Fire Risk Assessments

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RR(FS)O) was introduced on the 1st of October 2006 and brought about a fundamental change by shifting the emphasis from the enforcers to the employers through self compliance. The order applies to virtually all premises and covers nearly every type of building, structure and open space put to certain uses.

 

Fire Marque can carry out an impartial and independent Fire Risk Assessment of your premises, by a highly trained professional that is listed on the register of approved fire risk assessors by the Institute of Fire Safety Managers and the Fire Industry Association. This will take the form of a formal visit to the premises to carry out an inspection which will normally be completed in one day. Your premises will be subject to a detailed examination for compliance, according to the type of risks you have (sleeping or non-sleeping, number and ability of persons either employed or likely to be on the premises, storage of highly flammable substances and/or explosive materials etc). Following this risk assessment a detailed report will be produced, highlighting all points identified as not satisfactory (the significant findings). These points will then be highlighted within an 'action plan' with each item given a priority rating for completion.

 

Every one of our Fire Risk Assessments comes with a full money back guarantee should it not be deemed 'Suitable & Sufficient' by the Local Authority Fire & Rescue Service (Terms & Conditions apply) and our Fire Risk Assessments are now accredited to the Institute of Fire Safety Managers and cover all the following areas during the inspection;

  • Combustible, Flammable and Ignition Hazards
  • Electrical Safety Hazards
  • Active and Passive Fire Protection
  • Evacuation and Escape Routes
  • Fire Warning System
  • Emergency Lighting System
  • Fire Fighting Equipment
  • Staff Training
  • Arson Preparedness

All our fire risk assessments follow the guidance given in PAS79:2012 - Fire Risk Assessment Guidance and a recommended methodology, which is issued by the British Standards Institute.
