Why Are Fire Risk Assessments Required?

Fire risk assessments are ultimately the responsibility of the property owner. Property owners must carry out and regularly review fire risk assessments of the premises to help identify potential hazards and implement what needs to be done in order to keep people safe.

Within a fire risk assessment, there are multiple avenues and elements to be considered including emergency routes and exits, implementing an emergency fire evacuation plan and providing information to employees and other people on the premises.

Undertaking annual fire risk assessments is worth much more than just a box ticking procedure. Risk assessments drastically minimise the possibility of buildings being exposed to unnecessary fire risk that can result in the loss of life.

How Can Business Safety Solutions Help?

Business Safety Solutions are fully equipped and qualified to undertake fire risk assessments for all residential and commercial property owners. It is by law that all business premises and every block of flats must have a fire risk assessment in place and signed off.

Business Safety Solutions are able to provide annual assessments following the initial assessment but if anything changes beforehand such as the fabric of the building or nature of occupants, we would need to be notified immediately.

While every property and assessment will be different, the assessors will check main fire risk and fire prevention factors including electrical equipment on-site, smoking areas and current measures in place to limit fire spread.

A fire risk assessment is a methodical and organised procedure for assessing the potential for fire hazards in a your building or other locations. Furthermore, they identify people who may be at risk, and putting appropriate precautions in place to lessen or eliminate such risks.

Fire Risk Assessments are crucial because they assist in locating potential fire dangers, estimating the degree of risk, and putting in place the necessary fire safety precautions. They are necessary to safeguard lives, avoid property damage, and maintain legal compliance. It is important to measure the potential risks against co-workers and employees as their safety is imperative and one of our primary concerns. Every property and assessment will be unique, and our assessors will look at the primary sources of fire risk and fire protection, such as any on-site electrical equipment, smoking places, and current  systems.

In order to keep fire risk assessments up to date and regular, they should be reviewed frequently. How frequently they are reviewed may depend on factors such as changes in personnel, modifications to the building, occupancy, activities, and applicable requirements. Reviews are typically done once a year, although severe changes can necessitate an emergency re-evaluation. You must take the necessary precautions and make sure that your fire risk assessments are consistent and up to date because some dangers can slowly materialise over time.

For all businesses with over five employees, fire risk assessments are a legally obligation. It’s crucial to review local fire safety legislation to decide whether you need to review or conduct an additional fire risk assessment because the particular legal requirements may change. 

It is advised that to ensure a complete compliance with rules, particularly for complicated or high-risk premises, to hire a qualified fire safety professional.  For all different kinds of businesses and landlords, Business Safety Solutions is able to offer fire risk assessments. We have the ability to visit your location at a time and on a date that is best for you.

After a fire risk assessment is conducted by Business Safety Solutions, all findings will be recorded in a report. An action plan, recommended control measures, assessed risks, and identified hazards will all be included in this report. The accountable party should subsequently put the required fire safety measures into place and periodically review and upgrade them as necessary.

Serious repercussions may result from failing to undertake a fire risk assessment or from failing to put appropriate fire safety measures in place. These may consist of monetary fines, legal repercussions, invalidated insurance policies, elevated risks to life and property, and potential accountability for harm or loss of life brought on by a fire.
