated risks.

Who must carry out a fire risk assessment?

If you are an employer, then you will have a duty under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 to carry out a fire risk assessment.  Please note that some domestic premises are also required to carry out a fire risk assessment such as HMOs and even blocks of flats.

If you are not sure if your premises requires a fire risk assessment, contact us now and one of our friendly advisers will be able to assist.

How often must a fire risk assessment be carried out?

 

A fire risk assessment must be carried out and then regularly reviewed.

This interval should normally not be longer than 12 months.

In addition the fire risk assessment should be reviewed if:

  • There is reason to suspect that it is no longer valid
  • If significant changes take place, such as an increase in the number of people in the building or changes to floor layouts.
