WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR COMPLETING A FIRE RISK ASSESSMENT?
In England and Wales, you may be responsible for fire safety and are known as the ‘responsible person’. Certainly if you’re an employer, person who has control of the premises or owner of the building/business other than a single domestic dwelling.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 details what you have to do to comply with the law. In addition, you must keep a written record of your fire risk assessment if your business has 5 or more people.
Finally, it is important to note that you could be fined and/or go to prison if you don’t follow fire safety regulations.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD FIRE RISK ASSESSMENTS BE REVIEWED?
Fire risk assessments are a legal requirement. We recommend they are reviewed annually. In addition, The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, requires a fire risk assessment to be reviewed if there are changes in the business. For example structural alterations, change of building use and increase in occupancy. For this reason a new fire risk assessment should be completed.

What Do I Need To Do Before the FRA Is Carried Out?
In order to properly carry out the assessment, the assessor should have a minimum understanding of the following:
- Fire alarm system categories and design standards.
- Emergency lighting design standards.
- Fire extinguisher and fire safety sign and notice standards.
- Fire risk guidance documents.
- Current building regulations.
Effects of fire on people and behaviour of people in fire situations.
- Means of escape.
- Fire prevention.
