With large fines and potential imprisonment imposed for regulatory breaches, ensuring a fire risk assessment is undertaken and regularly reviewed is imperative for employers, business owners and landlords alike.
Complying with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, our fire risk assessments include a site visit by a fully qualified Fire Risk Assessor. They will conduct a full non-destructive site survey of the building or area of your responsibility to identify/assess:
- Who is at risk
- Process and/or building hazards
- Potential ignition sources
- Any deficiencies in existing fire precautions/procedures
- Correct type(s)/quantities and suitably maintained fire safety equipment
- Appropriate fire training and drills
- Appropriate signs/notices
- Suitable means for detecting fire and raising the alarm if a fire were to occur
- Adequate means of escape in the event of a fire
Our documented fire risk assessment would not only reduce the risk of fire occurring and ensure compliance with current fire legislation but also ensure that you have appropriate precautions and safeguards in place to protect staff and visitors.
Our Fire Risk Assessors are fully qualified and technically competent to conduct fire risk assessments. They’re also trained to provide guidance in accordance with either British Standards or Building Regulations.
This guide is for all employers, head teachers, governors, vice-chancellors, occupiers and owners of premises where the main use of the building (or part of the building) is for educational purposes including:
- schools including Sunday schools and after-school clubs
- adult education centres
- outdoor education centres
- music schools
This guide does not apply to residential premises such as university halls of residence, and boarding school sleeping accommodations.
