Risk Assessments

We recognise that it is a conflict of interest as a fire protection company to carry out risk assessments, specify work and also quote for work. Therefore we prefer not to carry out risk assessments; however, we can recommend industry professionals who are extremely capable of performing and completing risk assessments for all types of premises.

Fire Risk assessments help identify the risk of fire. It is the responsibility of the ‘responsible person’ to ensure that this is completed and the findings are evaluated, actioned and followed up on. Virtually all premises require a risk assessment (including all building structures, homes in multiple occupancy and open spaces but excluding private domestic residences).

To ensure you are compliant with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 your fire risk assessment must be a written document and specific areas must be identified such as:

  • Measures to reduce the risk of fire on the premises and the risk of fire spreading within the premises and the surrounding area.
  • An escape route which should have the appropriate fire safety signage in the building and to ensure that this means of escape in the event of an emergency can be effectively used.
  • Measures for securing that all materials are properly stowed and any inflammable liquids or gases are kept in a fire proof cabinet or outside and away from the buildings.
  • The means to fight fire on the premises and ensure appropriate training for the use of fire extinguishers has been carried out.
  • Measures in place to detect fire on the premises and give sufficient warning in case of fire. Information is always available for this by contacting your local fire brigade for advice.
  • Identify what action is to be taken in the event of fire on the premises, including instructions and training of all personnel.
