Fire Risk Assessment, Management & Training

Fire Risk Assessment

Fire Risk Assessments and Fire Safety Training delivered by a competent and qualified Assessor

If someone is injured in a fire in your premises, just ask yourself, “Where would that leave me?”   In these litigious days, it is not worth leaving yourself exposed to blame or liability.

The first step to reducing fire hazards to a reasonable level – and complying with current legal requirements – is a Fire Risk Assessment.

“What do I get for my money?

Your Fire Risk Assessment will address:

(i) Management of fire safety in your premises;
(ii) Sources of ignition and the potential for fire spread;
(iii) The fire precautions in your premises;
(iv) Maintenance of fire precautions in your premises;
(v) Additionally, goodwill observations that may arise in respect of property protection: issues where the property can be better protected from fire, not necessarily to reduce a significant risk to persons in the premises.

Enquiry

To achieve compliance with the Regulatory Reform, (Fire Safety Order) 2005, your Fire Risk Assessment will include a Fire Safety Audit and an Action Plan. Where necessary an Emergency Plan will be provided. For residential blocks an appropriate letter to tenants regarding fire safety and a suitably worded Fire Action Notice will be provided if required. We will even throw in a log book, to record checks and tests of the fire precautions, should you need one.

If you do not have one, we will also include assistance with preparing a Fire Safety Policy.

We cover both residential and commercial premises.

 

“Is the Risk Assessor qualified?”

BILL ARMSTRONG, FIRE RISK ASSESSOR

Bill Armstrong is a competent Fire Risk Assessor having completed several thousand assessments since leaving the Fire Service having completed 30 years service at the end of 2000. He was a Fire Safety Officer for the last 13 years of his service.

The aim of the assessment is to point out any significant fire hazard to persons in your premises, in a supportive way as opposed to any sort of big stick approach. Completion of the assessment should mean that you are covered against blame in the event that a fire occurs or a fire incident causes an injury.

The law says that you must have a written Fire Risk Assessment in place if you employ more than 4 persons; if you need a licence for the activities carried on in your premises; or if the Fire Authority has served a notice on your premises.
