All premises/business that have more than five people/employees must carry out a fire risk assessment. A FRA or Fire risk assessment is a procedure involving a systematic evaluation that factors and determines the hazard that may occur if a fire was to breakout. This is to be conducted by a Responsible Person (RP) following the guidelines of The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. The assessment will include the following;
- Identifying the fire hazards.
- Evaluating the emergency exit routes.
- Ensuring all fire equipment is in the correct location and serviced accurately.
- A record of the findings, alongside list any conclusions that may need to be changed to comply with current standards.
- Assess people at risk.
Once the FRA is complete you may find outstanding actions are required. These actions can either be Low – action is required before the next visit, Medium – action is required within the next 30 days, High – immediate action must be taken.
All of our FRA once completed are uploaded onto a live cloud portal. Here any recommendations that have been given, you have can be updated yourself. Once again this will enable this document to be up to date at all times following mandatory weekly/monthly checks that should be done by a ‘responsible person’. If you have any questions regarding this please feel free to ask for a complimentary consultation.
