Fire Risk Assessments

Fire risk assessment & safety regulations in the UK

Aside from ensuring your building’s safety, a fire risk assessment can also save you from costly legal penalties. The following fire safety legislations require all types of buildings (excluding domestic residential property) in the UK to undergo 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 applies to public and commercial properties including offices, factories, schools, warehouses, hospitals, retail outlets, and other licensed premises.

It is the duty of landlords and property owners to ensure their tenants’ safety from fire-related accidents. Ideally, a fire risk assessment should be done annually to ensure maximum protection.

Promotes fire safety culture

A fire risk assessment enables you to equip tenants with appropriate safety instruction and training in the event of a fire. Adopting a fire safety culture can minimise incidents and promote everyone’s well-being.

Reduces your property’s risk levels

A highly qualified assessor will examine all kinds of fire hazards including heaters, lighting, and fuel sources. Addressing these issues earlier can reduce risk level and increase the safety of your property.
