If you cannot answer yes to each of these questions, then you may need our help.
Let us help you with your Fire Risk Assessment
Our Fire Risk Assessors have considerable experience of a broad range premises, including offices, shops, church halls, exhibition venues, social clubs, warehouses, industrial units, retail outlets, shopping centres, garages, workshops, care homes, academies, colleges, schools, blocks of flats and other residential accommodation.
In England and Wales, if you’re an employer, owner, landlord or occupier of business or other non-domestic premises, you’re responsible for fire safety and are known as the ‘responsible person’. As the responsible person, there are certain things you must do by law under the Fire Safety Order, which is enforced by your local Fire and Rescue service. The ‘responsible person’ must:
- carry out and regularly review a fire risk assessment
- tell staff and their representatives about the risks you’ve identified
- put in place, and maintain, adequate and appropriate fire safety measures
- plan for an emergency
- provide staff information, fire safety instruction, and training
Do you need help with your Fire Safety Risk Assessment?
We have an excellent team to assist you with Fire Safety, including carrying out your Fire Safety Risk Assessment (FSRA). They are a legal requirement and can help your business to identify (and overcome) possible dangers and risks. There are five steps to completing a Fire Risk Assessment:
- Identify fire hazards
- Identify people at risk
- Evaluate, remove or reduce, and protect from risk
- Record, plan, inform, instruct, and train
- Review the fire risk assessment regularly
Your Fire Safety Risk Assessments must be up to date. When visiting your premises, the Fire Officer will ask to see a copy of your Fire Risk Assessment. Failure to have a suitable, sufficient and up to date, Fire Safety Risk Assessment in place could result in enforcement action being taken against your company.
We can carry out Fire Risk Assessments for you – we work to the nationally recognised standard PAS79: 2012
Don’t fall foul of enforcement action
You need not get caught on the back foot by the Fire Officer – we can help you to take a proactive approach to fire safety. We will ensure that you have a Fire Risk Assessment in place and that you are keeping suitable and sufficient records to show that you are managing fire safety at your premises.
The Fire and Rescue services are visiting more organisations and checking their fire safety arrangements, particularly their fire risk assessment. Lack of a Fire Risk Assessment is leading to enforcement action.
Failure to address the basic responsibilities of completing fire risk assessments means that businesses are not only breaking the law but also failing to manage the hazards at their premises.
