Fire risk assessments are something that the Responsible Person in a business is required by law to undertake. Furthermore, they have to be undertaken periodically, and certainly any time there is a change in the business which might affect the risk of fire or might affect safety such as a new machine hindering an escape route that was previously open.
The responsible person could be one person or several people who have control over certain areas of a building. So you might run a factory where you have someone in charge of the factory floor, someone else in charge of the accounts department, and so on. It could be the managing agent or owner for shared parts of the premises or shared fire safety equipment such as fire extinguishers and sprinkler systems. The law which came into effect in 2005 is different from previous legislation in that you now have to consider not just employees but anyone who might be on your premises such as customers or other visitors.
There are a lot of things to consider when undertaking a fire risk assessment. It is not too hard a job to do if you happen to be the owner of a small village store, although even then you have to take into account things such as combustible materials, so you might sell newspapers and magazines which are, of course, combustible. You would need to think about where you store the ones that have not sold until they are collected. Does this pose a fire risk? You also need to consider escape routes and you must bear in mind that you could have disabled people in your shop.
Of course, if you own a large organisation and are the responsible person, it can be very difficult for you to assess fire risks. They may be obvious to a trained individual, but someone not trained could miss something entirely. This is why it is far simpler to call in UK-FireRisk Assessments Ltd who can undertake a full assessment of your premises and provide you with a report which you are by law obliged to produce. In order to make life simple, UK-FireRisk Assessments Ltd is now providing fire assessments on a fixed fee basis dependent on the square footage of your premises. For a small business, these start at as little as £195. For this, you will get a report that is accurate and keeps you in compliance with the law.
