Fire Assessments

On the 1st April 2006 the Regulatory reform (Fire and Safety) order came into force. There is now a legal requirement for all non-domestic premises to conduct a fire risk assessment.

It is important to understand that a fire risk assessment is not the same as a fire certificate. Every business owner and employer must be able to demonstrate the following:

  • All fire risks have been assessed and the results recorded with written fire risk assessments.
  • Records to show that firefighting equipment has been provided, properly maintained and regularly inspected.
  • An Emergency Action Plan has been written, confirmed and published.
  • Staff have received fire training in the use of equipment & procedures in the event of fire.
  • There are adequate means of fire detection, warning systems and means of escape in place to allow people to leave the building safely.
  • Action plans have been formulated and signed off to indicate proposed completion dates and actual completion dates.
