Fire Risk Assessment

Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, all employers (and/or building owners or occupiers) must carry out a Fire Risk Assessment, and like other risk assessment, they must keep review and update on a regular basis. The process of the FRA is the same as that of a health and safety risk assessment and can be carried out either as part of an overall premises risk assessment or as a separate exercise.

Based on the findings of the assessment, employers are required to ensure that adequate and appropriate fire safety measures are in place to minimise the risk of injury or loss of life in the event of a fire.

To help prevent fire in the workplace, the risk assessment should identify potential causes of a fire starting i.e. sources of ignition (heat or sparks) and substances that burn, and the people who may be at risk.

Once the assessment has been completed and the risks have been identified, Compass Safety Ltd will work with you to advise and guide on the appropriate actions to take to control the risks or, ideally avoid them completely.
