What Is a Fire Risk Assessment?

A fire risk assessment is an organised and methodical review of a property, the activities and people within it, evaluating the potential of a fire occurring, the harm it could cause and establishing whether the existing fire safety measures are adequate.

The main aims of a fire risk assessment are to;

  • Identify potential fire risks and hazards
  • Make recommendations on how identified risks can be reduced or removed
  • Determine what fire safety measures, equipment, management policies or strategies should be implemented
  • Identify people who are at risk

At T2 Fire, our expert assessors in Sutton specialise in providing high quality, affordable and effective fire risk assessments for commercial, residential and industrial properties of all types. With our professional risk assessment services, we help to precisely evaluate the premises and produce actionable insights and tailored recommendations for safety measures that will help to mitigate risks.

Here are some of the ways that fire risk assessments can help to;

  • Create an awareness of hazards and risks within the building
  • Identify vulnerable people most at risk so that measures can be put in place to better protect them
  • Determine if the existing fire safety measures are sufficient and what can be done to improve them
