Fire Risk Assessments

Our Fire Risk Assessments are designed to identify potential risks in your premises and to help create an efficient evacuation process in the event of a fire, which can greatly improve the safety of your workplace.

Your company must undertake a Fire Risk Assessment to ensure your premises complies with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 legislation. This applies to buildings that have more than 5 members of staff on site.

Our records will also help to prove you have acted in accordance with the law should an unfortunate fire event occur at your workplace.

All our assessor are fully qualified for the job and will do everything they can to help improve the fire safety on your premises, minimizing the risk of potential fires.

What does the assessment include?

Our fire risk assessment includes a visit to your site by our fully qualified fire risk assessor who will conduct a full non-destructive site survey of the building that is under your responsibility.

We look to identify:

  • Who is at risk
  • Process and/or building hazards
  • Potential ignition sources
  • Any deficiencies in existing fire precautions/procedures,
  • Correct type(s) / quantities and suitably maintained fire safety equipment
  • Appropriate fire training and drills
  • Appropriate signs/notices
  • Suitable means for detecting fire and raising the alarm if a fire were to occur, and
  • Adequate means of escape in the event of a fire

Following the site survey (fire risk assessment) of the Building(s) or area of responsibility, a fire safety management plan would be produced and issued to the responsible person(s) (emailed PDF)

Our fire safety management document includes:

  • Documented fire risk assessment (Format British Standard – PAS 79:2012 Fire Risk Assessment),
  • List of significant findings,
  • Recommendations on all remedial action(s), where required,
