Duty holders of non-domestic premises have a legal duty under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 to assess their premises for the risk of fire.
A fire risk assessment will identify what you need to do to prevent a fire and keep people safe. It should consider how a fire could start, the people most at risk and what actions you will take to control these risks. If your business has 5 or more people you must keep a written record of the assessment and ensure it is regularly reviewed. The findings of the risk assessment must also be communicated to staff.
If you do not have the expertise or time to conduct the fire risk assessment yourself you can appoint a ‘competent person’ such as a professional risk assessor to help.
If you require a fire risk assessment contact the Prime Safety team where we will be happy to assist. Let us know the address where you need the assessment to take place, the approximate size of the building and a brief description. We can then come back to you with a quote and our nearest availability to conduct the assessment.
