It is mandatory that you comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 if you meet any of the following criteria, in which case a written Fire Risk Assessment is legally required to ensure compliance.
Authorities have a right to request to see your fire risk assessment when they visit your facility. If you have a fire, or a visit from a fire officer, it’s likely to be the first document that the fire service will ask to see when they arrive onsite, as it will give them an immediate summary of the risks and control measure present on your facility.
Therefore, the Fire Risk Assessment is one of the first fire safety measures you should conduct and will act as an action plan for any further steps you may need to take.
Your Fire Risk Assessment is the document that summarises all of the key points of fire safety risk, prevention and strategy onsite. Our professional fire risk assessors have decades of practical fire safety experience behind them and will be able to provide you with a risk assessment that is popular for several reasons.
The Fire Risk Assessment should be reviewed annually. In this review you should ensure that the issues raised in previous assessments have been addressed, have not reoccurred and that no further issues have arisen.
However, if any of the following have occurred, your Fire Risk Assessment should be assessed sooner.
Remember that the fire risk assessment is always a ‘live’ document. Although you should officially review it annually, you should stay vigilant and proactive at all times to minimise the risk of fire onsite. If you spot any deficiency, remember to record it and create an action plan to resolve or minimise the issue.
