WHAT IS A FIRE Risk Assessment?
A fire risk assessment is a process that assesses the risks of fire and how best to prevent it from occurring. In addition, a fire risk assessment will look at where fires are likely to start, how quickly they spread and what sort of damage they can do. Also, for any fire risk assessment in Derby, we have you covered. Without a doubt, an FRA is the most important part of running any business. The purpose of a fire risk assessment is clear.
A process of identifying fire hazards in your premises.
Minimising the risks of injury.
Understanding the potential fire risks within your building.

How often should a fire risk assessment 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.
If you’re in need of an updated fire assessment or aren’t sure whether you are, get in touch. After that one of our Fire Protection Consultants can answer all of your questions.
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.
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
- Management of fire safety
- Subsequently the assessment should be carried out by a suitably trained, qualified and experienced fire risk assessor.
