What is A Fire Risk Assessment & What is The Process

A fire risk assessment is a methodical review of a building for fire prevention. It assesses the likelihood and consequences of a fire, and outlines actions to mitigate any risk.

The assessment comprises of three key steps:

  1. It carefully reviews your premises, considering the activities conducted there and the people occupying the building, whether residents or workers.
  2. The assessment then identifies at-risk individuals, potential fire hazards, and determines the necessary fire safety measures and equipment.
  3. Following the assessment, you will receive a comprehensive documentation containing suggestions and recommended changes. Additionally, a definitive date for a review of the fire risk assessment (within 12 months) will be provided.

The main goal is to recognize and mitigate potential risks and hazards, prioritizing the safety of all occupants and minimizing the likelihood and impact of a potential fire outbreak.

The Law on Fire Safety

Since 2005, the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order (FSO) has mandated all ‘non-domestic’ premises, including common areas of purpose-built flats and houses in multiple occupation (HMOs), to comply with fire safety legislation, making fire risk assessments obligatory.

The FSO references a ‘responsible person’ who bears the responsibility for upholding fire safety regulations. This person is typically an employer, business owner, landlord, or managing agent, depending on the type of property. The responsible person has a duty of care to all those who enter and remain on the premises to take reasonable precautions to ensure their safety, such as conducting a fire risk assessment.

Failure to conduct a fire risk assessment is a crime that can result in up to two years in prison and/or an unlimited fine. Neglecting the recommended improvements identified by the assessment is also a criminal offence.
