Commercial Fire Risk Assessments

Commercial fire risk assessment & safety regulations in the UK

Beyond ensuring the safety of your commercial building, conducting a fire risk assessment can also shield you from potentially expensive legal penalties.

The following fire safety legislations mandate that all types of buildings (excluding domestic residential properties) in the UK undergo a thorough fire risk assessment:

  •  The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (England and Wales)
  • The Fire Safety Regulations 2006 (Scotland)
  • The Fire Safety Regulations 2010 (Northern Ireland)

This requirement is applicable to public and commercial properties, covering offices, factories, schools, warehouses, hospitals, retail outlets, and other licensed premises.

Landlords and property owners bear the responsibility of ensuring the safety of their tenants in relation to fire-related incidents. Ideally, a comprehensive fire risk assessment should be conducted annually to guarantee optimal protection.
