A fire risk assessment is required under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, and assesses risks arising from fire hazards within your working environment.

Examples of fire hazards may be:

  • Wedged open fire doors
  • Unsafe electrical equipment
  • Obstructed fire routes
  • Untrained fire wardens

It is a requirement that the fire risk assessment be carried out by a competent person.  Failure to comply with this requirement may render a fire risk assessment as non-conforming and void.

On a practical level, the main benefit of a fire risk assessment is to reduce the likelihood of fire hazards resulting in harm.

On a legal level, the main benefit of having a fire risk assessment in place is that if a worst-case scenario does happen and a fire hazard does result in harm, your organisation will have a legal defence.

These benefits rely on the risk assessment being kept up-to-date, and recommendations made in the risk assessment being acted on within a reasonable timeframe.
