What is a Fire Risk Assessment?
There is a legal requirement to undertake a Fire Risk Assessment in nearly all commercial buildings, and the certain parts of residential buildings. This legal requirement is set out in The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
The Fire Safety Order requires reasonable steps to be taken to reduce the risk from ﬁre and to ensure that people can safely escape out of the building. To meet the relevant requirements of the Order, the responsible person must carry out a suitable and sufficient ﬁre risk assessment to enable the safe occupation of the building. The risk assessment is a live document that should be up to date always and consider any changes within the building.
A responsible person must:
carry out a fire risk assessment of the premises and review it regularly
tell staff or their representatives about the risks have been identified
put in place, and maintain, appropriate fire safety measures
plan for an emergency
provide staff information, fire safety instruction and training
