The LAW

Regulatory Reform Order 2005

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 was introduced in October 2006. Fire and rescue authorities and other bodies ('enforcing authorities') have a duty to enforce fire safety in non-domestic premises.

Article 9 Fire Risk Assessment (FRA)

The purpose of the FRA, is to reduce the risk of fire, identify the people at risk and the general fire precautions required to keep people safe e.g. 'Relevant Persons'.

Can I do my own Fire Risk Assessment?

YES.

But it is almost certain that professional Fire Safety expertise will be required - DIY efforts or using inexperienced people is UNLIKELY to reach the required standard.

Why do I need a Fire Risk Assessment?

Here are the reasons why you need to choose us for your Fire Risk Assessment:

  • You are not in possession of a Fire Risk Assessment
  • You are unsure if you comply with the Fire Regulations
  • You feel a previous Fire Risk Assessment may be inadequate

  • You want to enter on to the Fire Compliance Scheme

The Assessment process

  • Our Accredited Fire Risk Assessor will visit your building (or perform a remote assessment).
  • Our Fire Risk Assessor will complete a report about all matters relating to fire safety
  • The report will highlight:
    - areas that are satisfactory
    - areas that require attention
    - areas that do not comply with the Fire Regulations
  • We will discuss your Fire Risk Assessment report with you and plan a course of action, plus we will provide access to your online report in our secure portal.

What do we assess?

People

Who and why they could be at Risk

Hazards

We will identify any potential issues

Risk

We assess the overall Risk

How long will it take?

Depending on the size of the property and the number of areas to be inspected we estimate a small building to be less than 1/2 a day.

If we find issues...

If there are any problems identified with the risk assessment we carry out, we are able to fix them and recommend a plan of action to resolve those issues.

How long is it valid?

Usually 12 months.

Pre-visit requests

Depending on the building type, we will advise you well in advance of our requirements, i.e. it could be to provide your fire drill records, otherwise we can go about our business unsupported.

How we can help you, as an employer, to ensure you are compliant with the law?

We are an Accredited company carrying out over 5000 Fire Risk Assessments each year. We have a program called the Fire Compliance Scheme which provides the building blocks to sustainable, year on year, compliance.
