What is a Fire Risk Assessment?
Fire risk assessments are an interior and exterior fire safety inspection of your premises that will help identify all the fire hazards and risks it poses. The aim of a fire risk assessment is to remove those hazards and risks or reduce them to an acceptable level, ensuring that your premises have adequate and legally compliant fire protection measures in place.
Why do I need a Fire Risk Assessment?
Having a fire risk assessment is the law! The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, means that any person who has some level of control in an organisation and/or for premises must take reasonable steps to reduce the risk from fire and make sure people can safely escape if there is a fire.
This cannot be done by a company/individual as an act of self-regulated fire protection, a fire risk assessment must be conducted by independent, certified, and regulated fire protection specialists. Element PFP is one of those specialists.
Who is Responsible for Fire Risk Assessments?
You’re known as the ‘Responsible Person' and therefore responsible for fire safety in business or any other non-domestic premises if any of the following apply to you:
Anyone else with control of the premises (like a facilities manager, building manager, managing agent or risk assessor.)
As such, anybody matching the above descriptions or similar within your organisation can be deemed responsible and accordingly designated to arrange and book a fire risk assessment for your premises.
