Fire Risk Assessment

What are the implications for businesses?

Each location will have an identifiable ‘responsible person’ who takes full corporate responsibility. The ‘responsible person’ should contract a competent supplier, relevant to fire safety products and services, who has ‘the appropriate skills and experience’. They should have proof of this so that it can be produced at an inspection, pre or post incident.

How can we help?

We have the competent persons to carry out the fire risk assessment. With this document, you will know exactly what you need to do to comply with the Order, and protect yourself from prosecution, and possible fines or a jail sentence. We specialise in High Life Risk premises, but can carry out the task for all premises and events that need a risk assessment, from a small shop to a large outdoor event. Please contact us for further information.

From the 1st of October, the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 applies to all non-domestic premises in England and Wales, including the common parts of blocks of flats and houses in multiple occupation (HMOs). The law applies to you if you are:

  • responsible for business premises
  • an employer or self-employed with business premises
  • responsible for a part of a dwelling where that part is solely used for business purposes
  • a charity or voluntary organisation
  • a contractor with a degree of control over any premises
  • providing accommodation for paying guests

Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, the responsible person must carry out a fire safety risk assessment and implement and maintain a fire management plan.
