Fire Risk Assessment

Fire Risk Assessments

fire risk assessment fire alarm leedsIt is a legal requirement for all UK businesses to carry out a fire risk assessment. Where a business employs five or more people then this must be a documented risk assessment.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) order came into place on October 1st 2006 and it replaced many previous fire-safety acts. One of the major features of the new legislation is the emphasis on the ‘Responsible Person’ within an organisation and if you are a business owner or director then you can be assured this title is describing you.

It is true that you can appoint ‘competent persons’ to help you in your role and they too would then have a degree of responsibility but the owner ultimately carries the can.

It is perfectly acceptable to carry out your own risk assessments however if you are not confident to do so or don’t want the responsibility then we are here to help.

All fire risk assessments are bespoke but a phone call to discuss a few details about your business (e.g. size, processes, staff etc.) is enough to allow us to provide a competitive quotation.

One of the most common faults mentioned in legal proceedings are that of ‘an insufficient fire risk assessment.’ Are you sure your knowledge would produce a sufficient fire risk assessment?
