Fire risk assessment

Carrying out a fire risk assessment delivers real benefits to business; by taking a few simple steps to reduce fire risks, employers can prevent fires breaking out.

The questions you need to ask yourself are:

  • Have you been proactive in doing a full fire risk assessment for your business?
  • Are you aware that full documentary evidence of this risk assessment needs to be kept to allow inspection at any time?
  • Would your business stand up to an ad-hoc inspection from the fire brigade who not only need to see evidence of a fire risk assessment but also the full documentation to show you have completed it, if you employ five or more people?

If the answer is NO, then it is time to act.

All buildings owners and employers must undertake a fire risk assessment this must be completed by a competent person.

Unless you have experience it can sometimes be surprisingly hard to spot potential fire hazards. Our fire risk assessment services will help you protect your premises and people by giving you full visibility of what the fire risks are and where they lie.

We at HSE Solutions can supply the person who will complete the fire risk assessment in conjunction with your staff. Once the fire risk assessment is complete, you will be provided with an easy to understand, personally tailored report. This will form the basis of your on-going fire safety procedures and demonstrate compliance.

Alternatively if your company is a low risk environment it may be more cost effective to train your own personnel to complete your fire safety risk assessment. For more information, see fire training.
