What is a Fire Risk Assessment?

A fire risk assessment is an organised and methodical look at your premises, personnel and the activities carried out. It also looks at the likelihood that a fire could breakout and cause serious damage to property and to the endangerment of life. An assessment will help identify the hazards within a property, to determine the best procedure and process of establishing the level of risk.

The fire risk assessment will:

  • Identify the hazard

  • Estimate the likelihood of any hazard occurring

  • Estimate the severity of the consequences

  • Access the risk

  • Make a judgement on any findings that require addressing

  • Decide on an appropriate course of action

  • Review   

Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, a fire risk assessment is necessary in just about all buildings within England and Wales, other than domestic dwellings.

The law applies to you if you are:

  • Small and medium places of assembly

  • Offices and shops

  • Factories and warehouses

  • Healthcare premises

  • Residential care premises

  • Sleeping accommodation

  • Animal premises and stables

  • Educational premises

  • Transport premises and facilities

  • Houses of multiple occupancy

  • Holiday lets
