Fire Risk Assessment

The purpose of a Fire Risk Assessment is to ensure that reasonable precautions have been taken to avoid the risk of fire occurring.  Current legislation required a Fire Risk Assessment to be carried out if more than five people are employed,  have the public visit your premises,  or the premises require a license to operate, or are the owner/manager or landlord of residential flats or a HMO with communal area.

To conduct the fire risk assessment, an assessor will visit your premises and carry out a thorough fire risk assessment. This will include the following:

  • Sources of ignition in the workplace
  • Sources of fuel
  • Sources of oxygen
  • People at risk
  • Procedures, training and recording
  • Fire detection and fire warning systems
  • Means of fighting the fire
  • Means of escape in the event of fire
  • Other factors

This information will be presented in a bound report with images to illustration points raised where necessary.
