Professional Fire Risk Assessment for Your Business

A fire risk assessment ensures that your building and those inside, stay safe.  We will look for fire hazards by reviewing the building's layout. We will also look at possible ignition sources like electrical items, heating, and kitchen appliances, and check for flammable materials. We will then assess how fire and smoke might spread by looking at the building's design and materials.

Next, we identify people at risk, considering the number and types of occupants, especially those who may need help during emergencies. We also check that fire detection and warning systems work well and have clear evacuation plans. Finally, we review overall fire safety, including training, firefighting equipment availability, and emergency procedures. This is an essential process for making sure places are secure and ready for any potential fire risks.

Ensuring You Comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005

In the UK, the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires responsible individuals, like employers, building owners, and landlords, to conduct a fire risk assessment. This is carried out to highlight and reduce fire risks on your premises. If you don't adhere to these rules, you can be severely penalised.

Fire risk assessments need to be regularly reviewed and updated, as they’re not fixed documents. Any changes to who is using the building, how it's structured, or what activities are taking place may require modifications to the assessment. It's extremely important for those in charge to be mindful and have their risk assessments adjusted as needed. Get in touch with RTJ today to discuss fire risk assessments in more detail.
