Fire Risk Assessment Surveys

What you need to know:

Since 2006, the old Fire Certificate, issued by the fire service is no more.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 require the person responsible (employer, owner or occupier) for any premises, to ensure a full fire risk assessment is undertaken.

What you need to do:

Produce a fire risk assessment to identify fire risks and ensure they are removed or reduced to the lowest reasonably practicable level, in order to protect the building and the safety of those in it.

What could happen if you don't?

Fire and Rescue Authorities are the principal enforcers of the legislation. They have the power to issue an alteration, enforcement or prohibition notice, restricting or prohibiting the use of the building. Disregard for any of these notices may result in prosecution.

How can we help?

Our experienced risk management experts are either retired or retained fire officers.

Their assessment process includes:

  • Fire fighting equipment
  • Fire detection equipment
  • Emergency procedures
  • Safety equipment maintenance schedules and condition
  • Escape routes
  • Special groups at risk including children and people with disabilities.

They can also give fire awareness training for fire marshals and wardens plus help with fire evacuation drill exercises.

We give you a report, which highlights potential areas of risk and recommends any improvements.
