Do I need a fire risk assessment?

August 16, 2011
 

The effects of a fire can be devastating in terms of lives lost, injuries and damage to property.  Fires also cost money and it is estimated that up to 80% of businesses never fully recover from a serious fire. Most fires are preventable and can be avoided by those responsible for commercial buildings taking responsibility for and adopting fire safe behaviours and procedures.

In order to ensure that greater responsibility is taken by those in charge of commercial properties the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 has been introduced. Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 the person responsible for the commercial premises MUST arrange for the completion of a fire safety risk assessment and implement and maintain a fire management plan. If the organisation employs more than five people the findings of the assessment MUST be recorded.
