Fire risk assessments from £295+vat
Fire risk assessments are required in all workplaces and also for communal areas of residential flats. If you are the Responsible Person of a workplace you must have a fire risk assessment and furthermore, it must be suitable and sufficient. Also, fire risk assessments are required for other types of buildings such as halls, churches and other non-domestic dwellings.
While managers can provide any type of fire risk assessment, we recommend using a national public standard. London Fire Brigade officers may audit your building, therefore the assessment must pass their audit criteria.
Our team can provide fire risk assessments and also fire emergency plans. In addition, we provide PAS 79 assessments and traffic light style reports. The reports and easy to understand action plans will therefore help managers improve fire safety.
What type of workplaces need fire risk assessments?
All workplaces need fire risk assessments and also must have a fire emergency plan. In addition, the significant findings of the fire risk assessment need to be in writing if there are five or more employees.
In multi-tenanted buildings, all tenants will need a fire risk assessment and the landlord will also need one. Therefore, a commercial building with four tenants would need five fire risk assessments. One for each workplace and also one for the common areas. The significant findings of the fire risk assessments should be shared with each tenant so that they understand all of the risk s in the premises.
Our team of fire risk assessors have provided assessments for over a thousand companies and furthermore, all have fire service backgrounds. We have provided fire risk assessments for offices, factories, shops, restaurants, hotels, theatres, hospitals, flats and also construction sites.
How are the inspections carried out?
Our fire risk assessments are carried out to a national standard so are done in two parts. First of all, we will inspect the entire workplace and then look in all rooms and cupboards etc. The inspection is non-invasive, so we do not look in wall cavities, underfloors and in lofts.
We look at any management procedures and these should include fire emergency plans,evacuation plans and also disabled person procedures. In addition, we look at maintenance records such as fire alarm tests, fire extinguishers and emergency lighting. Our team will either send a full list of what we need to review before we visit your building or call you to explain what is required.
A manager will need to accompany us throughout the visit and also explain all record keeping. Therefore, we can explain any problems we find and then again in the report action plan.
Managers can contact us either by phone or email for more details.
