Fire Risk Assessments

Why do we need a Fire Risk Assessment?

Fire Safety Law changed in October 2006 with the introduction of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. This new legislation placed an emphasis on risk assessment; it is a requirement of the Fire Safety Order that all ‘responsible persons’ carry out a fire risk assessment of their premises in order to ensure the safety of all employees and other ‘relevant persons’.

The risk of fire is an ever-present hazard in all premises. Therefore as an occupier/employer you need to understand the scale of the risk and the potential consequences if a fire were to develop. A fire risk assessment, apart from meeting legislative requirements, can offset more onerous prescriptive fire safety requirements by quantative and qualitative assessment. Building owners and operators have responsibility for the safety of the occupants of their buildings.
