Fire Risk Assessments

Fire safety risk assessments consists of a 5 step check-list where the "responsible person" must carry out and regularly review a fire risk assessment of the premises.

First, you need to identify what could cause a fire at your business property and what materials could burn. You should also identify who is at risk during a fire and if they are especially vulnerable e.g. the elderly, disabled and children.

Evaluate the risk of a fire starting and remove potential fire hazards. Protect people by using appropriate fire fighting equipment and precautions e.g. fire detection and warning systems, emergency routes and exits.

You then need to create a record of the fire hazards discovered at your business premises and create an action plan in case of a fire starting. If you have 5 or more employees a written record must be kept.

The relevant members of your team should be instructed and trained. Fire risk assessments for commercial organisations should be reviewed on a regular basis as the nature of your business can change over time, e.g. new work practices, significant increase in stock levels or tackled a fire recently.
