FIRE RISK ASSESSMENTS

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.

NEED A FIRE RISK ASSESSMENT ?

  • If you are responsible for business premises
  • an employer or self-employed with business premises
  • responsible for a part of a dwelling where that part is solely used for business purposes
  • a charity or voluntary organisation
  • a contractor with a degree of control over any premises
  • providing accommodation for paying guests

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.

Expert Fire Risk Assessors

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.
