Fire Risk Assessment

Fire Risk Assessment

At Emprocom, we have carried out fire risk assessments for many types of business and premises around Lincolnshire and much further afield. We always take a practical approach taking into account your business operations and needs, whilst meeting required standards.

Fire risk assessments carried out by an experienced fire safety professional are a crucial exercise is ensuring the fire safety in your premises.

Fire risk assessments are a legal requirement under the The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, which stipulates a “responsible person” must ensure a fire risk assessment is in place for all premises other than private domestic dwellings. Although, communal areas for blocks of flats would need a fire risk assessment.

A fire risk assessment identifies all potential fire risks, and details what physical measures should be in place for your premises such as fire alarms and emergency lighting (which are not always needed), escape routes and fire resisting partitions. It will also detail what management arrangements you need in place such as fire safety training and fire drills.

Other examples of what a fire risk assessment covers are as follows:

  • Fire hazards
  • Fire prevention
  • Compartmentation
  • Fire detection and alarm systems
  • Smoke control systems
  • Testing and maintenance
  • Records

This is just a brief summary of what a fire risk assessment consists of, but if you would like to learn more please feel free to get in touch and one of our fire risk assessors can advise what might apply to your situation.
