Comprehensive Fire Risk Assessment Reports

The assessment will get straight to the point with what is actually being assessed, rather than pages of preamble about the legislation, its history and what it means. We reflect what is actually applicable to you the customer within the report in the relevant areas.

The template a comprehensive document consisting of clear and concise information about the level of compliance with clear actions linked to that report section, so you as the reader can clearly associate that action with the notes provided by the assessor without having to flick between other areas of the report.

Each question section of the report will always be provided with photographic evidence of exactly what the Eyton Solutions assessor is commenting on so the advice or demonstration of compliance is clear, with crucial benchmarking of all findings in accordance with recognised British and UK government standards. A summary of the findings and overall risk rating will be given as per PAS 79.

Risk Reduction Plans

Actions are also presented as a separate Excel spreadsheet to allow the reader to get straight to the point with the actions without consistently having to scroll through the report. The actions will detail the clause where they are raised within the original report with a clear definition of priority for the actions to be carried out by the Responsible Person.

Long Term Efficiency and Cost Effective Reviews

We offer an FRA program that not only meets compliance but doesn’t rehash the same issues or drip feed new problems (through assessment speed) year after year at the same annual cost. We at Eyton Solutions believe that conducting the same full fire risk assessment annually is not an efficient use of the Responsible Persons or our time, often leading to the same actions being generated and costing more money in the long run. This, we believe, is a false economy with false assurance.

We instead offer a different approach year on year in a simpler fire risk assessment review after the full FRA has been carried out, at a reduced cost compared to a full fire assessment. This is aimed solely at determining whether the ‘current live’ FRA that Eyton has conducted remains valid/relevant in its findings. Rome wasn’t built in a day and we accept that often, even more so with the cost of living, actions may take time to complete, potentially spanning across years.

Our reviews look to demonstrate progress of the Responsible Person through the existing actions, not berate them for every repeat action raised in previous assessments. This then leaves a positive demonstration on the fire safety of an organisation rather than negatively impacting them. Our reviews can also assist the Responsible Person in prioritising their actions year after year and ensure they do not feel abandoned by the assessor after the assessment has been complete.

Detailed Assessment Reports

Our assessments are life safety assessments, and so will focus on the protection of life over property. However, often both can go hand in hand. We set out to look at the following sections of all buildings within our assessments which are;

  • Hazards of Fire and Mitigation Measures: Detailing the hazards associated with fire and the measures taken to mitigate these risks.
  • People at Risk: Specifically focusing on the residents or occupants of the building, assessing how they are at risk from fire, and identifying measures to overcome these challenges.
  • Systems and Equipment: Examining the active systems installed within the building, comparing them with relevant standards and identified risks to determine compliance.
  • Means of Escape: Reviewing the facilities and premises design provided for escape in the event of a fire, and making recommendations to address any concerns.
  • Passive Fire Control: Observing the physical compartmentation and fire stopping in buildings to ensure that the building’s behavior during a fire is as expected or designed.
  • External Risks: Considering the external façade of the premises and determining if a specialist examination is required.
  • Policy Procedures and Maintenance Control Measures: Ensuring that appropriate building user controls are in place to mitigate fire risks and development, as well as evaluating the effectiveness of policy implementation and levels of organisational competency.

We will also look at the effectiveness of policy implementation and levels of organisational competency.

FAQs

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.
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
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.
Most insurance companies will require you to have a fire risk assessment in place before they provide cover.
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.
