Fire Risk Assessments

BakerLile Fire Risk Assessments

Without a fire risk assessment, how can we identify the specific risks and therefore determine the necessary action to take? Quite simply, we can’t. That is why the government has put fire risk assessments in the very heart of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order. Our team of fire risk assessors are fully competent to take on the “responsible persons” legal commitments.

The Types Of Surveys

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005

This regime of fire safety legislation came into force on 1st October 2006 and affects employers and those who are responsible for non-domestic, industrial, commercial and residential premises.

Self-employed people and the voluntary sector are also brought within this regime. 

The Order simplified, rationalised and consolidated fire safety legislation and it provides for a risk-based approach to fire safety, allowing more efficient and effective enforcement by the fire and rescue service.

At the heart of this legislation, is the need for the ‘responsible person’ for each premises to ensure a fire risk assessment is carried out by a competent person. This is an organised appraisal of your work activities and the workplace to enable you to identify potential fire hazards, and to decide who (including employees and visitors) might be in danger in the event of fire, and their location.

The competent person will then evaluate the risks arising from the hazards and decide whether the existing fire precautions are adequate, or whether more needs to be done. This risk assessment needs to be subject to regular review 

Use the fire risk assessment to identify:

  • Fire equipment needed to detect and fight the fire
  • Fire alarms needed to alert the occupants and the emergency services
  • Emergency lighting requirements
  • Signage requirements
  • Staff training needs
