Fire Risk Assessment
Stay safe and comply with law
WHAT IS A FIRE RISK ASSESSMENT?
The current fire safety regime requires those persons with responsibility for a workplace to ensure the safety of others by putting in place appropriate fire safety measures based on an assessment of the risk from fire. In order to comply the “responsible person” or “duty holder”, normally the employer or person who has control of the premises, must ensure that a fire risk assessment is undertaken by a “competent person”.
The assessment identifies fire hazards and the steps required to prevent fire, in order to protect the safety of employees, visitors and those in the vicinity who may be affected.
MEET YOUR FIRE SAFETY OBLIGATIONS
An FPG fire risk assessment can help you meet your fire safety obligations. Our fire risk assessments are conducted in accordance with PAS 79, a national standard for fire risk assessments, and are audited in line with our ISO 9001 quality management system. They meet the requirements of all current UK fire legislation including the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 and Fire Safety (Scotland) Regulations 2006, the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, and the Fire Precautions (Workplace) Regulations (N.I.).
We carry out a thorough inspection of your workplace including a check of all paperwork and management systems before compiling the assessment using sector specific guidance, British Standards and European Standards to determine where your workplace is performing well and highlight areas for improvement.
COMPREHENSIVE REPORT AND ACTION PLAN
The Fire Risk Assessment is presented in an easy to understand report detailing the areas of need and the priority associated with each issue raised. Photographs will be provided to help demonstrate or explain the issues arising. An action plan will lay out the priorities and recommended timescales for completion and the assessment can be presented to Managers to allow for discussion and clarity on the various issues highlighted.
Our Fire Risk Assessment Team bring experience from the UK Fire Service and from the Construction Industry giving them the knowledge and experience to carry out the assessments to a high standard. We can carry out assessments on a wide range of premises from single occupancy to complicated multi-occupancy premises and from Office to Industrial environments. As we strive to improve our service we are working towards BAFE 205 certification.
