FAQ's

Most Frequently Asked Questions

A Fire Risk Assessment is an evaluation conducted to identify potential fire hazards and assess the level of fire safety in a specific location, such as residential or business premises.

Broadly speaking, assessments are conducted in five key steps:

  1. Identify fire hazards.
  2. Identify people at risk.
  3. Evaluate, remove or reduce the risks.
  4. Record your findings, prepare an emergency plan and provide training.
  5. Review and update the fire risk assessment regularly

Following which, a report is produced which provides a detailed and comprehensive listing of fire risks which are easy to understand. An Action Plan should be included to assist you with the creation and implementation of a safety plan. The report will satisfy all regulatory requirements and will be accepted for any insurance purposes.

You need to have a Fire Risk Assessment as it is a legal requirement for all buildings. It is crucial as it helps identify potential fire hazards, implement preventive measures, and ensure the safety of occupants and property. It also ensures compliance with fire safety regulations.

The frequency of Fire Risk Assessments may vary depending on factors such as the type of property and its usage. It is generally recommended to review and update the assessment regularly or whenever significant changes occur.

Fire Risk Assessments should be carried out by competent individuals or fire safety professionals with relevant knowledge, experience, and understanding of fire safety regulations and best practices. They must be competent enough to complete a ‘suitable and sufficient’ assessment of that particular building. For large or complex buildings, it is almost certain that professional Fire Safety expertise will be required.

D-I-Y efforts or using inexperienced people is very unlikely to reach the required standard.

The legislation allows for the ‘responsible person’ to engage a suitable outside professional agency or person (such as Fire Risk Consultancy Services) to undertake the Fire Risk Assessment on your behalf and to prepare the necessary documentation to show that the business is compliant with fire safety regulations. If in doubt always ask for advice.

As the ‘responsible person’ you must carry out and regularly review the Fire Risk Assessment of the premises. This will identify what you need to do to prevent fire and keep people safe.
