The Legislation

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and in Scotland The Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 and the associated Fire Safety Scotland Regulations 2006 are important pieces of legislation. They place the responsibility for fire safety on the Employer, Manager or Owner so you must comply.

The legislation also stipulates that it is a legal requirement for the majority of UK businesses to undertake a fire risk assessment. This will identify fire hazards and people at risk so actions can be taken.

It is the Responsible Person’s duty to ensure the fire risk assessment is carried out by a “Competent Person”. This is defined as someone who has had sufficient training and has good experience or knowledge of fire safety.

What Is a Post Lockdown Fire Risk Assessment?

A Fire Risk Assessment follows a 5-step process.  This allows us to make a full and thorough evaluation on how to protect you and your staff from the danger of fire.

We undertake a thorough assessment of your premises and procedures so we can produce a thorough report.

  • Identify people at risk from fire, including employees and visitors.
  • Identify fire hazards within your premises including possible sources of ignition.
  • Evaluate the risks and assess existing fire safety measures on your premises.
  • Record the Fire Risk Assessment information as these findings must be recorded, by law, in certain circumstances.
  • Review the Fire Risk Assessment at regular intervals.
