Fire Risk Assessment

Due to the introduction of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order on 1st October 06 businesses will no longer be required to apply for a fire certificate for office premises. Instead the fire certificate previously issued by the fire authority will be replaced by a fire risk assessment with the onus shifted to the employer or owner of the premises.

The fire risk assessment should cover the specific fire risks and fire arrangements in detail and include;-
  • A competent person on a regular basis should review the fire risk assessment to ensure the fire arrangements are up to date.
  • Employees should receive specific training in the fire arrangements in order to know what action to take in the event of a fire.
