A Fire Risk Assessment consists of an assessor visiting the site and producing a report on the likelihood of a fire occurring and the potential threat posed in the event of a fire.
This is done by inspecting your building against the relevant regulations, including:
In doing so, the assessor can produce a standardised risk rating for the site and describe what actions should be taken to reduce this risk to an acceptable, legally compliant level, whether through management or physical changes to the site.
Under The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, all landlords have a legal obligation to ensure that their residential or commercial property is safe from fire. Regular fire risk assessments are essential to achieving legal compliance in fire safety.
Such an assessment will enable you to determine the chance of a fire starting on your property and the dangers to those in the immediate vicinity.
In the case of HMOs (Houses in Multiple Occupations), the landlord must possess an up-to-date fire risk assessment.
Few companies have personnel with the skills necessary to be considered a ‘competent’ fire risk assessor. Our services allow you to outsource this task to one of our specially trained assessors instead.
Each assessment uses the PAS-79 template, the most recognised assessment form. This is classified as a model pro formula in England & Wales.
Once the assessment has been completed and reviewed, we will provide a detailed report that identifies the solutions needed to reduce the fire risk on the premises.
Our Fire Risk Assessments will help to ensure you and your business are correctly protected and remain compliant with current fire safety regulations.
