FIRE RISK ASSESSMENTS
9.—(1) The responsible person must make a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risks to which relevant persons are exposed for the purpose of identifying the general fire precautions he needs to take to comply with the requirements and prohibitions imposed on him by or under this Order
Article 13, The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
Completing a suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment is the first step to making your premises safer from fire and is required by law under the fire reform order.
A fire risk assessment is an organised and methodical look at your premises, the activities carried out and the likelihood that a fire could start and cause harm to those in and around the premises.
If your business employs five or more employees you should keep a formal record of any significant findings and remedial measures which have, or may need to be taken. The law states it is the requirement of the "responsible person" to ensure this is available for inspection by the enforcing authorities. The risk assessment can be written by the responsible person or an employee or agent such as ourselves acting on their behalf.
