Welcome to T2 Fire Risk Assessors UK Ltd - We are an independent fire safety company offering current best practice advice and guidance to industry in accordance with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRFSO) which is the principal legislation that governs fire safety in the UK.
All our assessors are NEBOSH Certified & members of the institution of fire engineers.
Then you require a suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 is now 11 years old. There is no excuse for employers, managers and/or people in positions of responsibility not to be aware of their roles and responsibilities in line with this legislation.
Most businesses and organisations will have carried out some sort of fire risk assessment, or even sourced a third party provider to conduct this on their behalf, but these are still not always reviewed at regular intervals which is outlined in the RRFSO.
The Order states that a fire risk assessment should be carried out at regular intervals – of which annually is a great start point – or when significant structural work is carried out, renovations occur, or if there are major changes within the workforce.
Usually only communal areas will require a risk assessment, our assessors aim to be with you within the same day or following working day. Reports can be to you within 24 hours of the assessment if required. Keys can be picked up from a specific location/agents to suit your needs.
Fire Risk Assessment starts with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order of 2005. This means fire certificates are no longer issued. Instead, the role falls on a “responsible person” who is in charge to take appropriate action to prevent fires and protect the building’s occupants in case of a fire.
All fire risk assessments start with a full review and inspection of your premises and building. Regardless of a pre-existing assessment in place or not, there is always a need for a newer assessment by a certified fire risk assessor. Periodic review and evaluation is paramount to changes that may occur. These may include changes in the building structure, changes in the personnel and other factors that may require a new fire risk assessment. If your organization or business has more than five employees, documentation is required.
Who can qualify as a responsible person? Anyone can qualify for the role as a responsible person. This person will make provisions for fire assessment risk of employees, visitors and relevant persons – to include all paid and unpaid staff plus temporary employees.
If the company or organization has over five employees, documentation is required of the responsible person. This means that person is also responsible for following the law and can be prosecuted for failure to follow the law.
How often do you need to perform a fire risk assessment? There are any number of factors that can quantify and qualify a need for an assessment. It can be a change in personnel, moving to a new building, a change in operating structure or any other reason. Even performing a fire risk assessment on a schedule can be a good idea just to maintain the standards and safety protocols.
Regardless, you can contact us today for assistance with a risk assessment.
I worked with the assessors when they did the Fire Risk Assessments for my company, the largest UK car park provider. They completed approx. 200 assessments for us and I really appreciated that they sat down beforehand to go through our procedures and standards so that they knew what to expect when they was on site. The assessors then made a point of calling me from site when they found any potentially serious issues instead of waiting until I receive the written report.
Whilst on site, they had advised us on changes we are planning, to support our discussions with Landlords and Fire Authorities, which has been invaluable. I also received a lot of positive feedback from our site managers who accompanied the assessor's during their assessments saying they found it very educational.
I know from the assessors experience of fire in their career that they are passionately committed to preventing injury and death from this hazard and they will be my first point of contact if I require any future fire advice.
We contacted T2 Fire for an onsite Fire Risk Assessment to be carried out for our company Wilmoths, which is the largest Citroen group in the south east of England.
We were given a prompt appointment date and time.
On the day the assessor arrived early, so we had plenty of time to discuss the plan of action for our visit and they explained in depth what the assessment would entail.
I worked closely with the assessor on the day, who was very friendly, professional and informative. T2 carried out a very comprehensive Fire risk Assessment on our site, which I found very educational.
The Fire Risk Assessment report was very comprehensive, in depth and highlighted area’s we were not previously made aware of by a previous company.
T2 Fire are very passionate and professional in their approach to the welfare of your business and staff. T2 Fire’s experience and knowledge is invaluable and we would recommend T2 Fire to any businesses that are looking for very professional and friendly service.
Wilmoths Citroen will continue to work with T2 Fire in the future, and we look forward to using their services again.
