HSE consultants companies UK? What is a Fire Risk Assessment? A fire risk assessment is a process that involves assessing factors that could lead to a fire and how hazardous they are. The assessment will not only cover which factors are hazardous but how dangerous they are and what could happen if a fire broke out. Our fire risk assessors use both qualitative and quantitative fire risk assessment methods. Our consultants have many years of professional hands-on experience and include consultants who are members of the Institution of Fire Engineers and assessors who have completed the NEBOSH Fire Certificate.

Why do it? A Fire Risk Assessment is a legal requirement. If you are responsible for a building, for example a employer, owner or occupier of premises that aren’t a ‘single private dwelling’ (a private home), you need to make sure a suitably competent person completes a Fire Risk Assessment. It is your duty to identify fire risks and hazards in your premises and take appropriate action. In addition, if five or more people work at your premises or your business has a licence under enactment in force, you’ll need your fire risk assessment to be a written record. Make sure you review your risk assessment regularly and whenever significant changes have been made that would have an impact on it. It’s good business sense as well as a legal requirement, often businesses don’t recover after a fire, and effective fire prevention starts with properly understanding the risks.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order requires that the responsible person for any non-domestic premises must carry out a fire risk assessment of the premises and review it regularly. This depends on the seriousness of the offence and whether you’ve previously been told about matters. You may be served with an improvement notice requiring the Health & Safety failing to be sorted out or you can be taken to court.
