Fire Risk Assessment
A full Fire Risk Assessment is a legal responsibility for all non-domestic premises – and you’re also required by law to keep a full written record of your assessment if your business employs 5 or more people. At JLA we can carry out a full check – along with ongoing fire risk assessment guidance – to help you meet government legislation by:
- Identifying all potential fire hazards
- Identifying who might be at risk
- Evaluating, then removing or reducing those risks
- Recording findings and documenting an emergency plan
- Supplying, installing, maintaining and fixing all required fire safety equipment
(A legal requirement under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
The Responsible Person in your business must carry out and regularly review a fire risk assessment of the premises. This will identify what you need to do to prevent fire and keep people safe.Source: Government Guidelines – Fire Safety In The Workplace
Why Do I Need A Fire Risk Assessment?
A fire safety risk assessment identifies potential hazards and risks within your business, which allows issues to be addressed and prevents incidents occurring.
A risk assessment should be carried out on an annual basis, but it should also be reviewed regularly, especially if any changes take place, such as an increase in people, building work and changes to floor plans.
JLA’s expert fire risk assessors have the relevant industry accreditations and latest industry knowledge. They will provide the correct advice as well as highlighting any improvements areas - which will all be contained in a comprehensive fire risk assessment report which you can keep for your records as required by law.
