Fire Risk Assessment
If you run a business in the UK, Fire Risk Assessment is a legal requirement. Since the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 came into force in 2007, it has been necessary for most businesses, other building owners to have a written assessment in place. Fire Risk Assessment is covered by the guides set out in British Standard 9999, Fire Safety in Buildings and by PAS79.
Where a business property is likely to be occupied by less than five people the assessment need not be a written one, although this may cause problems should you be required to prove fire safety measures later.
Assessing Fire Risk
Accord Fire & Security Services Ltd believe there are strong benefits for every business having a professionally completed, written fire risk assessment. These include a reduction in liability as that passes to us when we complete your assessment.
A Fire Risk Assessment should be the cornerstone of fire safety policy as the report will define fire safety policy, the steps taken to reduce fire risks, and provide documentary proof of compliance with the law. It covers many areas which can be considered as a fire risk including the building itself, work processes, storage, fire prevention measures, fire alarm maintenance, and existing practices.
On completion of the risk assessment a Fire Safety Action Plan is also produced which will highlight any areas requiring improvement or amendment for full compliance. Where remedial work is identified Accord Fire & Security Services Ltd will also undertake to resolve identified items as part of the service, subject to approval of our quotation.
