Fire Safety Risk Assessments

In order to comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, it is necessary to complete a specific fire-related risk assessment. The fire risk assessment takes into consideration all employees and any other persons who may be affected by a fire within the workplace and surrounding areas. The assessment must be documented when more than five people are employed in the workplace.

Walker Health & Safety Services can carry out a fire risk assessment and will check that principles of prevention have been applied.

The principles of a Fire Risk Assessment are:

  1. Avoiding risks.
  2. Evaluating the risks which cannot be avoided.
  3. Combating the risks at source.
  4. Adapting to technical progress.
  5. Replacing the dangerous by the non-dangerous or less dangerous.
  6. Developing a coherent overall prevention policy that covers technology, organisation of work, and the influence of factors relating to the working environment.
  7. Giving collective protective measures priority over individual protective measures.
  8. Giving appropriate instructions to employees.

Failure to compile a suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment may result in the local fire authority taking enforcement action on employers or owners of premises. Walker Health & Safety Services will assist the organisation in compiling the fire risk assessment. We will provide guidance and advice to guarantee your compliance with the legislation.

Great service from Emma and what a lovely lady! Carried out our DSE workstation assessments and is happy to come back and check on us once we have our new chairs! Would definitely recommend.

I can safely say, the service I received from Walker Health and Safety Services was excellent…From the visit to our premises (on Emma's day off!) to the final risk assessment. I was consulted throughout the process, and everything was explained in a way I could understand. It was a very specific assessment that I needed but will definitely use them in the future for risk assessment/health and safety requirements.
