Fire Risk Assessment FAQs
What Is a Fire Risk Assessment?
A fire risk assessment is an evaluation of the fire hazards in your premises and the steps you need to take to safeguard against them.
It is a legal requirement for all businesses in the UK, and it should be conducted by a qualified assessor.
By law (Article 9 of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005), a suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment must be carried out in every building in England and Wales unless it is a domestic dwelling.
How Often Should I Conduct a Fire Safety Risk Assessment?
The frequency of fire risk assessments will depend on the specific risks in your premises and the advice of your assessor.
If there are significant changes to your premises or your business operation, you should consider conducting a new assessment. This could include changes to the layout of the building, the introduction of new equipment or materials, or an increase in the number of people working in the premises.
You should also review your assessment regularly to ensure that it remains up-to-date and relevant.
How Much Does a Fire Risk Assessment Cost?
The cost of a fire risk assessment will vary depending on the size and complexity of your premises. Contact us today for a free quote.
What Are the Penalties for Not Conducting a Fire Risk Assessment?
If a fire occurs without a valid fire risk assessment in place, then the responsible person may be liable for prosecution. In the event of a fire, the responsible person may also be liable for any damages or injuries that occur.
What Does the Fire Risk Assessment Process Involve?
The fire risk assessment process will vary depending on the size and complexity of your premises. However, as stated in the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, a fire risk assessment must consider the following five key components:
Identify the fire hazards
Identify people at risk
Evaluate, remove or reduce the risks
Record your findings
Review and update the assessment regularly
Will My Insurance Company Require a Fire Risk Assessment?
Most insurance companies will require you to have a fire risk assessment in place before they provide cover.
Do I Need to Hire a Qualified Fire Risk Assessor?
There is no legal requirement to hire a professional assessor, but it is strongly recommended. Conducting a fire risk assessment can be complex and time-consuming, so it is best left to the experts.
A professional assessor will have the expertise and experience to identify all the potential fire hazards in your premises and suggest the most appropriate control measures. They will also be able to advise you on your legal obligations.
At Eyton Solutions, all our fire risk assessors are qualified and experienced professionals who will be able to carry out a thorough assessment of your premises.
