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 which 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 and
  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.

We engaged Emma and her team over two years ago to advise us on and assist us with health and safety issues during the design and planning phases as well as the construction stages of the development of an injection moulding factory. Emma and her team have been a tremendous support to us, they never tired of our endless questions and made us understand the UK regulations and requirements. Their friendly guidance throughout the project was excellent. Apart from professional knowledge and dedication to H&S issues, we appreciated Emma’s warm personality. We thoroughly enjoyed working with her and in case of a new project, no doubt, we will engage Walker Health & Safety again.

PR Manager, Plastic Injection Molding Service
We engaged Emma from Walker Health and Safety over two years ago. Although an established Company, we needed help setting up our H&S systems to be compliant with current legislation. Emma was such an amazing help to us. Her advice, support and direction was just what we needed. Always there when we need her, we look forward to a long lasting relationship.

We engaged Emma over a year ago and her no-nonsense approach to removing the 'mystique' from Health and Safety has been invaluable. Her documentation is clear and concise and any queries are met with a speedy, clear response. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Emma for your health and safety needs.
