Fire Safety Risk Assessment
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRO) is the fire safety law that applies to England and Wales. The RRO states that you must have a written fire safety risk assessment if:
1. You employ 5 or more employees;
2. A licence under an enactment is in force in relation to the premises;
3. An alterations notice requiring this is in force in relation to the premises.
Knowing what to do in the event of a fire is critical. Knowing how to prevent fires in the first place is paramount to the safety of your employees and business continuity. Having a suitable and sufficient fire safety risk assessment in place is not only a legal requirement but will help you to identify what hazards there are in your workplace, who is potentially at risk and what can be done to reduce or remove the risk.
If you don’t have the expertise or time to do your business fire risk assessment yourself you need to appoint a competent person and that is where we can help. We will visit your business on a date and time that best suits you and are able to carry out fire safety risk assessments anywhere in Cumbria and the North of England.
Are you looking to alter or extend your building? You may need a preliminary fire risk assessment in place to meet the requirements of the Fire Safety Law and Building Regulations. This may be requested by the Fire and Rescue Service and Building Control. We can help with this.
We can also help with your fire evacuation strategies, fire policy, fire maintenance programmes and fire procedures.
