What is a fire risk assessment?

The FRA 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:

  • The scale of the site
  • The use of the site
  • The vulnerability of those on the site
  • Measures taken to prevent fires
  • Measures taken to contain fires
  • The condition of fire-related equipment
  • Plans in the event of the fire

And various other aspects.

In doing so, the assessor is able to 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.

DO I NEED A FIRE RISK ASSESSMENT?

Under The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 all landlords have a legal obligation to ensure that their property, whether residential or commercial, 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 Occupation), the landlord is specifically obliged to possess an up-to-date fire risk assessment.

What we do?

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 of these assessments use the PAS-79 template, the most recognised form of assessment. This is classified as a model pro formula in England & Wales.

Once the assessment has been completed and reviewed, we will provide a detailed assessment report which identifies the solutions needed to reduce the risk of fire on the premises.

In doing so, the assessor is able to 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.
