Fire Risk Assessments

Fire Safety Law

Under the Regulatory Reform Order, it is your responsibility as an employer to assess Fire Safety risks, implement measures to fight, detect and give warning of fire, plan exit routes and keep those routes clear of obstructions in order to ensure the safe evacuation of the building. The law applies to you if you are:

  • Responsible for a business premises
  • An employer or self-employed with business premises
  • Responsible for a part of a dwelling where that part is solely used for business purposes
  • A charity or voluntary organisation
  • A contractor with a degree of control over any premises
  • Providing accommodation for paying guests
Intelligent Security and Fire carry out professional Fire Risk Assessments for both residential and commercial premises to ensure that you comply with your legal and insurance requirements.

Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, the responsible person must carry out a Fire Safety Risk Assessment and implement and maintain a fire management plan. A Fire Risk Assessment ensures that you, as an individual, have taken all necessary steps to avoid fire from happening. Most insurance companies also require a Fire Risk Assessment to validate insurance policies. Further information on what you need to do when carrying out a risk assessment is available in the 5-step Fire Risk Assessment checklist.
