What is a Fire Risk Assessment?

A Fire Risk Assessment (FRA) is a comprehensive evaluation of your property to identify potential fire hazards, assess the likelihood of a fire occurring, and determine the potential impact on people and property. The assessment includes a detailed examination of fire safety measures, emergency exits, fire detection and alarm systems, fire-fighting equipment, and staff training. The goal is to identify areas that need improvement and provide recommendations to enhance overall fire safety.

How often should a Fire Risk Assessment be conducted?

The frequency of conducting a Fire Risk Assessment depends on the type of property and any significant changes that occur. Generally, it’s recommended to review the assessment annually. However, if there are substantial alterations to the building, changes in its use, or significant incidents such as a fire or near-miss, a new assessment should be conducted immediately. Regular reviews ensure that your fire safety measures remain effective and up-to-date.

In the UK, Fire Risk Assessments are a legal requirement under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. This legislation mandates that all non-domestic properties, including commercial buildings, workplaces, and public venues, must have a suitable and sufficient Fire Risk Assessment. The responsibility lies with the ‘Responsible Person,’ typically the employer, owner, or occupier of the premises. Failure to comply can result in fines or imprisonment.

What does a Fire Risk Assessment report include?

A Fire Risk Assessment report provides a detailed account of the findings from the assessment. It includes:

  • Identification of fire hazards and potential sources of ignition
  • Evaluation of existing fire safety measures and their effectiveness
  • Assessment of the likelihood of fire occurrence and potential consequences
  • Recommendations for improving fire safety, including upgrades to equipment, procedures, and staff training
  • A prioritised action plan to address identified issues and enhance fire safety

How long does a Fire Risk Assessment take to complete?

The duration of a Fire Risk Assessment depends on the size and complexity of the property. For small to medium-sized premises, the assessment typically takes a few hours to a full day. Larger or more complex buildings may require several days to complete a thorough assessment. Our team at Onguard Fire Protection will provide an estimated timeframe during the initial consultation to ensure minimal disruption to your operations.

Who can carry out a Fire Risk Assessment?

A Fire Risk Assessment should be conducted by a competent person with the necessary skills, knowledge, and experience. This person should understand the principles of fire safety, relevant legislation, and the specific risks associated with different types of properties. At Onguard Fire Protection, our qualified assessors have extensive experience in conducting comprehensive Fire Risk Assessments, ensuring your business is fully compliant and protected against fire hazards.
