Fire Risk Assessments For Homes & Offices

Are you meeting current legal fire safety guidelines?

If you have a business premises, or are responsible for residential premises (as a landlord) then you are legally required to carry out regular fire risk assessments. Failure to do so could result in financial fines or prison sentences.

Don’t fall foul of the latest legal requirements and make sure the electrics in your property are safe

What is a fire risk assessment?

When carrying out a full fire risk assessment, all areas of the building are checked and cross-referenced with current guidelines to ensure they adhere to the regulations listed.

This includes;

  • The layout and structure of the premises
  • Number of occupants residing/working in the building
  • Assess emergency lighting
  • Assess if there is any history of fire in the building
  • Review designated smoking areas
  • Application and usage of fire safety signage
  • Correct installation of fire extinguishers

There are many more elements included within the risk assessment which our experts will discuss with you in more detail

When do I need a fire risk assessment?

You should have regular checks made, in the same way a vehicle requires an annual MOT, your building should be no different.

An assessment should be carried out at intervals recommended by British Standards (BS) guidance. This is usually every 1-2 years.

If you have more than 5 people in your business premises then you MUST, by law, keep records of assessments.  We help take care of this as part of our standard visit.

Who is responsible for the assessment?

Every building, both businesses and flats, MUST have a ‘Responsible Person’ listed. It is the responsibility of this individual to ensure that the building is safe and correct checks are carried out.

For more small business owners, this would mean there is only 1 person available to be responsible and we work closely with you to ensure everything is carried out as swiftly as possible.

Sadly, fire risk assessments are not considered an important part of the business management but as this is a legal requirement we’re here to help make things easy.
