Fire risk assessment

Conducting a fire risk assessment will identify any shortfalls in management controls and required remedial actions, providing reassurance that the safety of building occupants aligns with legislative requirements.

Why is a fire risk assessment required?

The responsible person must arrange a fire risk assessment of the premises and ensure it is regularly reviewed. This will identify what you need to do to prevent fire and keep people safe. A fire risk assessment will provide recommendations to reduce risk to an acceptable level; identifying occupants who are especially at risk and providing solutions to further support their safety. Fire risk assessments will confirm if required plans and procedures are in place including; Emergency Plans, Personal Emergency Evacuation Plans, Inspections, Fire Drills and Fire Training.
